Can't decide between PSUs 850-1000w

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Can't decide which Psu should i go? Will be going sli GTX 570 now and dunno what will i choose when 6XX and 7XXX series come out from nvidia and ati
also i could save a little bit on electricity since my current psu is 3+ years old and no 80+ rating.

Prices for me are HX850 5$ cheaper then OCZ and OCZ 10$ cheaper then AX850.

1 . Corsair HX 850 according to Johny
Performance10
Functionality9.5
Value 9
Aesthetics10
Total Score9.6

2. Corsair AX850
Performance9.5
Functionality9.5
Value 8
Aesthetics9
Total Score9

3. OCZ ZX 1000W
Performance 9.5
Build Quality 9
Functionality 10
Value 9.5
Total Score 9.5

Seasonic is not competitor since best aviable to me is X-760 and costs same as AX850.

Either the HX850 Corsair, Seasonic M12D or the XFX850W Black ED.
All the same!

What other options do you have?

Your current unit is more than enough for your system but if you went SLi you'd only need a 750w

Is HX750 available? There should be no need to go to 850W+ for what you are planning.

Yup it's available. Well IBT+Furmark my PC pushes ~500w of the wall currently ~420w with Vantage running. So if i add another GPU i will be pushing up to 750W of the wall which would mean ~80% load on psu.

I bought a Rosewill 1000w to power my two 6950's. Everything is overclocked and haven't had any trouble in Furmark. It's Neweggs brand so I thought I'd give it a go.
