Just stick to good PSU manufacturers and you can't go wrong. And your new build isn't "that" serious wink.gif

My bank account says its pretty serious! tongue.gif

Exactly, go as high as you want on the wattage, but don't use two unless going for a workstation-type machine!

"Serious" would be if you were using two HD6990s and a GTX580 for PhysX in an SR-2 build, all under water, with an 8-disk RAID array. Then an ST-1500 would be justified.
Yep, a sub 1000W, but quality one is all you need! Corsair & Silverstone are your friends!

I'm looking into a different one now, if I can save a hundred bucks at this point thats golden this setup is costing me a ton. I always wanted to build something crazy though!

Of course if you do want a 1200W anyway, I've got one for sale.

It isn't exactly a budget option though.

I know that a 1500watt supply is way overkill for 2 580s. I know vega ran his quad SLI GTX 580, with a 990x at 5.1ghz, and all his video cards overclocked like crazy on an antec HCP 1200watt. He had his stuff sub-zero temps so he could overclock like crazy.

@Phaedrus...

I just looked through your thread (finally hehe) and it appears I should be starting at 850W according to the graphics cards I'm running.... You dont have the i7 gulftown listed (6 core) LGA 1366 socket. Does that pull more juice that your aware of?

Also i am running an additional RAID controller card for the drives, and 5 drives as of right now...

I think I'm looking at at least 1000W, and will probably go with a good 1200W just for headroom. Sound reasonable?

EDIT: Think I will use this one instead... Saves me 100 bucks http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139014

RAID controller and a Gulftown could bump up the wattage, yes (I have it listed as "Hexacore i7 - +75W").

The Corsair would save you $100 over what? My unit for sale is $250.

Over the Silverstar 1500W big boy I was looking at hehe.

Sorry dude, I would love to help you out but I'm going all new on this build

Another question since your poking around right now... what do you think of this RAID card for my build? I'm using WD Velociraptor 10K drives, 4 of them, you think this card will suffice or bottleneck?

I know nothing about RAID.


This power supply is better than new.
