And since I have you all here... what kind of a PSU would be necessary to run FOUR 5850's? I'm assuming around 800w minimum?
The Antec unit is superior to the TX-650 so that is the one you should go with for this build.

For 4 5850's I believe you're looking at 750 or 850 if you plan to OC..XFX Black Edition 850 is a good one in that range.

That's worlds better than the service I received from them. Sadly, it doesnt take much to sour me on one vendor when the market is saturated with fine options.

Wish I was in oregon, nice cheap power up there. I love cali but there are some serious drawbacks to living here.
Since for your money you probably want to OC to get the best hash rates I'd not suggest you try and run 4 5850s on a 650W. Even stock I don't recommend that. An 850 unit would probably be your best bet for distributing power along the rails and cabling and whatnot, and it's not even that expensive really. Can get an HX850 for $144.99 AR right now. Pretty damn snazzy deal.

Basically any 650W unit from the OCN recommended list that fits your budget.

The Corsair TX650v2, Antec TP-650, Antec HCG-620, Antec NeoECO 620W, SeaSonic M12II 620W, SeaSonic S12II 620W, or XFX Core Edition 650W would all be excellent units that fit your budget.


You know, I wasn't trying to do this, but every one of those PSUs is manufactured by SeaSonic. There are some ~650W units cheaper, but they aren't as good, and there are some better ~650Ws, but they're more expensive. I guess SeaSonic is really rocking this market segment right now.

Why people keep recommending the Corsairs at this price point is beyond me.

From what you're talking about, to me it seems that the Tri-GPU config you're talking about would be for folding. Am I correct? If that's so, don't worry. I wouldn't game with three of them, though. The power consumption would probably be in the 600+W range. For folding, you're fine.

I'm still wondering why you're using AMD cards for folding, though.
Since when? I'd take a Corsair over an Antec PSU any day. Corsair and Seasonic are the same brand, one just has a different name.

Ever since it was introduced. They're both SeaSonic units, but like I said, the TPN-650W uses a more modern design. It has much better ripple suppression, higher efficiency, and four native PCI-E 6+2 pin connectors. It's also semi-modular. They're not the same unit.

You and many others need to stop drooling over every Corsair PSU that comes out. Their recent Builder Series is junk, and their first TX series is using an outdated design. The TPN-650W is the best Power Supply you can buy under $100, as of today.

And you, sir, need to stop taking others' comments and suggestions out of context. He asks for a decent PSU, I make a suggestion based on my prior experience. That's that.

I. DON'T. CARE.

The TruePower New 650W is a better unit, whether you want to accept it or not.

I never said it wasn't. Grow up.

No, you need to grow up and stop recommending things simply based on your experience. Your experience may be good; someone else's might be terrible. If you're gonna recommend something, it's good to stick to the facts as much as possible.
