750TX could run 5870 crossfire or go with the Corsair 850TX if you are overclocking (newer, and I hear its overall, better quality)
The HX 850 is the new one, not the TX.

I don't understand how an ide controller would die. I would understand maybe if two different power supplies were used on one piece of hardware. Say two power supplies on the same board, one hooked up to a EPS and the other to a 24pin otherwise it would make no difference as running a regular power supply alone.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/56...ter_Cable.html just make sure you grab one of those if you choose dual psu setup, but i would also recommend a single, its just easier.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

G.Skill Trident 1600MHz 6-8-7-18 : Samsung F3 1TB
OCZ Vertex 2 50GB : Silverstone RV02 Case
