    You're not going to find a PSU that has four 6 + 2 pin connectors in that price range tbh. You'll have to use adapters, or add another £15-20 to your budget.

    Yeah that was the problem i was going to see if there was one around the £100 mark that would do the trick? There seem to be so many around that price range, just need one that would do crossfire 7950's that have 2x8 pci-e power thingies each
    Couple that i've come up with:
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/680w...s-gold-sli-crossfire-eps-12v-quiet-fan-atx-v2
    http://www.********************/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-001-XF
    But honestly... i have no idea
    EDIT: So i think i solved the problem

    That is my final build now, as soon as that samsung 840pro is back in stock i shall be placing my order at last!
    Everything look ok?

    or
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w...-plus-gold-90-eff-eps-12v-sli-crossfire-1x120 then? :D
    EDIT: Approx how much will a 7950 oc'd take power wise? Those xfx sound good, but only have a 12 month warranty, any others you'd recommend?

    Where are you getting the 12 month warranty from? Almost every other UK retailer offers 5 year with XFX.

    Right at the bottom


    Details

    Duration: 12 months

    Type: Return to base

    DOA Period: 28 days
    EDIT: I looked on another site and it said for the same one simply register it and it goes from 2 years to 5 years, don't understand why this would say 12 months, simple typo?

    I'm guessing that's just how long the shop will honour the warranty. Your warranty with XFX should be longer, but no -- it's not paticularly well detailed.

    The shop is apaz great for service etc... but i've seen so many mistakes, or not updating the site in ages... kinda annoying when comparing different sites and they say different things haha.
    So the choice is between:
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w...-bronze-sli-crossfire-eps-12v-quiet-fan-atx-v
    or
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w...-plus-gold-90-eff-eps-12v-sli-crossfire-1x120
    I promise this will be one of the last questions i ask about... i think i've pretty much sorted everything else.. Except the Vertex 4 went up in price by 30 quid overnight, so changed to the 840 pro SSD

    That black edition is absolutely fantastic, but both will serve you well.

    I spent days of googling and youtubing before I even ordered my keyboard lol. Always good to do in depth research.

    Very true :D The only reason i didn't do it for my keyboard was that i got the 90% off razor bug :p
    Problem is you end up doing too much research and start thinking if you're getting the wrong stuff
