Thanks for the info! Decided to go with the XFX 550 Core Edition (there's a sweet deal going on with a $25 rebate).

Speaking of PSU's

I'm Thinking of buying a 600WGold/Platinum Certified PSU ,
Been choosing between
Seasoonic X-650
FSP CM Aurum 92+ 650
Antec Earthwatts Platinum 650

What would you recommend between these 3 PSU's

TIA! smile.gif

The Earthwatts Platinum and the FSP Aurum 92+ is the same unit but voltage regulation is not very good, So that leaves only the Seasonic X

Unless you there are other units you can find?

The Seasonic SS660 xp2 Platinum is on sale right now for $135 plus a $15 rebate at Newegg. I use this unit to power my FX 8350 @ 4.8 X-Fire 7870/r9 270x devils and 9 fans plus multiple led lights and have plenty of power. Very stable power and never hear it.

I don't think your card allows voltage control. So whatever you can get with raising the power limit.

I can't comment on that. It may work with a modded bios. I haven't messed with it myself.
