need help building $1500 rig! - Page 2

post #11 of 19
For $1500 there is so much you can do whether you decide to go with an Intel LGA1155 PC (now) or take on AM3+ anticipating the FX-Series CPU in July-August. I appreciate that we have suggestions for both sides, but let's suggest in peace and avoid conflict with each other. Okay?

I notice that almost everyone is recommending an 850w PSU. You do NOT need an 850 psu. A 650w (550w would be even better) would suit you just fine. If you want to SLI two gtx 580's, then go for a 750w. That should save you some money.

Recommending because its a good deal... Not because his system requires it. 850w is a great spot to be esp when you get into multi gpu usage. You never want to take the risk of under powering your equipment.

My rule of thumb is for 2 cards, if it's anything more than 2 560s, take a >750W for sure.

Sorry, I don't want to start an argument or anything, but I just don't see how it is a "good deal." The TX650v2 is $110 CAD. The TX850v2 is $150. That's a $40 price difference he could apply toward something else?

Even if he does go multi-gpu, he is *most likely* going to go GTX500 or Radeon HD 6900 series. Both of those choices for Crossfire/SLI require only a 750w, which (if he plans to go the Corsair TX series route) is actually the same price as the TX650v2, so still $40 cheaper.

Aren't we supposed to help him maximize his performance to dollar ratio?

I understand the need to be safe and have lots of headroom, but at a $40 premium I don't see it being worth it, a 750w would be just fine.

The TX850v2 is $119.99 after MIR, Really at a loss where you find this $40 price difference and how you suggest 200w less for 10 bucks less is actually worth the $10 less.

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...rsair&promoid=

here you go... $119.99 no rebates needed...

Not here to argue either =) 750 watts 'maybe/should' be enough ... but I wouldn't risk my components especially if the OP is planning to OC and play games or benchmark etc. This system is running around 675 watts minimum according to Antec calculator. If he going to start OC his cpu and gpu it will well reach into the the 750+ watts range ... i would rather keep myself safe then sorry....

Also if you are Canadian look at www.directcanada.com they are usually cheaper than NCIX or memoryexpress when things aren't on sale.
