Newer video cards wont use more power as video card power draws have been almost the same for as long as i can recall

Think its more likely they will use less

And if you dont overclock anything 800 watts can power 3 video cards

Great answers! Will think about it. Thanks a lot smile.gif

Absolute best bang for the bucks right now.

A. XFX 850w Black Edition PS. Its a Seasonic KM3 unit. $115 shipped at NCIX (The Coolermaster V series PS are also KM3 units, but without hybrid fan mode switch)

B. EVGA Supernova G2 1000w PS: Its a SF Leadex unit. $149 shipped from NCIX again.

Both fantastic top tier power supplies........not going to find a better bang for the buck regardless of which way you go. Both are gold rated(both will deliver platinum spec at room temps)full modular units.
