Is it incorporated onto the 560 Ti's which model has it started to be incorporated into the GPU chipset?

I saw a youtube video where a 500W PSU was powering a rig and its power draw was 150W. He then hooked up a 1000W PSU to the exact same rig and power draw went up to over 300W....
Hmm, you don't happen to have a link to that, or where I could find some more information comments about this?

I looked up some quick information on this, and if you take a look at this chart, it seems as long as the load is greater then 20% so 0.20*1350 = 270W I should be running at at least 80% efficiency between Wattage coming in through AC and Wattage seen at the DC rails of the power supply. heres a link to the site i found the info on.

Heres a link to Hard OCP's review showing experimental data for the Enermax 1350 W at 29% load, so around 390W AC, gets converted to 346W DC for a efficiency of 88.72%

So i think you guys sold me, I am just going to go with the SeaSonic X750, Corsair takes Seasonic PSUs and rebrands them anyway since some of them are OEM.

Is my decision fairly not retarded? hahah?

The Enermax MaxRevo 1350W is better than the Corsair AX1200.

Don't settle for those puny little psu's. Get the king of the hill, the king of 1200 watt psu's, get Antec HCP 1200. Its rated at 80+ Gold, 8 12v rails, a ton of protections features and so much more.

Thanks guys, I'll have to dwell on this some more then haha. That Antec looks really good though. Im high on Enermax and Seasonic right now though completely unrealistically though just because they are the quietest power supplies out there..

It's been incorporated in Nvidia GPU's for roughly 7 years now, if you wanted to have a dedicated card for Physx, you can use another Nvidia gpu and with the drivers you can assign it to be Physx only. With two 560 Ti's a GTX 260 would offer a performance upgrade in PhysX, anything lower than a 9800 will hinder it.

I'd go for the Corsair AX1200.

Nope, absolutely not. Please educate yourself before recommending something as crucial as power supplies to people.

Enermax is better. No denying it.
