Default Re: Going Tri-SLI Soon...Which Power Supply should I get for my HP BlackBird?

With the new power supply...I want each cable to be detachable like my current one and would prefer 12-volt rails to each molex vs having them share the whole 12-volts. So what power supply out there would some of you recommend?
Why not just sell the qx9770 + mobo and upgrade to Core i7?

Doesn't seem to be any certified PSU:s that fill the requirements you've set, so I'd say try it with the one you've got now and upgrade only if needed - 1,1Kw should be enough(most certified PSUs are 1200w).
