    I just got a great deal on a pair of used 7970s locally, and was wondering if my PSU was up to the task.. I'm guessing no.

    Any reasonably priced recommendations? IDC about whether it's modular or not

    Was looking at this discounted (and fairly old) Kingwin unit, Super Flower OEM

    I could even just get a second PSU, my TJ07 has two bays... Anyone have experience with an Add2Psu or similar product? I could just pick up a second TX650V2 and call it a day

    Anything from a reputable brand will fit the bill. Really depends how much you want to spend / what features you want. Normally you pay a bit extra for semi / full modular and the higher the efficiency ratings (bronze, silver, gold, platinum) the greater the cost. Can't comment on prices for scan and such but a lot of the community will recommend brands such as seasonic, corsair, enermax, coolermaster, etc.

    What I would get, Seasonic X850

    But judging from you had in the first post I suspect you might be looking for something cheaper so maybe the SS850AM instead?

    I defineatly wouldn't skimp on some cheap psu for some nice hardware.
