Hey just getting a machine with:
cooler master silent pro M700,
has a i5 750 running stock atm (might try overclock to just b4 voltage needs changed to go higher),
gigabyte p55-ud3,
crucial 4gb kit ddr3,
seagate 1tb,
samsung 22x dvd writer,
cooler master cm 690 black,
win7 home premium 64 bit.

Also getting a sapphire 5770. Was wondering whether the psu will be big enough to run 5770s x-fired. Have read reviews saying that should only need 600+ with at least 55amps available across the +12 rails. The cm m700 only has 50 amps but will it still run dual 5770s for this config?

For gaming, home theatre type applications. Games: css, hon, wow, crysis maybe, tf2 etc.

Thanks in advance.

I think you'd get away with a good 550W, really. Your CM700 should be plenty enough.

Which is still 2 higher than the cm m700 but is more stable.

I think I'd trust the Corsair one myself
