I don't know much about Hi-Power, but I would assume they are budget and not a great choice. 800 watts is also a whole lot more than you need. I'd get something like this.

1st, what is he specs of your current psu? 9600 doesn't need alot, i ran a biger q6600 system on a 520hx.

So check your Amps before you get a new one.

A Corsair 550vx would be plenty of power for your system.

fortron actually make good psu's and that would probably run your system anyway, but to be safe an upgrade would be worth it, if your concerned about spending that much this would be a great choice to save money.

this is a relatively new psu and comes out about just as efficient as the corsair series at a lower price.

Its only a single rail.

Only the hx models are multi-rail.

For your setup, a 650 will be way more than enough.

I my sigs rig, less the 2nd 260 with the 520hx, which is only like 45A

I power the 2 cards with a 700W 58A psu now.
