Well supposedly according to newegg and what not this PSU puts out a steady 800W. Guess it's actually able to do higher than what the box says? But the reason for a new psu is that I'm giving this rig to my father and I want to go for a modular psu since this one isn't. And according to newegg psu calculator two 6970 require 932 where 2 6950 require about 803.
I at least want to be able to power 2 cards that way if the 79xx cards come out and are infact better I can upgrade to those and not worry bout a psu since they supposedly wont need as much power due to architecture designs
