I'd say 850w or more... im damn glad i got a 1Kw to "future-proof" my system last year, seems to have been a good investment.

Man I wish I had more money so I could buy a 4870 X2 CF setup but I need to save for college. Man saving is hard.

4870 crossfire consumes slightly more power than 4870x2, and it only needs 600w, 650watt for quads/some hardcore ocing and 700watt for hard drive freaks.

Totally agree, I just has said 750W, but I would now say 850w.

I'd say a good 750W PSU should be able to handle, or you could get a 1000w just to be future proof.
This is what I said in another thread, but nobody believed me..
