  1. Best answer
    Can't go wrong with either of these: OCZ StealthXStream 700W $80 Powerful enough to crossfire 5850s
    Antec 300 Illusion $55
  2. Thanks Silvune!

    Any other suggestions?
  3. I would go with this PSU instead... CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power ... - Retail, if you plan to Crossfire. The OCZ has will require adaptors to Crossfire, since it only has 2 PCI-e connectors. If you don't plan on Crossfire, I would go with this PSU listed by Silvune.

    Antec 300 Illusion is a great case for the price... :)
