Yeah... with the above screenshot in mind, this further consolidates my opinion that even the best PSU calculator out there (the one you used) is crap. 844W is ludicrous for your setup.

A 980X at 5.1GHz? Come on, man.

Also, you don't use 100% TDP or 100% load, you have to go by 90% unless you know what you're doing.

For sure you won't buy an insufficient PSU with that calculator. Other calculators (such as Newegg's) are even worse. I say you'll be fine on a good 650W unit. I'd get a SeaSonic X650 myself.

If I was you I would still get an AX850 because you may want to crossfire 2 6970's

point 1 taken, idk how high ill be able to get it, but it ll be around the 5+ ghz marks with what i will be picking up 1st week in february in ATL xD

100%tdp, just to make sure i have some headroom you know, should i settle for a smaller psu then the units i picked ? if so, which wattage would you recommend, keep in mind i want dual eps headers as a minimum on the psu

Forget the goddamn word headroom, christ if I had a nickel for every time someone said that as an excuse for wasting money with flimsy justification... I'd have a lot of spare change.

Don't touch the TDP settings on that calculator.

And you're not going to be able to do 5GHz 24/7 with a 980X. Try 4.5GHz max.

A quality 750W would run your system with Crossfire.

Either one is good unit and can't tell the different. With that says, would go for Ax850. Actually, a solid 750w such as 750tx should handle the job.

The Silverstone gold also looks like an enhance unit, as are the rest of the Silverstone units so far.
I voted for the XFX modular, but the Corsair AX and Seasonic X are both great units as well.
