Just received an email from newegg about this. The price $50 after mir looks good enough to buy. Would this be able to handle 5850 crossfired?

It has ~56A on the 12V rail(s). Thats probably enough to handle the 5850 CF'd. Not sure about their stealth line. You might want to research that a bit to make sure its a good one.

5850's CF'd need about 20 - 22 amps, so yes, it has enough power.

Look at the label again, it's 56a combined on the 3.3v, 5v, and 12v rails. There's no 12v only rating on it.

The OCZ SteathXStream's are basically re-badged FSP Eplisons/Everests which have wildly variable quality. You might get a good one but then again you might not. Personally, I wouldn't take the risk.

Your right, I missed that. Looking at the label again I violates my information policy. I refuse to buy a PSU that won't tell you how powerful the rails are in total. I suggest you keep looking.

While the offer might be tempting, wait and save your money up for a slightly better quality power supply and in the end you will not be disappointed and it will deliver sufficient power to keep your 5850's running smoothly.

Hey guys, I have a 955 black edition @ 3.6ghz, 2x2 1333 ddr3 ram. I don't have the 5850's just yet, but Im planning the upgrade and just need a new psu since I only have a thermaltake 600watt psu at the moment. Looks like I'll move on and find a better PSU.

All OCZ 700 watt power supplies have shortcomings that are documented in competent technical reviews. It doesn't matter which model or series. OCZ left out features that one would expect to find in a high quality unit.

OCZ is inconsistent in the quality of their power suplies. Some are good, some are average, and some are not so good. Considering you will be crossfiring a couple of 5850's I would recommend purchasing a high quality power supply.

Corsair and Seasonic are two brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty. In addition, some of the newer models have earned a gold certification for energy efficiency.

Not sure I believe that Jonny. I thought the Z series was excellent? (or is there not 700W Z series?)
