I need a PSU for a Crossfire HD 7970 PC the rest of the specs are in my signature.
Here is the PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
So is it reliable enough to run my PC? I think a 650w would run my PC fine but I want to leave some overclocking head room.
If you want to leave another recommendation I'd like to keep it in the same price range.
Thanks!

Absolutely not.

1. Apevia is a tier 5(not recommended, replace asap) unit on this list:

2. CF 7970 is a relatively power hungry card and wants about a 800w psu.

750 Is kinda enough the GPU won't use all all of its power till 800w
but if hes gonna overclock alil ya i would go witha 850w

In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKk2_1u26tg at around the 11:30 mark he shows two GTX 580s which have close to the same amount of power draw, plus an overclocked CPU which I think has a high default wattage requirement.
