650w vs 750w vs 800w (Quality x Power)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Which one is most recommended by you guys for this config:

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k.
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master V6
Memory: 2x4GB DDR3 1600Mhz Corsair Vengeance
Motherboard: ASRock P67 Extreme4
GPU: HIS HD6950
Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout

Planning to do some overclocking both CPU and GPU.

I can get this 3 for the same price:

Corsair HX650w
XFX Black Edition 750w
Thermaltake TR2 800p 800w.

A future Xfire possibility would be nice but not a must.

Thank you for your time!

In terms of performance and quality, the XFX you mentioned is by far the better of the three, but it's also a lot more wattage than you need, considering a good 650W can run your system plus a second 6950. The HX650 is a good unit but it's plain overpriced for what it is. You could look into a cheaper 650W unit if any are available wherever you're shopping.

Thank you! I can get the XFX for just a little more than a regular 650w. So I think I rather be future proof you know. Who knows what crazy devices they might invent next. So if you are saying 750w can run 6950 xfire and I'll still have some watts left then I'm super happy
