Sorry for the confusion.
You got the 7970 for free?!?! Dude! lol Nice! :)
If you already have a PSU, then you can even get the 520W Antec NEO ECO (it does not come with a power cable):
It's $54.99 + $1.99 shipping before the $10 promo code of "CollegeSave10"
The reason I'm recommending it is that I just remembered this thread:
The 520W NEO ECO is a Seasonic S12II which is a good thing! It's a little better than the 530W Rosewill Green Series in terms of quality and also the quality of the power delivery. I just realized that I forgot to mention that the Rosewill Green Series doesn't come with a power cable either. That's what makes these PSUs "green" (which is a little bit stupid since it's just a power cable, but hey, it is less waste).
Edit: if spending $79.99 on a PSU isn't a problem, then I'd go for that 550W modular Rosewill CAPSTONE because the PSU Rosewill used to create this PSU should have a much higher price. I mean, it's a top-of-the-line modular PSU. In my opinion, Rosewill is getting ripped off. Although, they are a Newegg house brand, so I suppose that they can get away with this due to all of the money they make by just being Newegg. lol
This is about what it should cost: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817121080 $149.99 + $10.72 shipping
It's either that, or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151098 for $124.99 + $10.72 shipping
These 2 power supplies are not any better than the modular Rosewill CAPSTONE, but yet they cost much more. Again, I think that this is because Rosewill doesn't have to worry about making much money due to being a Newegg house brand.
