  1. I'd recommend one of these at around the same price:

    That raidmax isn't certified, and it doesn't have a very good selection of power cables.
  2. Raidmax is crap and the power figure is bloated. You would be better off with a quality 500-550w.
  3. Get this, on offer and will cover you for a 2nd 5770 or any card upgrade in the future.

    well i currently have this one picked out, would it handle the 5770 xfire?
  5. 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
  6. ah i see that now :)

    thanks for the info

  8. It says Corsair on the tin but..... Its got a 2yr warranty for a reason, why do all other Corsairs have 5 and 7 yrs??

    would that one run the 5770 in xfire?
  10. 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.
