This is where I am at right now. Thanks for the help and suggestions. I am still looking for a good PSU. I don't know how "big" a one that I need. Somebody (with experience) just tell me which one I should get for this set-up.

Would like to order this in the next week.

Thanks for all the help!


EDIT: This is the one that has been suggested and for 70$ it sounds like a good deal.

Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Bronze W0382RU ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Does everyone agree with this?

Get the Corsair HX750, the TR2 RX 750 should be avoided, check some reviews.

Really like the looks of the Corsair HX750. . not a big fan of the price, but if that is the best 750w then that is what I will go with.

I assume that 750w is big enough? I was going to get a 600w, but then I went for the 7970 instead of the 7950 and read that I better get at least a 750w.
