I agree with Obsidian on the Capstone 650, I almost pulled the trigger on it a little while ago, but found this in the nick of time,
You shud def consider (offer expires tomorrow 9/23)

^ I agree. If you are willing to spend $100 on an 80+ Gold Rosewill Capstone then for the same price the Seasonic X 650 is probably a better unit.

Both are great units. The Rosewill is made by Superflower and the Seasonic is of course made by Seasonic. Both supply 54 amps for 648 watts on the 12v rail and both have 5 year warranties. The Seasonic is fully modular though so for the same price is in my opinion the better buy.

Either are plenty of power to add a second HD 6870.
