Look, did you by any chance actually read my sig with the guide or the ocn recommended list of PSUs?
Someone has safely run a 5970 on an HX650, and the HX650 is a great PSU, I'd take it anyday over a 850. Also alot of times manus under rate PSUs, and the 650w figure is CONTINUOUS, which means it can actually output A LOT MORE than just 650.

but don't trust me if you don't want to.
Just check the PSU section and the dozens of smart members there who are running way more for way less. The PSU industry is the least understood and most overhyped place ever. OMG MY HARDWARE won't run, what a bunch of crap.

Just to clarify: why is the sabertooth bad? only 2 card sli, lacking sufficient VRMs for proper Overclocking, over priced when it should costs a lot less, cheap marketing gimmicks with a plastic cover, and so on and so forth.[/QUOTE]
Never gunna do SLI or heavy overclock.
The number of VRMs doesn't matter. It is the QUALITY of the VRMs.
Plastic cover works well with 50mm fan.

I can't even argue with you, the two motherboards I listed, cost less and have great quality VRMs. Who says the sabertooth (with their TUF vrms) are so great. If youre getting an unknown manufacturers motherboard with a shoddy 4 + 1 vrm count, then sure you have to worry, but at this price point its all the same. Dude would you try to understand please? You're paying more for NOTHING AT ALL. An MSI GD 65 is a superior board in every single way to the Sabertooth and it costs LESS. It too has Military standard technology, and go to their website, IT IS APPROVED military standard. look at their mosfets and mosfet cooling, is superior to that of that bs Sabertooth.

and don't tell me about the reviews of the HAF X. reviewers are idiotic, that case isn't that great. Have you never owned a computer before, You should realize those ducts don't matter for anything. You want a better case? I'll show you dozens of better cases than that thing at the same price.

Just get the Corsair TX650 V2, it's better than the HX650, and should be more than enough for a single 480.

What are "better" cases?
Why is the Tooth so bad if I'm never gunna SLi or clock too high?

I also like the fact that the tooth has 5yr warranty.

Ok for power 750 is good for furtur. i had 2 480s @ 850core and i7 x58 chip @ 4.2. 750 was overheating but never shut off.
Now i like haf 932 because its setup beter for water, 360 rad on top pushpull was good, i moved to 700d .
If you like water, get a pump,rad,cpu block,fans tubes, fittings,gpu block (mcw80 or mcw60) on 480 700mhz stock to 850 core. thats what i had both on different cards.

480 better then 570. 570 cant overclock good trend to die. as for different 480 just get plain jane and use msi afterburner and u r set. The program works with asus evga all companys gpus.
I would build it for cheaper.

I agree with you,
msi p67a gd65 is a great mobo,
as for the pc case,I consider Lian Li a70f to be much more superior than HAF-X
