Yeah its fine, but if you are willing to deal with rebates you can pick up an XFX 650W unit for slightly more after MIR and shipping, its got enough power to let you throw in another 6870 in CF in a year or so for a nice performance boost

Change my vote to that TP650 if you want to be able to crossfire in the future


Davcon, why dont you like the delta versions? They are slightly more powerful and bronze rated until of 80+ basic, and including shipping the EA500D is only $2 more than the EA500

It's not that i don't like the Delta model it has to do with the fact that the OP lives in Pakistan.
This is the only retailer i know of in Pakistan.

I was just trying to be helpful recommending the best units based on price.
I have no idea how much shipping costs from USA to Pakistan.
But i'll say this Newegg.ca shipping costs within Canada are terrible imo.
Just an observation.

It will do just fine, if you are getting it for less than its listed on newegg then its a pretty good deal and will handle a 6870 fine, i have an EA500 running a 4850 with no problems at all.

That's fine you've made your point!
I stand corrected.
And this is probably the 4rth thread from the OP asking the same question.

Wasn't trying to make a point.
I didn't know that this OP is from Pakistan, just recalled another thread we were in earlier, where the OP was from Pakistan.
Sorry
