The GS600 is plenty for 6870 CFX.

You don't need a new PSU. What makes you think that you do?

i just thought that it won't be able to handle xfire 6870. Also i'll be crossfiring with a 6850
So should i just simply go and grab a 6850 or
wait and buy a new PSU first and then a month later a 6850..

Help me out as i'm not able to make out anything

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151100 850w

TBH..depending on what your cpu is/how high it's clocked..what you have may be enough...
2 6870s would pull what..about 340w? max?

I'm confused as to what you're ultimately going to have in the PC, but your current Corsair GS600 can handle a pair of 6870s easily, obviously it can also handle a pair of 6850s or a mix of 6870+6850. So please don't waste money on a new PSU.

Pretty much this, you don't need anything more than what you have for 6870 crossfire.

look through those, and you'll see that you even have a bit of OC headroom with your current psu.

6879 Or 6850 have a low TDP. You don't need a new psu.
