Enough watts for crossfire?

i currently have:
AMD FX4100(plan on overclocking)
gigabyte radeon hd6850
g.skill 8gb 1600 ddr3 ram
WD caviar green 1tb

More about enough watts crossfire
  1. A decent branded 650W should be fine. make sure it has 4x PCIe power plugs
  2. other than corsair, what are some good brands?

    This is the cheapest one that would be safe http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371031
  7. ok, I'll look into this one. Thanks!
  8. +1 to the Neo Eco as being sufficient...assuming that the HD6850 only requires one 6-pin PCIe power connector and that is the case for most stock clocked 6850s. Even Gigabyte's OCed Windforce HD 6850 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125353 - only requires one 6-pin so the Neo Eco is good to go and good quality.
