New build/builder+ mild OCng = proper PSU?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Key info:

Mainly gaming/video playback
Looking to OC the cpu and possibly Ram/GPU
Single GPU (box says 500w min + 2 6pin PCIe)
Fairly steady use (4+hrs at a time)
Want to keep some headroom for possible future upgrades
Trying to stay under $100 Cdn for PSU to keep everything else in line

Been eyeing up Antec TP650w, also Seasonic M12II 620w

My mind tells me this will allow for some mild OC (on air) as well as keeping the current components running smoothly. My real question I suppose is,
for a few $$ more is it worth shopping in the 750w market or is that complete overkill for a single GPU/lo-mid budget rig?

This will save you a little bit of money and yes, 650W is plenty for a system like that with everything overclocked.

If you aren't planning on running SLI/Crossfire then a quality 400-500W power supply would be more than enough. The Antec NeoECO series are usually a great value.
