MSI Cylone or Asus DirectCu 6850? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
What I can buy is:
SEASONIC SS-760KM GOLD
COOLER MASTER SILENT PRO M850
Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2EU

If those are your only options, I'd go for the corsair. I'm not sure about the specs right now (I'm on my phone, so it's hard to check now), but it would give you more headroom over the seasonic, and I trust corsair as a brand more than coolermaster.

OK. Thanks alot! If I choose to take two 6850 will a good 650-750W PSU be enough?
post #14 of 19
I think that should be enough. Personally, I opt for more power rather than less just so I have some extra power to play with when overclocking. That being said, I'd go for the upper range of what you're looking at (750w rather than 650).

Also, what sites are you able to order from? I feel bad recommending products that are unavailable to you over and over.

I will look for a quality 750W PSU and will probably take MSI.

The 6870 will need a bigger and more expensive PSU. I am not really sure, that I need so much video performance.

The difference in power usage between the 6850 and 6870 is negligible, so that shouldn't be a real concern when choosing between the two. You can use the same psu for either one of those.

Also, just based on the stock clocks and coolers, you'd be better off with the 6870 for the overclock that you want to achieve.

If you do get the Gigabyte for some reason (my reason is that it was on sale for $159), don't get the factory OC-ed one...I believe the voltage controller will limit you, whereas the non-OC one with the same dual fan cooler can OC higher.
