    Hi - where are you located? partpicker looks like US merchants, but the VS
    series of PSU's aren't for the US. If you are in an area where your electr
    current from the wall is 220-240v, I would go with the vs650.

    Yes, the vs 650. A little more power than you need, but there's no
    harm in that. realhardtech suggests a quality 550w PSU for
    a system with one 7970.
