Yes, but like which type. There are the greendot ones, for example.

If it's reloadable, it is not sold by mastercard directly.

Okay, I'm JUST about to place my order right now if I can get an answer about something.

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817371030

Will that have enough power to support 2x 5770s?

AMD says you need 550w for Xfire. That one would be pushing it but should work.

Oh boy...I dunno then. Is this really my best option? My spending cap was increased to $300 but can't go a PENNY over.

Okay, so considering tax, how much would that give you for a PSU?

I have no idea how the canadian tax system works.

the PSU is 59.99, the grand total is $263. So we've got $37 of legroom, which is about $33 before tax so $89.99 before tax is probably a safe bet for a psu.

Bingo.

One day only deal though. Hope you are ready to buy.

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817371031 This one is single-rail though. I still think the earthwatts is the better choice in this case.

$296.60, beautiful, and pretty much exactly the price i predicted. I'm buying it, but I'm concerned about the amount of wires. I removed and replaced the psu in two of my old pcs and they were very different. I saw some people hooking their psu to their vcard directly which I didn't have to do. I hope you're willing to help me install it when I get it just in case.
