NEW PSU help
is this psu any good its 70$ atm at newegg i will be using 2 7970 vapor x cf with it want something cheap under 120$ with 850w+ atm only using 1 7970 i5 oc to 4.8 and i'm using a watt meter and it shows max watt 580 when running prime 95 and furmark
No. It got a Fail at HardOCP, though it did stay inside the ATX spec (barely).
I would recommend lower wattage but higher quality. XFX Core Edition 850W or Corsair TX850M are cheaper as well as higher quality (and modular in the latter case).
If your watt meter is showing 580W, I'm guessing you also have a monitor and printer (possibly more periferals) running through it (or it's broken). This will be all you need for a CrossFireX setup: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-750 although I could find no reviews for the 750W unit, the 650W unit is well recieved and reviewed here http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Rosewill-HIVE-650-W-Power-Supply-Review/1460
Hope it helps
