I have a Corsair 700W PSU. I bought it back when I built my system to run my dual 4870's now I run two 6870's Corsair makes a great PSU, just make sure your case has room to put all the wires because they are pretty long.

thanks for the reply i have an nzxt phantom so it will be okay i just had to decide weather its worth spending £200 quid because my board has 1x16 1x4 pci-e crossfire wont make that much of a difference but its worth a go.
