Any suggestion or pointers welcome!
Using PSU "Coolmax CUG-950W" with XFX 5770 for over a year. No problems at all and enough power for future add ons.
I would not rely on that if I were you. AMD certifies only 2 4850's, even for the 1000 watt model. Sure, a 5770 draws fewer amps than 2 4850's, but by no means does this make that PSU "future proof"... because they all draw relatively low amounts.
A bad PSU can not only go out, but take a few of your other parts with it. Getting a really good a good PSU is more than worth it... and the price difference between good ones and bad ones really isn't that different.
