  1. Is that a joke? Or did you mean you have 2-3 7970s?

    It is plenty and will be able to run two of your cards in Crossfire. Although it is a CM it gets very good reviews http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-Silent-Pro-M-850-W-Power-Supply-Review/810/10

    And how did you know he doesn't plan on adding another one or two later? Psychic abilities? It's called looking ahead and not being the one that ends up having to buy another psu down the road because you didn't but a powerful enough one to begin with.

    Yes, that's what I'm hinting at, obviously.

    Your answer is quite rude. Doing searches to find out about power supplies was confusing so I thought I would ask.
