Can't quite decide on a PSU - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Given that 2 OC'd 480s and an OC'd i7/920 can pull 700+ watts out of the wall... that is with a pretty efficient PSU, there is not much headroom with a 750.

There is actually. He's not running a 920 and the SB chips kill the 9xx chips for efficiency outside of the six cores.
750 would be plenty for 2 OC'd 480s and his CPU.

who knows maybe in future. But just to be sure 850w would be the best option in my opinion

That looks good, not sure how I missed that one. Not very high over budget either. (w/o rebate)

I guess I was exaggerating then on power consumption, 2 480's is a bit excessive and I'd never OC them anyway. I do OC my CPU so that factors in with higher voltage. (I try to stay lower than 1.44v)

Example would be 2x 560ti's at most then. (Power-wise) Obviously won't get 2 at once, but down the road I'd get another GPU.

I do value everyone's opinions, much appreciated.

650w will be fine as long as its quality.
