What's your power supply budget? A good quality 650w psu from OCZ, Corsair, XFX, SEasonic, Antec, etc would be a good choice. I recommend something at least 80+ certified. m 0 l Related resources dose 700w psu power will handle gtx780ti? - Forum Older 700W PSU to power newer parts? - Forum last psu :D will this power up this build - Forum would a 700w psu power two gpus? - Forum 700W PSU neccessary for basic AMD system? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

That's not even got a basic 80+ certification. I can't believe you would even consider that. A cheapo 700w psu probably put's out about 500w, which would not be sufficient for Xfire. Which is why you don't buy cheap psu's. It's the most important component of your computer. TigerDirect has a Corsair TX650 V2 for $58 after rebate. 5yr warranty. m 0 l snorex1 June 25, 2012 9:08:34 PM this model has a 80+ certification tho hec Zephyr MX 750. m 0 l geekapproved a b ) Power supply June 25, 2012 9:29:11 PM I wouldn't use it but it's better than the other one. This one is only $60 after rebate and MUCH better. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... m 0 l snorex1 June 25, 2012 9:32:10 PM only issue i would have with that one is that im gonna cf 2 radeon 6870 and they require 2x 6pin pci plugs. m 0 l Best solution dudewitbow a b ) Power supply June 25, 2012 9:45:53 PM never cut around the corner with a psu, the psu tbh should be the first thing you picked out after you decided how many gpus you plan to run. at the real low end of pricing that will probably work, OCZ Fatal1ty 750w 100-15$=85$ 85$-25$ MIR= 65$ at the lowest i think Share snorex1 July 2, 2012 8:09:39 AM Best answer selected by snorex1. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
