In any kind of normal usage you will not be pulling 700W...presuming your 743W figure is accurate for 100% load.

This is for gaming(i want a 3 monitor nvidia 3d vision surround setup), and transcoding(i rip a lot of movies, shows off my tuner etc)

never tried folding but i wanted to check it out at least, probably wont be doing that though.

The MAXREVO1350W got a great rating on hardocp but johnnyguru and even hardocp didn't like its voltage regulation during stress testing.

Price is nothing to me i've been saving up for this for a while.


New X-Series will up to 1200. released in q2 of this yr from what this guy said and they would be 80 Plus Platinum.

Two 560Ti's can be powered by a good 600w....

Your rig uses about 300-350w, at full load, much less at typical gaming loads. You could have easily gotten anyway with a lower wattage unit and still had silence or even fanless operation.

You really do not need a 1200w, but if you do go for one, get the Antec HCP-1200 instead of the AX1200.

Yeah, the 560ti uses no more power than my 460s, I'm pretty overkill with my 850w unit, why anyone would even consider a 1200w PSU for this use is beyond me.

headroom for upgrade, reduced fan noise, ability to run test equipment i have that take 12vdc, im an electrical engineer smile.gif

and really, im a fan of overkill hahaha

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

Enermax is better. No denying it.

I did my research, it is you that should watch this video especially at about the 9 minute mark on....

The Enermax is not better, FYI.

Also I figured I would get a much more quiet experience getting a 1000-1350W unit running at around 58% then a 750W unit running at 100% constantly. (what i mean by constantly is when im playing games on 3 monitors).

I also forgot to update the fact I want to setup 3 23" 1080 3d vision 120 hz monitors to use as a single monitor for games like torchlight/ and the upcoming Diablo 3.


your gonna need something a lot better than 560ti's to do the full resolution of 5760x1080.

Depends on what the OP is willing to sacrifice for 5.5-6Megapixel surround. 2x 560s could probably keep up with minimal AA, and slightly lowered detail settings in most things except say Metro2033.

Adding 3D into the mix? Forget it. Need more expensive GPU cards...Even SLI'd 580s would have problems and probably 590s in certain scenarios.

Your question is like asking what is better, A Ferrari or a Lamborghini. They are both good and they are both too powerful for what you need. Get a good Seasonic, or ernmax that is cheaper and has less watts. Don't sacrifice the gold cert though. All inefficiency is converted to heat.
Wahoo!
