The facts? The TX650 is a good unit, as confirmed by Phaedrus and reviews by others such as OklahomaWolf. I don't know what vendetta you're pushing here, but it's quite immature.

It's a good unit, but it doesn't hold a candle to the TPN-650W. End of.

That's being awfully generous.

Not at all. The TX-650W has pretty horrible ripple suppression.

OP, just get the TPN-650W.

Antec is cheaper overall and their customer service is excellent, so I wonder which is the better value after all this? Hmmmm...

Talking about price

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151096

Great price for that unit. Always have a psu that runs between 40-60 percent of its load to keep it at max efficiency and have some headroom. That's what I believe in not a must but its always a good idea

FYI, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371031 is the same unit for a lot less money, especially with the MIR deal currently going on and the $5 off promo code Although neither unit has the 4 PCIe connectors required by a dual 5850 setup.

its got 3 x 6 pin connectors
http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page678.htm

5850 needs 2
http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm

I know the 5870 2gb gpu does take a 2+6 where the 1gb version takes the 6 pin sure the OP ain't mixed up between the 5870 and 5850? I know the 5850 takes 2 x 6 pin but maybe some was released to take a 2 + 6 but its first time I seen this with the 5850. Anyone got a link for me to one?

I don't know where you're seeing 3 PCIe connectors on the SeaSonic S12II 620 Newegg and the site you linked to and SeaSonic's own web site all say it has one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCIe connector. The same applies to the equivalent Antec Neo Eco 620W. Even if it had three though, that's still one short of what two 5850s need
