Save me from this expensive red travesty by telling me about a cheaper/better PSU to use with crossfire.

PCP&C 750 is a top line PSU. You get what you pay for. What CF are you going to have? Take a look at the $99 Corsair 650tx or Corsair 750tx depending on what you have.

Right now I'm just thinking that I'll go with 1 3870, but I want to be able to upgrade to the next generation soon, either crossfire between 2 generations or just say screw it and go with another 3870 when they come down in price.

I also want to be able to run 4 120's and 4 80's (not likely I'll go that high but possible) and I don't know how many extra fan plugs typically come with power supplies.

(EDIT)
And I was mostly joking with the travesty bit, I don't mind the PSU... I just worry that it may not be enough for upgradeability. Wasn't sure if there was an 850 out there without the crossfire "seal of approval" that is still good for crossfire and is around the same price.

Even with two 3870's a 750W would be enough.

And the Crossfire "seal of approval" doesn't really mean much (sorry ATI, nothing personal). You just don't see it very often because part of the SLI license agreement is that the SLI logo not appear on the same box, webpage, marketing material, etc. as a Crossfire logo. Since Nvidia has greater market share, you're going to see a lot more SLI logos. And since they can't legally display that logo with a Crossfire logo, you'll not see both.

(Edited out bad choice)

New better choice: Zalman 850 189.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817379007

Well now I have to edit again: This modular Antec truepower 1000w is 189.99 after MIR.

Not that good as DA and OP series but it is still a solid PSU at great price.


Edit: Didn't know you change to Zalman 850. That text refers to SILVERSTONE ST85ZF. For $20 more, I may go for Silverstone DA850 or DA750. Also, can't go wrong with PCP&C 750.

Just get the PC Power & Cooling S75QB 750W with 60a on one rail. You can't go wrong. Just because it doen't say Xfire doesn't mean it doesn't have the power. Comes with 4x6 pin just in case you do decide in the future to add another card.

Yeah sorry it's early in the morning and I kept editing cause I thought no-one was around.

That antec truepower 1000w for 189.99 after MIR seems to me to be a killer deal:
