Hi
Just wondering if this PSU would be sufficient enough for this system:

http://www.xcase.co.uk/p/289105/x-power-700-watt-psu---...

Q9300
4850 crossfire
case with three led fans

Is that enough? I already own the PSU so dont really want to purchase a new one...It seems to run ok with my single 4850, but I want to add another one in. If i do have to upgrade though, I will.

Thanks

X Power is a no name brand PSU. Get a quality unit from Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, Antec, OCZ. A Corsair 650TX would do for your build.

^^^ or buy a PSU from Seasonic who makes many of the PSUs for those brands mentioned.

^+1. The linked device should mostly likely not be used to power a computer, particularly not one with dual graphics cards. I'm not sure what's available where you are. If you cannot find the brands Shadow or jaguar listed, Silverstone, Enermax, or possibly FSP would be suitable. There are a lot of good, competent reviews of PSUs at www.jonnyguru.com, www.hardocp.com, www.hardwaresecrets.com, and www.xbitlabs.com.
