It's a solid PSU, just not modular. It will handle your system with no problems. thumb.gif

Ahh, yes. I forgot that it was modular, except for the 24pin and cpu connectors tongue.gif
The HX850 I worked with was Silver rated.

If you want to add 2 or more PSUs :

if i was going to run 2 psu i would probably get a Antec HCP Platinum series psu's which have an oc link that allows you connect 2 psu's togetther with out the need for an adapter which makes cable management better and just looks better then using an adapter smile.gif

how ever sense you already have a psu you can get an adapter that allows you connect 2 or more psu's to your setup

Its made by CWT, its not the best that corsair has to offer. Would go with the CMPSU-850TXV2 or the HX650 (OEM is Seasonic) if you want the corsair brand

this ^ the HX-850 is kinda over priced for what it is if you hadn't got in for $70 it wouldn't be really worth it

Mine is the HX seires Professional 850 watt.Whatever that means but iam pretty sure this isn't a Garbege psu ( at least I hope not ) So was it a good deal at $70 bucks or no? Only reason iam asking about running 2 power supplys is if I decide to go crossfire or Sli and need more power, The cpu I have ( fx 9370 ) is very power hungry so iam kinda scared that's why iam not taking any chances. The cards will either be 290x x 2 or hopefully something like Gtx 680x2, 780 ti x 2 is the goal but iam not sure I can swing that just yet. Maybe start with 1 card and work my way up? But for 1 Gpu I should be ok with 850 watts right>?

Good deal for 70 bucks, definitely not garbage.

Goes for 150usd on newegg:
