Antec High Current PSU's

post #1 of 13

http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0348767

Thinking about buying that PSU... Lets assume I have a T1090, 8gb of ddr3, 2 HDD's, 2 optical drives, and six fans.

Whats the best GPU I can get with that setup? No SLI/Crossfire


According to Microcenter guy, my 460 is currently being held back because its not reciving enough amps. I don't know JACK about PSU's so I need confirmation, that this will actually improve my current sig rigs performance.

Thanks

The HCG-620 can handle any single video card.
Note that it's identical internally to the Antec Neo Eco 620C, which can usually be found for less money than the HCG-620.

Yeah but can you confirm that my GPU performance will increase like the microcenter guy claims? He said my 460 is being held back by not enough amps.

Best setup you could do would be two 6970s or GTX570s.

I can't find any reviews on your psu so I can't tell if it's over-rated or not or how good it is. When your playing a game do you see your clocks throttling back? If so your psu needs to go.

Microcenter guy is an idiot. Your PSU is mediocre, but isn't anywhere near bad enough to cause performance issues. It's adequate for your system, just don't try to upgrade your GPU too much on it.

Thanks, and I am assuming a single 580 would work too?

And yeah, looks like I need to upgrade.

With the Neo Eco, you have to buy your own power cord.

Also, the MicroCenter advice should be taken with a huge grain of salt. They keep trying to get you to buy more stuff you don't need.
