So, will a Radeon HD 6950 or 6970 work with this PSU without problems? I know the wattage is enough, but does it have enough amps? I do not plan to CF.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My build:

AMD Phenom II x4 970
8 GB (2 x 4) DDR3 RAM
6950 OR 6970
1 DVD/CD drive
ASUS m5a97 motherboard

Thanks

P.S. I know this is a repost but I wasn't sure which section to put it in, as it is about both power supply and graphics card. D:

After posting in like 10 different forums, about 20 different threads, you are the first one to tell me that is a crappy PSU.

Anyways, @the guy who mentioned the new power supply, isn't this one better? :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's $5 more than my current one and its 620w. Also it has 48A.

Since you guys say its not that good, is the 620w posted above better/good?

Also, do you mean that the QUALITY isnt good, or its just not good for a 6950/70?

For those that are saying that the Antec NEO ECO 520C isn't a good PSU maybe its time that you actually read some reputable reviews before making the comment.

The Antec NEO ECO 520C uses Seasonic as its OEM. It is based on exactly the same design as the Seasonic S12 II Bronze 520W which gets excellent reviews by Harware Secrets and jonnyGURU.com.

Just to make you aware i have pretty much the same set up as you (processor and mob but i have 10 gig ram ) and once i installed a 6950 my 550w powersupply died after 2 weeks . so i would advise at least 600w.

Well I'm not one to judge but I've never heard of it and maybe yours didn't work because it was a bad quality PSU. Anyways, I've bought a Seasonic M12II 620w PSU with two 24A 12V rails for extra headroom. I heard it could handle any single graphics card out right now and it's modular so that's a bonus.

EVO LABS seems to be a UK only brand.

It's not a reputable trusted name brand. It falls into that generic, low quality, avoid at all cost category.

Will the new PSU I bought (Look at my above post) be enough for a 6970, or possibly even a 6990? I want some headroom for everything lol.

The Seasonic M12II 620w (M12II-620 Bronze), with its +12 Volt continuous current rating of 48 Amps and with one 6 pin and one 6+2 pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than enough to power a system with a single Radeon HD 6970.

It's only a midrange (i.e. in terms of power capacity) power supply that doesn't have the two 8 pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors that are required by the Radeon HD 6990. It's not meant for powering multiple GPU systems.

The Seasonic M12II 620w (M12II-620 Bronze) only has a single +12 Volt rail despite what is shown on the power supply's label. There is no OCP on each of those 24A "rails" which just confirms that it is a single rail design.
