You have no need for a different PSU. If you'd like to buy one, then by all means do, but there's no need for it. The max your system should pull at the wall is ~600W.

Thank you-someone got it right!
No need for more watts-650w could run that rig fine.If yours is old though expect it to be less powerful than new.If you need a PSU rec. look no further than here-

I'm currently running a toughpower 750w modular PSU. Would I need to upgrade? What would you recommend? 850w? (Modular is a must. My wires are very pretty!)

You're fine.
Buy another 6970 - the exact same as what you have.
Corssfire and kick some butt.

Welp, I went ahead and crossfired without the new PSU, and so far everything is more than stable. Appreciate all of the input from you guys.

Let's keep things on topic guys.

Your machine won't use more than what a good 650w PSU can put out. Your current TP750 is enough. It's not a good unit by any means, but it is enough. If you want to upgrade it, go for it. But look into 650-750w units that are on the recommended list here in the PSU section.

6900 series crossfire each other from what i have read and the 6800 series crossfire each other as well, so i see why either way it wouldn't work... as well most of the unlocked 6950 cards from all the stuff i have seen and read perform the same
