I'm thinking of picking up another 6950 for crossfire, would the Corsair be enough for my system or am I cutting it close?

Thx

Yes, it's fine for that load. You're not cutting it close.

That'll do the job but you're better off getting this and saving some money.

The new V2s that just came out are apparently the same price, Can anyone point out any reason to go for the CWT model over this?

EDIT: Cool thanks Shub, I figured Corsair just hasn't cut the prices on the old TX line yet. Just wanted some reassurance.

Anyways OP, no you're not cutting it close you are more than fine. Cutting it close would probably be a 550w psu or a little lower.

There is no reason, the V2 units are superior in every way.

6950 max to 200w. That 750tx can pull 60a/720w on 12v so it should be fine based on what you have.

Even a quality 600w could pull it off
