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.
are you speaking of watercooling ? i will be way beyond that

so technicly would i be able to CF my 6970 with a 850w unit you think ?

now that someone brought it up

thx in advance

Easily... as was said, you'd be fine on 750W.

hmm, it ll be a while till i crossfire tho, so i suppose i should switch the units to 750w ones ?

the main reason im switching my tx to a different one is the modular and dual eps connectors...

I voted for the 850AX because that's the direction I'm personally leaning towards. I also like the SILVERSTONE Strider Gold ST85F-G. The prices are the same on newegg and they're both excellent quality (from what I've heard/read). Also according to newegg, the corsair carries a much longer 7 year limited warranty; not sure if it matters though.
