Great new deal at Newegg for $59! Wondering if any of you have experience with this brand/unit!, or if the specs will support the following...

Antec three hundred case
Asus P8Z68-V Pro/gen 3 mobo
Asus GTX 570 CU II
I5-2500K CPU

Thanks in advance!!

i was thinking the same thing. i might get me another 2gb hd6950 during the holidays to xfire. i have a CM 650w gx series, this 1000w looks nice but im not too sure about Rosewill products.

Rosewill?? NOOOOOOOOOOO!

Stick with: Seasonic, Corsair, Antec/XFX in that order.

I'll almost guarantee you a GX650 won't run two 6950's.
The Rosewill is a better unit(it's not 1000w though more like 900w) = Sirtec oem.

Well a GX650 will run 2 6950s and an overclocked CPU with all the trimmings, but its cutting the power consumption closer than I would prefer...only leaves around 15% headroom.

Yeah definitely not 1000W, I put it just under 900w.

If you want to objectively, accurately and scientifically determine what PSU power is required for your Vid card and PC in both watts and 12v rail amps., the forum Utility link below will show you how easy it is to calculate this information and objectively determine which PSUs are quality built, reliable PSUs that can meet your needs. Be advised that the available 12v rail amps. is just as important as the total PSU wattage. You need both to be correct.

Are you sure about that? a GX750 would be questionable let alone a GX650.

Coolermaster has a decent 600 watt unit here

Of course GX 750 W offers as advantages having four power cables for video cards and more SATA power connectors, but it is only safe to run this new Cooler Master unit up to 450 W.

maybe an older sirfa/sirtec (prior to their split) design from an OCZ 1000w unit? like davcon stated, it should have no issue with the AMD6950 in CF...pretty good price for what you get.

They literally sold out between me making the decision to buy one, and me checking my bank account.
