750w or 850w

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I'm about to build my first desktop and I want your opinions whether or not I should go with a Corsair 750HX or an 850HX. I'm planning on getting 1 6950 now but eventually CFing two. I do plan on OCing my 2500k and also unlocking shaders on the 6950(s).

There's a $25 difference between the two, and i could go for either one, so my question is whether or not it's a good deal to go with the 850HX now, to possibly be "future-proof" or if i should just stick with the 750HX and pocket the $25. What's your opinions.

Thanks! (my first post too... hope i didn't screw up)

i say the 850 for more future proofing but the 750 should be enough

Go with the 850.
Having the extra headroom to upgrade later on is well worth it.
