        As I'm a beQuiet whore, I have to post this http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=46239
        It's modular meaning you will have no messy cables lieing around and has plenty of headroom.

        But if you want a more efficient PSU http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=48400
        This is 80Plus Gold compared to the bequiet which is 80Plus Bronze (Still very good) although this is non-modular so it may be a bit harder to manage your cables.

              Heh 750 watt for dual cards? You sure, or am I missing something? I asked whether 750 watt was good enough for dual GTX 670's and was told 1000watt heh.

                call it 200w each to be safe, another 200 for your main parts, add another 50 if you want to oc and a good 650w psu would cover sli 670s.

                you shouldnt ask sales people for tech advice, they will always tell you you need the most expensive.

                  The reason people tell you this, is some other websites (not aria) sell shitty generic "chinese number 5" power supplies that while are rated at 1000w, in practice, probably only put about about 500-600w.

                  Aria generally only sell good branded power supplies which actually do what they say they can, in fact more with a lot of the higher end PSU's.

                  Like some of the top end Corsair AX series PSU's you could probably push to the very limit and would be ok, where as the "chinese number 5" would make a loud pop, followed by smoke, followed by every component in your PC never working again.

                    I'd go with TX750 that Spaceboy linked. My TX650 has been solid !

                      750w is the min required for the 670 in sli, but i would always get more than say by at least 100W, cos this will give you a little more headroom for overclocking
