You link doesn't work.

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.

never used apevia--cant find many reviews of them--which i take as it not being quality enough to merit

reviews

i always go for a quality psu--even if it costs more

your whole pc relies on it--a cheap psu could take out that nice new fx-8120 or gpu or other components if it

goes wonky

Zephyr and Apevia are probably some of the worst psu's ever. 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.

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
