All things in their proper order.


That link was helpful, thanks. How accurate it is for this rig though? The calculator does mention a dual GTX580 setup, but I imagine the SOC variants pull a little more juice than their vanilla counterparts. I'd probably want to throw in an extra 100W for that reason alone, meaning I'd be pushing the limits of 850W, and would probably opt for the HX1050 simply for the added headroom anyway.

Noise when idle is a non-issue for me btw; If my rig is left on, it isn't left idle. When my computer goes idle, it goes off - for security, safety and efficiency reasons.
Get the AX750 or AX850

These recommendations INCLUDE headroom and overclocking room. On a system with typical overclocks, you won't be pulling more than 80-90% load on the recommended PSU during STRESS TEST conditions (LinX+Furmark+HDTune), and only 60-75% load during heavy gaming (Crysis, BF:BC2, Metro2033, etc.), and only 10-30% load during idle/light usage situations. This is plenty of headroom. Your PSU will not wear out. It's not a tire. However, I do *strongly* recommend sticking to power supplies listed in OCN's Official Recommended PSU list.
He could get the AX750 I just thought giving it a bit more watt perhaps when geforce 600 series or AMD 7000 series came around perhaps be a bit on the safe side than get the AX850.

If I understand you correctly, you're suggesting I use the AX850 because I don't need the extra 200W offered by the HX1050.

I appreciate the input, but if you want to convince me that this rig will benefit from me spending 50% more on a similarly graded power supply with a lower output, you will need a better argument than 'You don't need the extra 200W'.

If my understanding is incorrect, and there's some other reason why you believe the AX850 will be more suited to the rig, you're welcome to share your reasons for switching it in.

Hell take your Corsair TX750 and you'll still be able to run your system money saved congrats.

Your paying 50% more for a seasonic power supply yet rebranded though.
Get the Seasonic X-750 or Seasonic X-850 but yeah your Corsair TX750 would even suffice your setup with overclock room to spare.

Not an option. I have several reasons for keeping my current rig intact, and postponing the purchase of another power supply for a few months is not reason enough to ignore them.

Except that I've negotiated it down from what was already a sale price, so I'm getting it cheap. Besides, I'm still more than $300 under my initial budget, so I wouldn't mind if I was paying a few extra dollars for a beefier PSU.

When it comes to power supplies, I prefer to make sure that the PSU in a rig has much more grunt than it needs. I understand there's a tradeoff between component cost and performance, and I also understand the law of diminishing returns. But in this case, the savings are minimal to nonexistant, so even if my rig never needs more than 80% of the power offered by an 850W PSU, I'll still have peace of mind.

I appreciate your input, but when I consider all of the relevent factors, the HX1050 still seems the better option.
