I will be switching to CF 6870's sometime soon and my current PSU is pretty bad. I want something under $100 that will run the 2 6870's for me and I heard these two PSU's mentioned a lot.

Just to clarify once again, with 2 6870's as well as everything else in my rig (I have like 8 case fans installed) 650W should be enough right?

Really can't go wrong with either of those.

Personally, I prefer the Corsair one, hence my current PSU.

Will handle HD 6870 CF like a dream.

Neither. Get a TX650 v2 for the same price as the old one. 80+ Bronze and a better composition.

Edit: And yes, 650W is way more than enough.

Is the 650W pretty accurate? Also, how many 8 pin connectors does it have? I need 4 8 pin connectors since each 6870 has 2 inputs.

My PSU right now is 700W but it actually only pushes like 550W... Such a horrible PSU. I need a new one fast.

Now that you mention it, how do I check to see if mine is V2 or not?

It's only 4 months old.

Get the v2 Corsair as mentioned as it has Seasonic internals.

There is actually a cheaper 650W Earthwatt PSU:

The Earthwatt is a decent budget unit, but I believe internals are made by Delta. The Corsair is simply just better.

Is this the one you are talking about?

That's it. Noticed you're in Mt View...that's pretty close by me

Amazon is a good place to shop for Cali people...no ship or tax at the A.

Wow, Sunnyvale huh. I actually live right next to the Sunnyvale/MV border, on El Camino. I go to Los Altos High School though. I go to the Sunnyvale Fry's Electronics every week though since the Palo Alto one is horrendous .

Will order the one from Amazon when I get back from vacation. Thanks for the help!
