Can see your point but at the end of the day 500watt for sli/xfire? cutting it a bit fine there no? so for most a non issue.

The strange thing is that this particular PSU does not feature on the BFG website at all - not even in the 'Legacy Products' section. There's a GS-450 & GS-550 version, but no GS-500 :thinking:

Would ideally need that extra & dedicated PCI-E connector if it's going to be rated a SLI/CF PSU, & I had initially voted it hot on this basis.

500W is fine for a mid-range SLI setup. Even a Core i7 system with GTX 285 SLI will pull only about 460W DC. For that I’d want 700W to be on the safe side; decent brand of course. :thumbsup:

I'm fairly sure my Seasonic S12 II 500W is SLI certified not that I've used it for that. It would easily handle dual HD 4850 with my E8400 @ 3.6GHz.

most decent single cards like the 4870 and 4890 need two dedicated pci-e connectors. now most cards come with the a molex to pci e etc, issue here is to make sure its a two molex to pci-e, as some molex do not provide enough juice and can burn the cable out etc, hence i would of kept it if it did indeed come as advertised, as i didnt want to go the molex to pci-e route.

i personally would go for the ocz 600 watt at 12 quid more at ebuyer.
