  1. These are better PSUs for the same price:

    If you want to buy a PSU that can support two 6870s then you will have to up your budget to around £60.
    OCZ ZS Series 750W (£62 @ CCL Online / Dabs)

    If you are building a gaming system then you can save money by getting 8GB of RAM, as even 8 is overkill for gaming.
