Hey guys, I was wondering which psu would be better for a system that has two radeon hd6950's (unlocked shaders and overclocked to 6970) in crossfire setup and a i5-2500k cpu with a moderate overclock.

650w is enough! But you could go 750 for headroom, but you should be fine with a quality 650w!

Oh i just noticed something. The xfx units have 4 pci-e connectors whereas the corsair units only have 2??

If I'm not mistaken a 6950 CF setup would take 4 connectors right?

Can anyone confirm this as I could be wrong about the corsair unit.

Correct, the old Corsair TX650 only has two PCIe connectors. The newer TX650V2 has four.

I would recommend the corsair 750 or 850. I love my ax 850 and that can handle anything and will last u for a wile.
