hi im getting either a 7850 or a 7870 for xmas of my rents( i think they are getting me the asus radeon 7850 but im not sure they wont tell me i just sent them a load of links for 7870's and 7850's) and i was just wondering if a 650watt psu is anuff to cover this (plus i already have an amd quad core 3.4ghz,2x4gb sticks of ram, 2 harddrives, arctic cooler pro 13 and 2 case fans) thanks :)  cant really afford more then a 650 watt so i hope this is ok. the one iv picked for my price range is http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fractal-Design-Integra-Efficien... cant afford any more then £60 . is the psu iv gone for also a reliable make? thanks guys :)

The 650w OCZ power supply will be quite adequate for your system.

Even a quality 500w power supply will be better than a 800w generic brand power supply, just for future knowledge.

I would go with Seasonic. Very good psus. A 520w model will work just fine, but they do have an affordable 620w model too.
