Using a quality psu is very important, and they are not easy to identify. Dunno what brands you can get over there, but a Seasonic 520W or Corsair 550W are fine and have plenty of power.

There are specific PSUs from other manufacturers that have been well reviewed and are acceptable quality. If you can't get a Seasonic or a Corsair, try a PSU rated "1" or "2" on this list:

i can get a CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W or a Corsair VX550W for about the same price. should i go with the 650w one?

Thanks bro but i will go with the Corsair 650TX i read some reviews and it is good for a single and in the future for 2 cards. it costs a little more here in greece (99 euro) but it is the best i can get for that money here.

The SS 650HT reccomended by mosox is an upgraded TX650 without the Corsair labels, paint or cable sleeving.
It does come with all 4 of the pcie power connectors needed for Xfire 6870's and a higher efficiency rating for less money.
