You might want to go with this psu... just to be safe. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-120g11000vr

duly noted! will consider it. i'm just not sure if it's a necessity. i'd rather be safe than sorry though.

your psu choice is an 850 watt, and your total wattage running crossfire 290s would be 727 watts ( http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DkW3gs). Running under full load, you may want the thousand watt psu. just my opinion however.

yea i think will go for 1000 watts. i knew it was 727 watts but i may also OC so i want extra headroom. can't skimp on the PSU.

thanks for the help!
