About to go crossfire and buy another Powercolor radeon 6850, so wondering if this PSU is good enough to run my system.

http://www.super-flower.com.tw/products_detail.php?clas...

It's 650w which should suffice, and has 2x 6pin connectors to the graphics card which i think i need because i go Crossfire.
And it also has 20+4 pins to the motherboard and I atleast think that my motherboard needs that.

CPU= AMD phenom II x4 955BE

Motherboard= http://www.msi.com/product/mb/870A-G54.html

4 GB ram (2x2 2gb)

Yes this power supply will run your system. I'm surprised superflower is still in business; I haven't seen any venders in the usa sell them for years. I used one for about six months with no problems, but if you can find a corsair or antec for a similar price, I would get one of those brands instead.

Actually Super Flower has distinguished itself in recent years as a very good OEM for brands like NZXT, Kingwin and Rosewill and they make some very good to excellent units.

Anandtech is a great site but they are not the best power supply reviewers. They did like this power supply though.

It looks like a great power supply OP. It will be fine with 2 x HD 6850s.

O1die they have a very large product line.

I would buy another superflower if newegg or frys had them. Too bad they don't.

Thanks for great answers, I would go for Corsair/Antec of course, but can't really find any 650w in that price range where I live so I'll just go with the Super Flower.
