I've these choices in my budget, which one should i get?-
1. Corsair TX650
2. Corsair TX750
3. Corsair TX850

My Processor is of 125w. All the three power supplies comes also with a 'V2' model. So should i go with the V2 model or the simple model.??

Are you running two 6950s.
This may sound silly but what is Maximum Pottent?

V2 model means that its version 2 of the same psu. This means it has been upgraded in one way or another and on newegg, V2 and normals are the same price, so there is no reason notr to go with a V2.

A 650w Corsair will run 1 6950 without a problem. If you want the option to xfire in the future, however, get a 850W

I'd go with one of the higher wattage's 850 and up, also look for one that's 80+ certified silver or gold with a 5 year warranty (future proof for Crossfire or SLI).
Just remember a PSU is as important a buy as your mobo and should last you through more up grades.
