Cheapest PSU for Radeon 4850x2

Solution
Rosewill is not a good manufacturer, it's not even a good brand such as Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, Cooler Master, Thermaltake ......
a 600W or 650W will handle your GPU like suggested, but a 750W PSU will be a good option for future upgrade, and you must list your all system specs so that i recommend the right one for you

i forgot to say "and meet your future needs"

a little bit of advice: don't be cheap with your PSU. even if you don't have the money right for good PSU it is better safe than sorry. save some money and get reliable PSU.
 
^+1.

The PSU is the most critical componet in a PC.If you have a crappy PSU it's possible that it might just die by itself.But theirs also a chance that when it does die that it will take other compoenets with it.What could have been an extra $30 to ensure a good quality PSU now turned into a $500 mistake.

The reason i havent listed my componets is because im buying a new MOBO and new CPU and bought new Memory.. but im thinking or reselling my CPU and MOBO for diff ones.. so far this is what i have

Phenom II x4 840 3. 2Ghz Processor / A880G+ Biostar Mobo / Patriot G Series 'Sector 5' 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) / Basic RW Drive / 80GB WD HDD. Nothing Special.

Looking to sell my Biostar and Phenom II x4 840 3.2ghz and get AMD Phenom II x4 925 Black Edition (2.8 Ghz) / ASUS M4A785TD-v EVO
 
another advise, when you upgrade your CPU and MOBO specially with AMD try to get the most recent as the price is always cheap, why the 925 while you can take advantage of the 965 or 980 over gaming?
and why are you getting so old graphics card ? are you going to be gaming or not ?
if you're going to be gaming you must get on of the HD 6K series

i already have the 4850x2 but i found two ATI Radeon 4870 HD for 120 with BIOSTAR TH67+....
id rather have the quad core just because there about the same price wise used..
but you would suggest the 965 and 980? which phenom is better?
 
Yah.BE processors are Black and Green.

On the topic of the 965 or 980 theirs no need to spend that much when you can get the 955.You can save yourself $50 by getting the 955 and O.C.ing to the speed of the 980 or higher with just a tiny voltage tweak.

I think you should just get a AM3+ mobo and a Dual Core, O.C./Unlock Cores.You can put the extra money towards a good PSU and save money to upgrade to a Bulldozer CPU.
