    Hi,

    I was planning on adding another 4870 to my current setup.

    Unfortunately my current PSU (sig) only has 2 x PCI-E 6-pin connectors.

    Do you guys have good suggestions for this kind of a setup?

    I've heard a lot of good things about the PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750w and the Corsair TX750.
    The only problem is, that I like my current modular setup quite a lot, so I was planning on getting one for x-fire.
    I'm also looking at a single 12V rail, since those seem to get a lot of recommendations from people.

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Sorry if this was the wrong section, but I'm also overclocking my cpu to around 4 GHz and both graphics cards cooling them with Accelero twin turbos.

    for modular i also want to throw in an Ultra X3 800W into the mix. Its also a single rail and I own one and its great. Its a bit more $$$ than the DA850 and less amps on the 12v rail though but has nicer cables.

    Thanks both of you for the suggestions. More are appriciated.

    I'm a bit sceptical about the Ultra, they have a bad name. I've been consulting this a lot:

    Also the Decathlon is a bit expensive here in finland.
    I could get the Corsair or PC P&C for 40€ less (of course, non modular, but still).

    Keep 'em coming :)

    those are good choices but not modular though. In regards to Ultra PSUs, you are right, some have been not as reliable but the X3 line that i recomended are top notch and received rave reviews. Anyway, good luck on whatever you decide.

    Actually the ultra x3 has gotten a lot of great reviews, but I went with the corsair 1000w trust me, for the next 5 years this should handle everything you can throw at it and more if not, well theres always those 30 new nuclear reactors the gov is building.
