Default What PSU to get?

What kind of psu should i get? Is the HEC 750w any good. I'm getting a Sapphire Radeon 4870 1 gb and in the future going to get a AMD II 3.0 ghz quad core. So is the HEC 750w any good it has a good price

Edit: In the AMD website it said the HEC 750w could handle 2 Sapphire Radeon 4870's and its only 89.99. So maybe later I can cross fire em.

The pc power and cooling 750w will run crossfire 4870's with a problem.

Yes you can, just because its not advertised on it doesn't mean it won't run it. The PPCnC is one of the top PSU's around and will run 2x Hd4870's with an overclocked CPU fine.

Well i ran a full watercooling righ, 2 4870s and a q6600 at 4ghz on a corsair 750tx which has the same specs as the pc&p. Single fat 60amp 12v rail. Its a beast, and for 70 bucks is a steal.

buy it, it's a frustratingly good deal that we Canadians will never see now that our dollar is back on par with peanuts.

/edit: no shipping either!
