Corsair CX 750 , the Builders Series, considered entry-level, budget grade

Notice the price difference between it and that thing you linked to
Lower than junk quality won't get any reccomendations ( a 750 watt psu with 4 x sata and 1 x 6 pin ? :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  )

+1 The above on both counts. Those PSUs are generic and are of very poor quality. Don't let the misleading wattage ratings and product descriptoins fool you. If you see a PSU with such a high wattage for that cheap, the rule of thumb is to AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Trust me, you'll be saving lots of time, money and hassle in the long term.

you would have a difficult time running a single AMD 7870 off that unit, let alone two. Delluser linked a good budget unit that will do the job.

Hi :) 

I buy from Overclockers sometimes for my shops...

Some is good stuff.

Some of their unbranded stuff is crap....

Want to guess which category that so called Swift Psu falls into ?

Swift to blow your motherboard as a guess....

DON'T buy it :) 

All the best Brett :)
