    Dual power supplies and 'crossloading' concerns

    Add a "GPU Booster" PSU, it fits in the 5.25" bay. What PSU are you using now?

    If this is running "ok" for you, why the upgrade? And if upgrading from PC P&C 500W (+12V@35A), go to at least 650W/750W (+12V@50A)/(+12V@60A). Antec New True, Earthwatts, Corsair HX, TX

    Need new strong PSU

    All PSU's should be loaded between 40% & 60% of the rated max for most efficient operation, this also allows sufficient "headroom" for spikes & transients.:D

    External 12v DC power brick

    Yes, usually used only for control logic usually about +5V@0.75A (3.75W).

    Spin-up produces only a short transient, you do not need a PSU rated as high as short transients, the 60W brick "might" be ok, if 60W is enough to meet the max sustained requirements & it is designed to handle these spikes & transients. If the manufacturer recommends it , it "should" be fine.

    Need new strong PSU

    Way over kill! A Corsair 550W or 650W is the ideal or 750W for future CF. The Antec New True PSU's of the same wattage earn the same recommendation. If you just want an ultimate, never worry forever, expand till Star Trek, recommendation, it would be for a Corsair 850HX or Antec Signature 850W...

    Corsair 650W PSU choice.

    An excellent choice, the 750W for CF with 2X 5850's.:D

    OCZ Gamestream 850W?

    For a pair of 5870's, the choice is the Corsair 850W, but a 750TX will be fine & your 620HX will work. The Antec Signature 850W, XFX 850W & the 850W Seasonic's would be ideal also.:D

    OCZ Gamestream 850W?

    With that 4870 X2 you are fully using your 620HX, but it can handle it, I would have gone a 750HX myself for cooler, quieter operation with more headroom for transients. A 950TX would be a nice improvement & allow for a second 4870 X2.;)

    Need some UPS help...should I buy this APC 2200va?

    BUY IT! That is a killer UPS & battery packs are cheap!:D

    External 12v DC power brick

    HDD's can pull upto +12V@3A during start of spin-up, that is 36W. This is a short, under 2-sec transient.

    As stated the Corsair 620HX is far superior PSU, what are your system specs?
