This is my current build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/r4Mf
Everything has been ordered except the video card and the PSU. I am most likely going to get a radeon 7950 (possibly 7970) and may crossfire it eventually but not soon.
How many watts do I need and could you recommend one?
Hi - There's quite a big diff in power consumption between these 2 cards:
7950 - Avg game power usage = 288w & up tot sys
7970 - Avg game power usage = 352w & up tot sys
So, If you're going with 2 7950's then you need a quality 650w unit
and 2 7970's would require 750 or more w
remember - you need a psu with 4 pci-e connectors
