Hi. I was about to get MSI P55 GD65. But came to know that the board doesn't work with a few PSUs. Is that right?
Are there any alternatives at that price ($160) which offer SLI + Crossfire at x8, x8?

Have you found any reliable info that makes you believe your PSU is incompatible with that motherboard? For the cost difference (considering the whole system), why not go with the P55 GD80?

I haven't bought any PSU yet. But in the review of the same board on Anandtech, this problem has been listed.

They wrote "It refused to work with several of our test power supplies and we are not talking $35 no name units (they all worked perfectly), but some of the best power supplies from Corsair, BFG, Thermaltake, and others. We could grant a pass on this if it was just one power supply, but we noticed a definite pattern with this board and its big brother, the P55-GD80 when using Channel Well based power supplies. "

Since Anandtech tested it using a Corsair CMPSU-750HX, one can presume that this PSU is fine even though it's built by CWT. To be on the safe side (until MSI corrects the issue), you could buy a PSU from another manufacturer or modify your post title to ask what PSU other members are using with that motherboard.

I never tried it, but if it can't be done, you can create a new one. If you know what PSU you plan on buying, it might be relatively easy to check who manufactures it. It would also allow you to post "MSI P55-GD65 and xxxx PSU?"
