A good 400-500W should be more than enough with room to upgrade that GPU if you ever decide to

It would be way overkill, even after getting the 7950.

80+ Bronze PSUs aren't inferior.  The 620W SeaSonic S12II or M12II (whichever one you have) is still a good unit.  For your old build, all that would be needed is a quality-made 400W power supply at the most.  SeaSonic has a 360W unit called The G Series.  Check it out.

 

I wouldn't touch a StealthXStream PSU even if I were paid to do it.  :)

Your Seasonic is a great PSU and would power any single GPU setup with ease regardless of cooling...

If your Seasonic PSU is modular, then it's the M12II, otherwise it's the S12II.

 

I don't know if that specific LEPA power supply is any good.  I mean, it might be:  I just don't know.  I know it's not on OCN's recommended PSU list, but I don't know if that means it's bad.

 

My fear of low quality PSUs is that they can make a system become unstable due to the unstable and "dirty" power delivery.  If this PSU falls into that category, then it would end up being a headache.  Still, I don't know where it stands - it might be ok, or it might not.

 

Are you trying to keep it under like $50 or so?

 

Edit:  Here's a PSU that is on OCN's recommended PSU list:

 

450W Antec VP450 for $39.99 at Micro Center

 

 

Edit 2:  I just noticed that it's not on the recommended list.

I run Crossfire on my Antec HCG 620W so he should be more than fine with a single card with 620W.

A good 550W power supply would be enough for a system that has two 7950s in it.  ;)
