Thanks for the quick reply. Is OCZ a trusted brand of Power Supply? I'm not familiar with them.

don't know what the broader view of OCZ is, but I've had a 650w in my current computer for about 3 years, with zero problems.

Well i wouldn't go with their StealthXtreme line as these aren't 80+ certified but the ModXtreme have tried, tested and built for peeps with good results ^^ You are welcomed :P

How big of a difference would it make if I decided to crossfire on that board x4/x4 compared to the board I picked x8/x8?
Jul 15, 2010, 6:47 PM
Well selected board specifically advocating single GPU solutions, upgrade accordingly later down the road. 16/4 is not recommended for multi GPU set ups

Okay thanks for the info.
