I really need a good PSU for my Radeon 7870 that i will be getting and im not sure if my rocketfish 500 watt will make the cut, so i im buying a newer one for a little more headroom since the Radeon 7870 said it needs a "Minimum" of 500 watts

I was thinking about getting this one:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/CoolMax-CUL-Series-750W-ATX-1...


My budget is Max $65 dollars for a PSU.....that one is around 60 dollars after tax at Walmart, i do not want to buy from Newegg for obvious return policy reasons (Walmart you can practically return anything in any condition lol) Just in case the Product is faulty or something

So what do you guys think about this PSU unit? It seems to have a lot of head room even if in reality it run at a peak of 550-600 watts or somthing it still will do the job right? Or do you think i should reconsider? :p

Here are my 2 cents:
1- You don't need a 750w PSU (my system is fine with a 650)
2- Only go for Corsair/Seasonic/XFX PSUs, they give you over 5yr warranty depending on model and you can buy one of these with your eyes closed :p  (They are the best out there and actually made by Seasonic)

Personally I would not buy from Walmart, but it's your money.

Honestly a 500w PSU is easily enough. I crossfire 2 6950's on a 600w...

Walmart?

Newegg will get you a great PSU for under $65 that will run the 7870.
