You don't need a 750W PSU for Crossfire 6950/6970s...

2x200W for 6950CF + any overvolt

up to 125W CPU + its OC

2 DVD burners, 2 HDDs, fans, maybe watercooling, anything extra

and plus I wouldn't want it working close to its upper limit all the time

Of course I'm a noob, but I wouldn't want any thing less than 700W, I'd rather pay the extra money

Trust me when I say that you'll never top 550WDC draw, even when running LinX and Furmark at the same time. Including overclocks. In normal gaming, you'll see 400-500W, and idle at the desktop will be 200W.


If you really, really pushed all your overclocks with insane voltage you might get 600W when stress testing.

Couple of things to address:
GPU power consumption never scales 100% when you add cards. The 6950 is more like a 170W card at the most, and two cards would draw less than ~320W at the most, and that's in Furmark, meaning you'd never see that kind of power consumption in a normal gaming situation.

Next, consider that in testing with Furmark, various reviews show that a complete system with overclocked CPU and a pair of 6950s draws 500W from the wall, meaning 425W from a 85% efficient PSU. There's no overclock you could do without extreme cooling that would bring that figure close to the limits of a good 650W PSU. And even then, there is nothing wrong with running a good PSU at 100%. A good PSU is rated to run 24/7 at 100% of its capacity, no less.

One fella wrote this for the Seasonic X650W 80+gold

"I already had it powering a 4ghz overclocked/overvolted PhenomII 955, 2x radeon 5850's overclocked and overvolted, 2ssd's, 4hdd's and about 8 case/cpu fans.
I should have been getting close to the 600-650w as my system was, but I added a gts 450 card for physx and folding use. With all the gpu's and the cpu folding, every processor is near 100% utilized. I don't have to turn the heat on in the winter, the computer is my heat pump. The fan on the PSU turns on but i never hear it over the other fans. I'm guessing i'm running near 700w off the PSU and it just doesn't care. If i kill it soon, it will have served well, but I doubt it will."

that sounds impressive, but I don't want to be close to its upper limit all the time

EDIT:actually thats reg. $180, more than I want to spend anyway
