with all the respect there,i would say you lost your mind!that psu won't handle 2 7950's...you have cash for such gpu's but you are so scarce with the psu?this my cost you alot,when that crap psu will die taking some components along!stop hanging around and buy a decent psu!depending on yous specs/overclocking..a corsair 750w will do the job...if you want to overclock...i would go in a 850-900w area from a branded psu...stop buying craps man!you will be sorry later!

I dont buy craps m8. Where did you get that from? I buy xfx psu's and corsair psu's. I was just wondering if it was any good. Someone told me that ezcool was reputable and i seen the low price and straight away thought that it was too good to be true but its always good to ask.

I've read some posts here and no one recommends that Power Supply. I couldn't find a review of that product so don't buy it. Buy from Seasonic, Corsair, PC P&C or XFX.

Hi - From a Toms Hardware article:

How do you identify a bad power supply before buying it?

Extremely high wattage claims at a comparatively very low price are suspicious. There are simply no decent 750 W power supplies for $50. For every product class based on performance and features, there must be a minimum price. When a product is significantly below that price, be cautious. You can get a "400 W PSU" for $20, and such fire hazards are installed in budget PCs every day by unscrupulous companies that know exactly the risk they're handing off to buyers.
Check the specifications. For example, if a PSU claims high performance on the 3.3 and 5 V rails while the 12 V rail numbers are low, then you know something is wrong.
The manufacturer does not specify any combined maximum performance, but instead only shows the maximum load for each rail separately. This is done without specifying how much real power would be available if all rails are used at the same time. Avoid PSUs without this information.
Be careful with juicy marketing expressions and commercial lingo: Super, Extreme, Gaming, Combat, etc. Using superlatives to describe something quite normal should arouse suspicion and have you double-check specification details.
Passive rather than active Power Factor Correction (PFC) leads to lower power efficiency.
Very few or short power connectors and cables might be an issue. A 750 W PSU usually has four PCIe connectors for graphics cards (2 x 6-pin and 2 x 6+2-pin), so think twice if a model only offers two (or at least consider your upgrade options).
With cheap PSUs, the quality of the cable insulation may be poor, or the cables may not be insulated at all. The power cable grommet may also be insufficiently padded.
Be careful if there are few or no indications of protection circuitry. If the PSU specification only says OPP (overload protection) or perhaps SCP (short circuit protection), this points towards a normal fuse. If the specification also says OVP (overvoltage protection), this probably means that it is equipped with a simple metal oxide variable resistor. These security measures by themselves are absolutely insufficient and cannot replace any kind of digital safety chip.
