Need new PSU not sure which wattage

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Ok so I've determined my FSP psu has been causing all my system problems, e.g not being able to have my SSD and GTX570 in at the same time.

Could you spec me a SSD for my Sig rig with the option for SLI gtx570 in the future
i7 930 and GTX570

A quality 650w will do the trick. SeaSonic X, Corsair TX/HX come to mind.

1 Gtx570 in fulload takes 350W.

700W will be more than necessary.

650W would be fine really, and 750W would be more than enough. Anything beyond that would be downright wasteful.

No it doesn't, it's more along the lines of 200-250W depending on the type of load.

Ok which of the following would you get?

Will 750W definatly be enough for SLI?

XFI 750W black Edition

Coolermaster GX-750W

700W CoolerMaster Silent Pro

Corsair TX 750W ATX SLI Compliant Power Supply

Or even this

Corsair TX650W enthusiast PSU
I'd like to get modular if possible

A quality 650W will allow for SLI in the future.



Are you sure it isn't a motherboard issue though? SSDs take like 0.5W.

I had issues in the past with system stabliity where I got random restarts when the system was brand new.

Since it works fine atm with this X600 any idea how I could check If it was the mobo? Not certain how to check if i've a faulty motherboard

Out of those, I'd recommend the XFX 750W Black Edition. By far the best of the bunch.
Forget about the Cooler Master GX 750 right away, it's a turd.
