Gonna put this psu into a clients build(telling him of course) and I'll Probs be able to throw another 20-30 on top so 50-70,

also what card is the better buy the gtx 295 for 150 or the 4870x2 for 120 also I'm pretty sure there isn't another card that can top these 2 in the price bracket if there is gimme a heads up, thanks

Not really, the 4870X2 draws around 250W or so under full load...

Antec Neo ECO 520 is $60. I'd get that.

Edit: The GTX295 is probably faster than the 4870X2.

That chart shows the gt 240 drawing 85w but it only draws power from the pci-e slot? Also I thought the hd 6990 draws 375w at reduced clocks and 450w with the overclock switch engaged?

No, not really whack at all. Especially when the CPU isn't being stressed; that system is only having its GPUs stressed.
post #20 of 40
It will probably work, but you will be stressing the psu too much under load. I wouldn't use anything above an HD6870 or a GTX460 with that psu. Oh, and both gpu's at stock clocks.

It's a fine psu, I bought one for my media center, but it doesn't do miracles.
