  1. Woah, you have the same build as me. I would recommend you get a 750 Watt PSU.

    $109 and a mail in rebate.

    Hi - There is no harm in a 750w psu, except it's more
    expensive up front. You system according to realhardtechX
    with a single 7850 requires only a quality 450w unit.

    Here's some to consider:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182066 nets to $64

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 nets to $30

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028 nets to $62

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703036 nets to $90

    Thats true indeed. But if you want something that'll be very powerful for the future if you want to upgrade or something and you want to spend that $100, then you can go for that PSU. Plus its $80 after MIR.:)

    Tom did make some good points though, you dont really need all that power.
  4. ANY decent make 500 would do...
