Default Psu.

Newegg.com - Thermaltake W0116RU Complies with ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V version 750W Power Supply 100 - 240 V CE, CB, TUV, FCC, UL, CUL, and BSMI certified - Retail

Newegg.com - Thermaltake toughpower W0117RU ATX12V / EPS12V 750W Power Supply 100 - 240 V CE, CB, TUV, FCC, UL, CUL, and BSMI certified - Retail

Whats the difference between these two PSU's? One says its SLI ready and the other crossfire. What makes that so?

SLI is 2 nvidia cards, crossfire is 2 ATI cards, not sure what the difference in the psu's is other than that.

One has modular cables, but they are both way too much unless you plan to run dual Ultras. A corsair 520hx or 620hx or pc&p 610 are alot cheaper and will be more than enough for any build that is single card, or dual GTS.
