  1. the antec 650w is a good one.

    Others would be:
    Corsair 650w/750w/550w
    Ocz 550w/700w
    Ultra 650w
  2. do you have any specific power supplies that would be good for this build, thanks
  3. id recamend anything over 600w maybe more if you want it to last a good few years. i find corsair are very reliable.
  4. The Antec you selected is a very good Power Supply

    Another very good unit
    CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W

  5. Well as you will not be able to crossfire, I feel a good quality 550W is more than suffice for that setup...
    Best would be a corsair but the 550VX is nearly the same price as the Antec...
    So go with this...

  6. I'd stick to the Antec you selected. I have never had a bad Antec PSU ever. Remember when in doubt go for Overkill (applies to PSU's).
