Meh. You do see that a lot between 650W and 750W models, or between 550W and 650W. Then it's not a huge deal to go the step up, if the difference is less than $10 or something.

While I appreciate the logic behind the OP's advice, I will probably continue to recommend 'overkill' on the powersupply. Then again, I'm a deal hunter and rarely spend what most people do on a PSU. ATX power standards don't change that often so a PSU should last far beyond the scope of the current build. There are a ton of monster single slot cards out there that require something close to 650w - 4870x2, GTX295, 6990, GTX590.

I'd like to see some cost saving's numbers crunched. For instance:

1) Person A purchases 700W PSU at START to cover future upgrades.

2) Person B purchases 500W PSU at START, after 1 year upgrades, purchases 700W PSU.

Between the electric savings over 1yr, and reselling the 500W - does Person B save money?

I would agree with this..

I know i am one off those people your talking about , but it was 650 TX shipped to me for $72 which isn't totally bad compared to whats out there.

I'm glad i have extra room for the future to run SLI 560ti encase one isn't sufficient for the games out there in a couple of years.

I think people should stop recommending anything without sufficient knowledge on it or at least provide a decent explanation with the recommendation.

And if Phaedrus recommends certain wattages or power supplies, listen to him.

Stop being logical. Everyone knows there is never a reason to upgrade anything.

That's the same thought I have. I mean, I have been recommending the XFX650w mainly because of the constant deal with the rebate and its modular system that does offer a lot for the money.

Isn't the difference between most decent 500 and 750watt PSUs often only about $20.

550VX 89$
750TX - 109$

Not to mention the diff between these after ship and MIR is only $4.

I'm just guessing that people are recommending 650+ PSUs in your scenario because the costs.

I understand completely what this thread is about, and i beleive the best way to help someone out is to recomend a psu that fits there needs and price range, but there are always a lot of great deals going on and not to recomend a power supply that is more than they need for a few dollars more i think is wrong, and also i like to think once one does start to build there own systems or ocing, it would be nice if they can afford an over kill psu for the future.

But no i,m not saying push one but atleast give a nooby a chance to deside for them selfs. I buy deals always have always will, but not crap just becuz its cheaper-i,m one who would rather put out a couple extra bucs to get something nicer and offers more.

I say dont push over kill, but dont make someone feel stupid if its what they want to do and buy at a great price. And yes i have seen plenty of this happen in threads.
