Raidmax is crap and the power figure is bloated. You would be better off with a quality 500-550w.

Its the exact same psu but just a different colour.

The one I listed actually works out cheaper with reduced postage, thats why I picked it. :D

I wouldnt try it, go for the XFX 650W unit as that will handle it without issue, the 600CX is a bit towards the weaker side to be trying to run CF on. The CX series isnt great, its decent, but not to the same quality as the 550VX is, i wouldnt push it by trying to run 2 5770s on it.
