I'm not really sure about that, XFX doesn't sound all that much of a reputable power supply brand. I know they make great graphics cards for AMD.

Antec to me is on about the same level as the Corsair.

Are you suggesting I should get a 650W PSU instead?

I disagree with Smoblikat about the XFX power supply. Corsair makes solid stuff (so does Antec).

I do agree you could get away with 600-650 watts if you wanted. The question is "Do you plan on upgrading this pc?" If you want to get multiple hard drives or get a second video card in the next few years, you might want to stay with the bigger power supply.

If you never plan on upgrading, you can use a 600 watt power supply. I like to go with a little bit bigger power supply than what i need, so i can upgrade in the future if i want to.

It's a question of how future-proof do you want your PC.

Oh for sure, I am decided on a 750w power supply even if I don't even come close to the load it can take. I may in the future put two GTX 570s together to SLI if I need to, but that will be unlikely because the 600 series might be out time then.

A single GTX 570 may be all I need until next upgrade, but its always good to have that little bit of extra power for reassurance.
