Just ordered some parts to build a computer! Can't wait, but I'm having trouble finding a $40-$60 PSU.
I want to, if possible, unlock the 6950 I get to a 6970.
Do you guys think this PSU is good

If not what do you guys recommend?

The ocz one looks good but the reviews don't look too good.

The PC P&C unit that he linked in the other link is a great one. That would be my choice out of the ones linked here.

Okay cool I think I'll go with the PC P&C one. Its 500W. Should it be able to hand me potentially unlocking the 6950 to a 6970 and maybe over locking my CPU a bit?

If you do both and OC to the hilt on both, it would be cutting a bit too close for me, but it should work just fine for just a CPU OC and the 6950 as it is.

Not sure you'll be able to unlock anyway (I think I remember reading somewhere that the newer 6950's CAN'T be unlocked), so that may not even be an issue.
