And you have the review links? [/QUOTE]

Sure do
BFG ES 800 Watt PSU review
bit-tech.net | Review - BFG ES Series 800W PSU
Techaddicts.net - BFG ES Series ES-800 800 Watt Power Supply

With a lifetime warranty for your guys side of the pond it is very good IMO shows that BFG are either idiots and will lose a ton of money or are confident that they have got it right this time.

I think it's a great guide to go by so you don't end up buying some pretty chromed out PSU with blue lights just because it looks super cool and says 1000w.. Ones like that generally are about looks not stability.. Anyways, kudos to you Ste for putting a great guideline to follow when looking to buy a new psu.

Newegg.ca - Rosewill RX630-S-B 630W 80 PLUS Certified , ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Is this Power Supply any good? I m trying to find a decent Power supply for around $100~$120.

Newegg.ca - Antec BP550 Plus 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Is this Power Supply any better then the Rosewill?

Newegg.ca - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Seems I might go with the Corsair instead. Since everyone loves corsair, so I'll take my chances with it.

Would it handle Deneb along with my future crossfire set up?

Its SLI Ready, and it comes with two PCI-e Connectors.. but I think it might be close to pushing it even with the plenty of amps it has

4830 Crossfire @ load consume about 270 watts. So would adding a 125 Watt CPU be pushing it?
