    Since my 600W PSU can't do two 4850s here are my options i've been looking at.

    Thermaltake
    Antec
    Corsair
    Rosewill

    Me looking mainly at the Thermaltake since it has 2 6Pin PCI-E Connectors which is all i basically need but the Rosewill has 4 so i'm keeping that in mind if i ever go for 58XX later.

    Does it have to be 750W?

    Either the Corsair or the ThermalTake would work, but I would go for the Corsair because I've always had good luck with Corsair products. The Antec shows up as deactivated, and Rosewill PSUs are junk for the most part

    That Corsair has a Mean deal on it...if you need it now id say the Corsair but id wait for the Antec to go on sale again like Buck Nasty said.

    The PC Power & Cooling Silencer is a sweet PSU too. Look around some times you see it on special offer. As it can run 2 x 2900XT's it can run what you have no problem.

    This is funny... so far, most of the PSU's that have been suggested outside of IQ's post are SeaSonic built... :roll:

    Corsair. You'll never have to worry about voltages or the thing failing or anything, the absolute best quality PSU's IMHO.

    Exactly why I have a Corsair. My 400W Corsair runs so much shit on it and it never gives me any bullshit.

    But the Antec PSU looks great. And ThermalTake and Seasonic are also great companies.

    Posting this from my cell phone so no links but the Corsair TX750W is the best 750 watt PSU hands down.

    I would probably agree. The higher price tag is definitely worth the quality you get.

    Alot of fanboi's in here tonite:laugh:. Remember, every King must hve a successor and I think the Antec TP750 is just the kinda PSU to dethrone the Corsair 750TX, IMHO.

    This Be Quiet PSU I have is pretty epic if you can find them where you live.

    TPU review

    More then enough connections 4 x 6 +2 pci-e for graphics cards and a shit load of other connections.

    Also has a basic fan control thing going on, can connect 4 3 pin fans directly to the PSU and it will run them at about half speed unless the PSU gets hot then it will switch them up to 100%

    mine never gets over ambient even under load though so it never does it ha ha

    i think the Antec EA750 (The one i have Linked) will do just fine. I really have to stop going towards and buying Rosewill PSUs now.

    no fanboyism going on this is actually the first Corsair psu I've owned but as far as stability goes it's the best I've owned so far in 30+ years of computer use/ownership.

    I've had good experiences with Rosewill, and its the cheapest of the ones you picked. I recommend them.
