lian li a70f is a little bigger than a70f...(u can compare the size at newegg) & will easily fit a hd6990

well,
1000watt is also a good option,
some of the best 1000watt psu are:
1>silverstone strider gold 1000
2>corsair hx1000
3>corsair tx950 (much cheaper than option than 1,2 but its an extremely capable psu)

There are a number of tools available online that will help with English spelling and grammar, so please make use of them if this is a matter of simply not being aware of the mistakes

In any case, though, please do make a concerted effort in the future to adhere to the Terms you agreed to when you signed up for the forums regarding using proper English.

Thank You,
OCN Moderation Staff



As some others have pointed out above, the answer is "No"

You don't need nearly that much extra power for OC'ing headroom. Even w/large overvolts and overclocks, it's unlikely you'd ever add more than about 20% to your overall power consumption vs. stock. And with everything at stock, you could probably run your proposed rig on a good 650W unit, believe it or not.





Thanks Rocker. Yes, I actually said HCP 1200W is a fine, fine unit. It's just way more than is necessary for this build, even including juice for an extra 6970 if the OP were ever to add one.

I was in a hurry so I made some mistakes in one of my previous post,
but u can see my other posts,I havent made any sort of spelling or grammartical mistake......yeah I'm from a non-native english speaking country but....I have proper english sences.....better u dont say like this,first check my other posts

I apologize for doing this, but I have to agree with him. However, it's not for the sake of the rules, but for everyone's sake - including yours. I think the biggest thing now is to stop typing "u" instead of "you" (or "ur"). After that, just put more effort into your posts, such as using an apostrophe for contractions like "haven't" instead of "havent".

The benefit for you is that when you give advice you are absolutely 100.00% sure of, people will be more likely to take you at your word. Can you imagine me giving advice to someone and giving them a post with a bunch of "u"s, "ur"s, and other unnecessary abbreviations? They probably wouldn't give my post any real consideration.

The benefit for everyone else is that it's easier to read a post that is typed out professionally like I'm doing here instead of using a bunch of abbreviations and leaving out apostrophes when they're needed.

The more effort you put into the quality of your posts, the greater the chances are that people will take you seriously - especially if your advice is spot-on! It shows that you care.

Don't get me wrong; I absolutely respect and understand that it's more difficult because English is a second language. However, you're demonstrating excellent knowledge of English, and so I believe that it's fair to expect better of you.

Looking through your posts it appears as if your keyboard doesn't have a period key. Ending every sentence with an ellipse is not proper English, nor proper grammar in any language.

Thanks for all of your help guys. I've decided to hold off on this build until the ATI HD 7xxx GPUs and Ivy Bridge/Sandy Bridge EE CPUs come out.
