Hi. I'm building a new PC and all is left to buy is a Grafic card and a PSU. the Power supply must handle:
-Intel® Core™ i5-4430 Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.20 GHz)
-ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance
-1 SSD Samsung 840 Series 120GB
-1HDD Seagate Baracuda cache 64mb 3.0TB and 1HDD Hitachi 1TB
-2 Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition High Airflow 140mm Fan
-ASUS Blu-ray Drive BW-12B1ST
I want to buy a GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD7850.
so the question is with PSU should be Hande this configuration? XFX PRO Core Edition 650W or CORSAIR GS700W?

Actually even a good 450W PSU would be just fine.
I have more trust in XFX (seasonic) psu than Corsair (CWT) psu. But I would suggest a smaller PSU especially if you're not looking to have SLI/Crossfire.

Thanks Hefox.
My motherboard only support crossfire.
Actually i'm not going to use Crossfire now (limited budget) but in the future i can... and if i chose a Radeon HD7850 i will buy another in 3 or 4 months.
The questions is the PSU will handle it?

Check my rig and you will see I have a Seasonic 450W and is more than enough. Your system will use up to 300W so you enough room for future upgrades.

Ok. That is great.
So what about 2xRadeon HD7850? how many watts the PSU should have?
