    650w xfx

    I had a 750W Antec for years, but when I moved to a new PC I "downgraded" as I decided not to bother with crossfire or SLI again.

    I never run dual cards but I like to operate on the following principle: don't push my supply past 55%(ish) of its capacity --> max power efficiency and lifetime.

    Seasonic X-series 660W gold rated...the best option available at the time, & definitely worth the price premium

    Corsair 1200W
    Hangover from when I had 2x6990 and was bitcoin mining.
    Although as they nicely mailed me the other week, to let me know the 7 year warranty it came with, had been bumped to 10 years.... probably not going to replace it for a while.
