Hi - realhardtech suggests a quality 550w (min 30a on +12vrail) unit for a sys
with a 7970. The cx600 is more than ample.

However, if you have a system with a 7970 you might want to step up from
budget/opening price point(cx) series. I'll list some alternatives to consider:

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb... nets to $55

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... nets to $70 - 650w enthusiast series

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... nets to $80 - 650w

listed two 650w units(more than you need) as the price/perf deals are very good.
