The Corsair TX750 can handle that, it has 4x 6/8-pin PCIe connectors. Best PSU for the money IMHO.

Maybe you should explain Why you need it? For Crossfire, even with two 4870X2's, the TX750 should handle it.

Um, yeah. That's called an "estimate". Check out the signatures of some of our members here. I think I've even seen a Tri-Sli system running off of the same Corsair TX750 that I suggested. Otherwise, if you're dead-set on getting a 1Kw power supply. The HX1000 from Corsair is an excellent option.

It seems mister Lauzon like to buy only the best and does not like suggestion, so If you absolutely want a 1Kw, then go for the corsair as suggested. you can never go wrong with corsair PSU, they are reliable and have good pricing.

I can vouch for the Ultra X3 1000W, although it not widely available and a little pricier than others. Good performance, entirely modular, single 12V rail, and the fan stays pretty quiet until it's pushed hard. Also very sleeking looking, with its titanium finish and black flex cables.
