    Look for a 600W+ PSU by Antec, Corsair, OCZ or if you got the money, Seasonic, PCP&C (bought out by OCZ).
  2. 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.
  3. Thanks for the reply's,
  4. Could someone please give a link to a PSU that has all the connectors and is 600W+ ?

    Thanks..
  5. 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. Only has 2 and each 5870 needs 2.

    Get the 750TX instead.
