Default Power supply recommendation

Hey guys,

I need a PSU recommendation for a 2600k & 6950 rig. They want to use multiple monitors including an HDTV so I figure it's worth getting a decent power supply but hopefully under $100. Found this one here on newegg Canada:

Not sure if it's powerful enough.

Seasonic, Enermax, Antec, Corsair, Thermaltake....These are perhaps the top companies in the field so you really can't go wrong with their products....However i would recommend get the best one you can with the maximum amount of cash you can....PSUs are one of the few PC components that hardly ever change....

Get a Corsair if you want to be like me, and who the hell doesn't?

A good 600W PSU should be adequate for any single GPU graphics card (like an nVidia GTX 580). The Corsair should be a good 600W unit.

If you want to crossfire or SLI two high-end cards, it wouldn't be enough.
