Hey guys, ive been looking around for deals on some parts for my gaming rig since its black november on newegg. And I saw this power supply here ---> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Do you think it could run my pc, I plan on crossfire later and adding a h60 to overclock the cpu. So I really want a power supply that can handle that.

My specs...

amd phenom 2 x4 965BE
xfx radeon 7850 2gb (planning on xfire later)
8gb of 1600 ddr3 ram
500gb 7200rpm hdd
msi am3+ amd970 mobo
lite on dvd drive

Yes that psu can handle 2 7850 2GB crossfire, but your current cpu will bottleneck the crossfire setup.

Would it still bottleneck when its overclocked? I was planning on getting the h60 with the addition of the extra 7850 so I could overclock and prevent a bottleneck.

h60 just waste the money..
you can get coolermaster cm 212 evo with slightly better performance at the half price..

Yes, that's good psu, you can crossfiring it without worry...
And yes too, your cpu will make some slight bottleneck to your dual card configuration especially the processor bound game..

Overclock your cpu will help, at 4.1- 4.2Ghz it will give you noticeable improvement over stock clock..
and it will give your system breath until next year..

Alright I guess my CPU will have to be my first upgrade. Thanks though, I just ordered the PSU.
