    Should have enough power for upgrades and is decently priced
  2. On Second thought, can you List your whole build? I want to check your computer specs on a couple calculators to see what you are running at
  3. also if you just want to see yourself check out this calculator for PSU power

    Nope the Corsair includes the required pci-e 6pins required to power 2x6850's.
    2X6870 = requires 4xPCI-E 6pins the Corsair TXV2 only supplies 2 = although your cards includes the molex adapters = would be fine.
    Psu that includes all necessary 6 pins without the need for adapters.
    XFX Core Edition PRO650W = supplied with 2 x 6-Pin, 2 x 6+2-Pin
