Hi,

I am planning to buy this PSU.

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650M 650W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi Modular High Performance Power Supply.

I am planning to crossfire 2 HD 7850 OC Sapphire version , would this be sufficient ?
I would like some reviews if possible about this PSU if any one had already used it.

I have been hearing good things about corsair but if I were to save a bit of $
would the following ones be equally good since I am looking for a fully modular psu?

Does the video card have one or two PCI power connectors? If it has two, then you need a power supply with a total of four PCIE power connectors. I don't think any of the ones yuou've chosen have that. I think you need to go to 750W to get it.

Just rechecked it ! Sapphire HD 7850 OC Edition 2GB has a single six pin power connector equates to a 130W tdp . I think you are referring to 7870. I guess I should be good with the corsair 650 then ?
