Hello guys, I have an issue picking PSUs and I would like you to help me.
I live far away on a region where hardware is expensive and you can only find with a couple of brands.

The system I am trying to build involves:

FX 6300 CPU (if I can get it shipped)
Asus M5a970 R2.0 mobo
1tb WD blue HHDD
Kingston 1600mhz hyper x 2x4gb ram
Thermaltake V4 case
Sapphire 7770 ghz edition
LG DvD burner
Sandisk Extreme 64gb SSD (not confirmed yet)

Some day, I would like to be able to perform Crossfire, If I got the needs for more power (and the money).

Which of these PSU's will fill my needs?
This is what I can get on this lands. Coolermaster, Thermaltake and Sentey. No corsair, or antec, or seasonic, just this 3 brands. The power supplies I can find and afford are:

Coolermaster 600W Extreme power plus.

Thermaltake TR2 600W (non 80 plus version)

Sentey ERP 650W

Sentey BRP 700W


There are Better ones like Coolermaster silent pro 700W, Thermaltake 700W, and 750 ERP sentey, but they don't fit on my budget. So please tell me if one of the PSUs I listed above are fit, and If someday i could accomplish a crossfire adding another 7770.

Btw, don't try to get me to a 7850 or something, the crossfire I talked about would be in case of a far away future where I get more money, and want more graphics power.

Thanks for your help!

Hi - Of those 4 listed, the 2 Sentey models are your best bet. There
isn't a review of them and the brp 700 is real new, but Coolermaster
Extreme series have been lousy in the past, and a lot of TT TR2's
have also been mediocre/weak.

Sentey is using a quality eom (Superflower)
so choose the one that's least expensive as they are more than
you need for a sys with a 7770 (and are CF capable)

Get the Sentey 700W as long as it has the 80-plus rating and the right number of plugs to crossfire 2 7770's (2 x 6-pins)
