Look for a 600W+ PSU by Antec, Corsair, OCZ or if you got the money, Seasonic, PCP&C (bought out by OCZ). MadAdmiral December 11, 2009 1:25:49 PM 650W should be enough, but to be safe, go with a 750W. Stick with a major brand (Corsair, OCZ, Antec Earthwatts). I prefer Corsair, as I think they're the highest quailty, but you do pay a slight premium. Related resources How much wattage?

Only has 2 and each 5870 needs 2. Get the 750TX instead. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... cgb123 December 11, 2009 2:20:28 PM banthracis said:Um If you want to have 2 5870's, i assume that's what you meant by " Asus 5870 ( 2 X Next Year ) " then the CMPSU 650tx doesn't have enough 6 pin connectors.
