    I extrapolated my impression from reviews on other tiers of the Platinum Prime Ultra series as well as some indications that the 550W is an upgraded and rebranded Focus Plus model, based on this...

    Not particularly stuck on it, just liked the reviews on the Prime Ultra series and was going to go with 650W one in Platinum, but it's not sold anywhere, so I decided on the 550W as it seemed plenty...

    Oh oops, yes, hot day, melting brain--indeed 5. I'm located in the U.S.A. in Massachusetts.

    Looks like there's room for two 8-pin PCI-E cables, right? (the bottom row):

    I don't know where I'd get an extra cable, however.

    Any other recommendations as...

    Hmm, looking again at EVGA's recommended 500W PSUs (for this configuration), they also have 1 cable for PCI-E with 2 8-pin connectors. I'm guessing this shouldn't be an issue for normal use.

  6. Is Seasonic Prime Ultra 550W sufficient for this system?

    Full system specs:

    Note: everything here will be running at stock settings, not overclocked:

    G-450 should be enough for that if you're not going to overclock your 3820 and 7870 to the extreme. Otherwise if you will, G-550 will be more than plenty.

    I'm not sure there's such a thing as a dust-loving PSU. You may have to use compressed air to clean it out periodically (blowing at exposed areas).

    It's currently FIOS for the internet, and Verizon does provide the phone service and cable TV too--which I'm not sure has anything to do with FIOS, but maybe they bundle it up. Either way, there...
