even with the classified, it properly doesn't even draw more than 50W more then a reference 570 and that's being generous.

They're the same unit so pick whichever looks more aesthetically pleasing

Alright thanks for all your help guys. I'm going to go with the AX850 and my maybe do SLI down the road or just wait for a single really fast kepler GPU.

I can bet money, that you will end up getting a newer faster card before you SLI those 570's.



Seen it before, and have done it multiple times myself.

I might do SLI if the 570 goes below $250.

Also running the AX850 on my sig rig, it's pretty much perfect. Chose that over the Seasonic since the Corsair has the longer warranty, was slightly cheaper, and is just a Seasonic rebrand anyway.

...And I'm overclocked to the max on basically everything. Just an FYI.

Honestly, I don't even know how to measure it. I'm guessing 500 watts for the GPU(s), 100 for the CPU, and 150 for everything else. So hopefully like 100 watts at least, nut dunno. But it's 100% stable.

Majin and Wrath have the perfect PSU for their rigs. The AX850 is more than enough with some headroom to spare with 2 570's SLI and will even handle 2 580's SLI. My Antec SG 850 was running both of my 580's just fine but I added a 3rd 580 so I upgraded the PSU.
