If you have to choose the two above I would go with the XFX.

Go for the XFX, you only have 1 card being powered so 550W will be plenty. You dont need 650-1000 until you start running 4+ cards on your system.

this 5970 will pull alone 400watts

I would get at least a 650watts PSU for safety and efficiency.

You should be fine. I have a 5770 running with a 365watt power supply, and the cards voltage is risen. Tongue

I run 5970's, and they pull much less than that when memory is downclocked.
More like, 250-300 watts a piece for me, but their cores are overclocked as well.

You should be safe with the XFX.

Donations are welcome!

yah, really

get

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817104097

that

i guess i'll add that i have 2 fsp group aurum gold's now, they're like seasonics except $20 cheaper and not packaged as nicely.  (dont get their non-gold versions)

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).
