It seems like you could easily get away with a Corsair 750TX power supply, and even still have room to add another 4890 for crossfire down the road. The closer loaded a psu is to it's limit the better the efficiency it runs at.
Yes but the shorter its life. And I would rather have the True, It's just as good.

lol the closer a psu is to its max is usually and pretty much always worse efficiency you usually get the best efficeiency at about 70-80 percent load

If you are going to lap the Heatsink, then get the TRUE, but if you are not, get the Megahalems. Why? Because the Megahalem is pretty much flat already. The TRUE isn't.

I have a CM V8 cooler that I pulled out after my last build. I'll give it to you for 45 if you pay the shipping.. (I'm in Canada).

I don't think it's appropriate to post it here.

From a cable management point of view, don't get the TX750. I have that PSU and a storm scout. There's lots of wires. Oh, and be sure to check out the storm scout club if you haven't already done so!

TRUE's only nearly as good if it's lapped and bolt modded.

Bolt Modded? On another note one of my friends gave me a CM V8 so will that be any good on the Phenom or even work with it for that matter?
