  1. If this is the PSU you are referring to, it is a good unit. I have had the older XFX Black Edition 850W in my system for many years with no issues. I have been running different variations of SLI and CF with no issues.

    Hi - of those two, I'd go with the XFX, also you can save $$ if you
    want, as a quality 500w psu is more than enough for a sys with
    a 7870.

    The latest upgrades in both cpu's and gpu's have used less power than their predacessors, not more power. It may be safe to assume that future releases will use even less power. Besides, a psu is not a big deal to replace if need be. You can throw the old one on ebay and earn some of your cash back later... :sleep:
  6. i think XFX is winning... if i dont get any bad review about it...ill buy it tomorrow
  7. If it is recommended by JonnyGuru, you probably don't need much more confirmation: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story9&reid=216

    And a 650W PSU is not "too much" power supply. Your choice is solid.
  8. i think guru gives a good rate on this psu... ill w8 2 more days for more reviews..i want to be sure that ill make a good choice..
