Ya I am almost same as above but watercooled with 2 pumps, 8 fans overclocked i7 2 6950's running 6970 volts and have never seen over 700 watts with my meter

To the OP.

You do NOT need a +850W PSU to run a 6970 CF.

An example of that is my self:

i7 2600k @ 4.8Ghz 1.35v
x2 Sapphire HD6970 CF +20% Powertune @ 920/1450


If I run Prime 95 (Blend Mode) + Furmark (On both cards) the max Wattage I see is around 600W

Therefor, I still have room enough...

Any quality +700W PSU will do the job, 750W preferably.
