    Uh, the 3rd Antec one. I really don't see you needing a 1000W PSU not unless you got a mini-datacenter in your rig (4+ HDDs, multiple CPUs, 4x Crossfire, etc).

    I'd even say a 650W would more than power your rig with your HD4890 CF.

    My own rig runs fine on my 520W already, so you're basically just adding another graphics card. Otherwise, it's pretty close to my setup.

      I'm with Acreo on this one... Antec. Best line of PSUs I have ever owned.

        I'd go for this one instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139012

        More quieter, i have the 620HX and it runs fine with my 5850.

          If your trying to stay around $100 check these out. They all have the same basic specs, except the HX line is modular - which is nice as you don't have a bunch of extra wires to try and tuck away. I've had the Corsair 750TX for 4 years and an 850TX for 2 years now and they've been great workhorses. The important spec on these is the strong single 12V rail. All the top tech review sites recommend single rail PSU's for gaming and video apps. Plus the warranty is 5-7 years.

          I used the 650HX for a relative's build with an AMD X6 1055T + AM3 890GXM-G65 board...

          My Core i7-920 with the Corsair 850TX in THE BLACK PHANTOM - Stage 1. I modded the new NZXT PHANTOM case to house a custom Water Cooling system with a triple 120mm fan radiator up top. The case came with brackets for a double 120 radiator, so I had to drill new holes on the top beam to align the triple rad correctly. The 850TX sits nicely on the bottom, and I added modded power cables to match the black and red theme (the case comes with blue lighting, but I switched it to red lighting). Stage 2 will be Water Cooling the GPU...

            Not sure exactly what you're running for hardware, but 750W is more than enough for anything short of the most outrageous computers. I have an overclocked CPU, two graphics cards in SLI and many hard drives and my 750W PSU has never had a problem with it. For brands, I think you should stick with these: Antec, Corsair, Enermax, OCZ, PC Power and Cooling and Seasonic. Look for 80+ certification. Right now I'm a big fan of Corsair for a compromise between price and performance.
