    it needs to be at least 750 watts but no more than 900 watts , have two sets dedicated sli /crossfire connections and have similar dimensions to below due to size restriction on my case , however, the length could go as high as 6.8. I would like to stay under 150.00 if possible. My current power supply can handle two 260 gtx but doesn't have enough power connections for my liking.

    5.9inches x 5.5 inches x 3.38 inches (W x L x H) the length could be as high as 6.8 inches
    150 x 140 x 86mm (W x L x H)

    Take a good look at the AeroCool "Horse Power" PSU's

    I recently got one sort of "taking a chance" as I had heard almost nothing about aerocool, apart from a few reviews that I could hardly believe, as they claimed as little as 0% voltage fluctuation.

    This is the MOST STABLE PSU I have ever personally used - Here are some quick OCCT results for the 750 I am using right now. I used the GPU test for a few minutes as it draws quite a bit of power on both the GPU & CPU.

    CPU RUNNING AT 3.1Ghz - For some reason OCCT detects my "IDLE" Clocks and not my active clocks :\

    Below is a link to a review of the 650Watt - there is a 750 variant that's pretty much the same thing just 750Watt.

    Or perhaps just google them a little.

    I would say get the modular 850 Wat Seventeam psu from the egg for $129.99. Seventeam just started making psu's under there own name but have been a OEM for years. A very good OEM at that.

    dont know if it fits on your case but the PCPOWER & COOLING seems the best for me.

    Actually, if I upgrade, it will be to this PSU. A buddy of mine picked one up, and loves it. Really a great value.

    I don't think so. Doesn't seem to be a quality unit and only 20A on the +12V rail... :wtf:
