The same applies to the equivalent Antec Neo Eco 620W. Even if it had three though, that's still one short of what two 5850s need
look at the link I supplied above. At phone at moment will check it again on pc although the table looks all funky it 3 but its the hybrid model 620c. Though the same unit you can just double check

I did look at the link, twice even, I don't see what you're referring to

sorry its the 620gm that version. Your right it has a 2 + 6 pin and the 6 pin. Which is enough for 2 5850s needing 2 x 6 pins ain't it?

The wattage is enough, but a pair of 5850s would require a total of four 6-pin connectors. Admittedly you can just use an adapter to convert two Molex connectors to one PCIe connector, but it's a solution a lot of people don't like. Plus a 600+W PSU without 4 PCIe connectors these days is kind of a pity

I ran a pair of 5850s on this for a while. Eventually sold the 2nd one, didnt need the power at the time.

Thanks for the opinions guys! I might go with the 750w variant in case I want to run four of them down the road. The TPN-650 definitely sounds sufficient for three though. I don't mind running adapters at all if it saves money.

Overclocking may be an option, I'm just not sure that I have the time for it, to overclock and test for stability, etc. Seems like every time I overclock something and think it is stable, it ends up crashing a week or two later.

OP, just get the TPN-650W.
Hmm. I think you're getting stuff mixed up. The TX650V2 is a very good unit, you're thinking of the older "V1" unit. (Read the TX750V2 review at JG for comparison). The V2 is Seasonic based (later V1 units were CWT), has DC-DC conversion and very good ripple suppression. The only thing it doesn't have is the modularity of the Antec.

If you haven't purchased anything yet. The Topower TOP-800WS 800w is a solid value in the under $100 market.

The two downsides are that it's non-modular and only has a 1 year warranty.

The only reason I suggest this is the TPN-750 is out of stock on the Egg right now.

Dang, that does look nice!

Going to hold off on a purchase for now... I figured out that I have enough rigs around the house to run all the cards I have if I finagle things around...

HTPC = 4650
Desktop = 5870
Server = 5870
Random parts laying around to make a Phenom X4 rig = 5770

We'll see how it goes...

But it doesn't hold candle to the TP-650... The TX650 has very average minor v regulation, and pretty high ripple. And it's an old platform, too. I've never seen OklahomaWolf review the TX650 either.
