HI, Im wanting to crossfire 2 sapphire 6850s- Using a phenonII X4 965 and this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have no clue of what kind of psu I will need and any suggestions will be appreciated.

Also, will I be needing to buy any extra cables?

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

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
