Hi all

i have an old raidmax rx-730SS. this is for a single r9 280x gpu on an asus sabertooth 990fx r2.0 motherboard.

a friend gave me his old r9 280x, giving me 2 to work with but the PSU doesn't have two PCI-E power cords.

want something safe, reliable, and can easily support double r9 280x gpu. any suggestions?
 
Well, Raidmax doesn't sell very high quality power supplies. Also, you didn't mention your CPU. I'm hoping you don't have a 220W CPU. If you do please let us know.

This one is a good price on sale:

Or the B2 if you miss the sale on the G2, and the B2 is really good also.

There may be a cheaper unit that is just as good, but I'd have to let someone that knows about it suggest it because I don't know.
