Just Right? More about : psu good 4870x2 vouslavous November 16, 2008 11:16:01 PM It's more than enough. However if I were you i would go with a more well known brand Corsair, Antec, OCZ. A 600-700 watt PSU should be more than enough offwithhishead31 November 16, 2008 11:37:53 PM Thanks, Appreciate that!

The Corsair 750w and PC Power and Cooling 750 are both $100 after rebates and with free shipping at Newegg right now and both get great reviews across the board, go with one of them. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... offwithhishead31 November 17, 2008 3:59:18 PM I heard its better to have a Modular PSU.
