Hey I was wondering...does a PSU need to say that its SLI or Crossfire ready in order for you to run sli or cf, or is that just a gimmicky type thing and most PSU's can run SLI/cf? I ask because I'm looking at this Antec CP-1000 1000W Continuous ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply but am not sure if it would work with crossfire.

Yea that PSU will run crossfire fine but most likely is more power then you need what GPU's are you planing on useing?

This Antec 750 watt unit would be more than enough to run that.

But I mean if you got the money go ahead and get the 1000 watt unit will leave plenty of headroom for later upgrades.

ATI only reccomends 600 watt PSU for dual 5870's so even with a 750 watt unit its overkill but will leave you plenty of overclocking headroom.

Now if its the eyefinity 6 edition then definitely get the 1000 watt unit they use more power.
