I would continue to use the XFX Radeon 6870 Black that I have now with my i5-750 mounted within a ASRock P55-Pro Mainboard.

I have 4GB of GSKill RipJaws DDR3-1600 RAM.

My case is a CoolerMaster 430 Elite Black with 6 ENERMAX MAGMA UC-MA12 120mm Case Fans in it. (they move 69.15 CFM of air each and with only 18 dBA of Noise Level too!)

I have a ASUS DVD Burner and a WD 1TB black HDD in there for storage.

I would have to put my SeaSonic PSU on the shelf, but I'm interested in seeing for myself the reliability and stability of the XFX PSU's.

 

Good luck to all of the rest of you guys on being chosen to receive one of these prizes.

I ended up selling my Hp XW8600 workstation to a friend of mine when Sandy Bridge came out. I was hoping to get the same performance from dual quad cores( 8 cores) with a single Sandy Bridge Quad Core

As I was waiting for his check to clear, the Sandy bridge defect was announced and all the motherboards were recalled. I am now stuck waiting for the fixed motherboards to start selling again. I have not had a computer for about 3 weeks and it is driving me crazy.

I occasionally do some video editing work and Adobe Premiere CS5 only supports the GTX 470 video card, so I am stuck with that particular card. This power supply would help my rig as it will be one less item I will have to purchase when the motherboards start shipping again

 

 

Here is my build below, its gonna be close to the power envelope but I will undervolt the video cards when Evga comes out with their utility. Gonna adjust CPU and Video card clocks to keep load at 650 watts

 

 

CPU: i7 2600K (Not more than 10% overclock, depending on power limits)

MB: ASUS P8P67 Deluxe

Memory: Patriot Extreme Performance Sector 5 G Series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333MHz CL9 DIMMs X2 for 16GB RAM

Graphics: 2 X EVGA GTX 470 SLI Non Overclocked Standard Cards with High Airflow Brackets (Already purchased)

HDD (Storage): 1 X Western Digital Black 1TB Boot Drive, 1 X Western Digital Green 2TB Storage Drive

PSU: XFX Pro750 Watt

Case: Coolermaster HAF 922 with all optional fans installed

 

This comes out to 653 Watts under full load. The XFX Pro750 should be fine. I am sure it can handle it.
