I'm getting a new pc upgrade and switching my gpu to a HD Radeon 7870 and my cpu to a amd fx 8350 and was wondering if this would work with the psu you I want which is here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If this will not work can you please give me ideas that will that are cheap?

Thanks for your help!

You will need more power than a 630W PSU.

The AMD HD Radeon 7870 consumes 500W and the AMD FX 8350 consumes 125W which in total is 625W. That is not enough as the PSU also has to power the motherboard which in turn powers everything else. E.G HDD, DVD drive etc..

I would say minimum is a 700W PSU. I would recommended getting a 750W PSU though.

Completely incorrect. A system with an HD 7870 needs 500 watts. The 7870 pulls about 130 watts by itself.

You can trust this site. It's for an entire system not just the card and leaves headroom for overclocking at least if you buy a quality power supply.

The PC Power and Cooling model listed by SR-71 Blackbird above is an excellent choice. You will not beat that quality for cheaper. That's a great sale as that model is usually closer to $100.

Just saw his edit adding the XFX. The PC Power and Cooling is modular and the XFX is not. Both are excellent quality though.
