Wattage isn't near as important as the total amperage that the 12v rail puts out, combined the Antec TP Trio 650w puts out 57A split into 3 independent 12v rails 19ax19ax19a = 57a. I have checked the website and it will run dual 4850 in crossfire, however that being said if intend on overclocking your 9950 then I would suggest something with more amperage on the 12v lines to be on the safe side.

Antec also has one here eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - Antec Edition

Canadacomputers will quite happily take your psu back at a 15% restocking fee.

15% restocking fee its unopened and it states on their warranty they will take the product back within 7days for unopened product for exchange,refund,credit unless they dont honour their own warranty which would definately rattle me up.

You should be alright then sorry I haven't shopped at CC in almost 5 years and I haven't read their return policy lately, but I am well aware of the 15% restocking highlighted on many of the invoices I get I thought it might be the same.

It quite alright no need apologize at all i returned the psu with out hassle just abit of waiting though ha. Noticed a pretty good deal for the palit 4850 sonic edition 685mhz core/1ghz memmory 200$ after $20MIR which is relatively 14$ cheaper then the stock sapphire gpu card and way worth it, i had to get it.Phew there was 2 left luckily i got one.

Well the rest of the parts should be on it way from DC maybe in 5days with ground shipping. I shouldnt have to pay no brokeage fees or anything right since it in Canada because they only applyed GST 5% on check out for Ontario residents.

Nope, since their business is in BC they are not obligated to collect the PST for Ontario.... of course you as a dedicated citizen of Ontario are supposed to report the purchase and remit the PST to the provincial treasury......
