Opinions on my new Build - Page 4

post #31 of 39
Only takes 550w to run a single high grade gpu...if you plan on doing SLI then yeah...you would need to go bigger. If you have a huge PSU you are just wasting

Sorry im new about those things.
Unfortunately, a PSU like the AX750/850 for this system is both a waste of money and a waste of power capacity. It's a little bit like taking a large grocery bag with you to the grocery store when all you're only going to grab a couple of things. Well, sort of. Even a nice 650W power supply is overkill (please don't look at my sig rig. hehehehe)

The reason why I have the HX650 is because I ran into an amazing deal that would have been stupid of me to pass up. With the system I had at the time, I wanted the HX450 (which is no longer available), but the HX650 was much cheaper than the HX450 at the time due to this insane deal.

If I would have purchased a brand new PSU for this system, then I probably would have gone with something like the 550W Antec TruePower New. It's a very high quality PSU for a low price. At least it is here in the states.

NVIDIA recommends a 600W power supply to power a system that has one GTX 580 in it, but that's concerning 600W peak-rated power supplies. Any quality 550W power supply that I would recommend is a continuous-rated unit (which means it's rated to continuously deliver 550W) which also means that it has a larger capacity than any 600W peak-rated unit.

However if you wanted to SLI the 580s, then I would go with the AX750 for sure. It would be right in the sweet spot for that.
It's a computer!

Well, technology is ever changing & evolving, sort of like the world at large. No wait, the world is certainly devolving, BUT it is changing. Scratch that. Generally, your stuff becomes "obsolete" once the next generation of stuff comes out. GTX 600 series (GTX 680's in SLI), Intel Ivy Bridge (3930K) etc.

Edit: You're quite welcome.

For all we know, it could be 6 months, or it could be 1 year.

However, let's think in practical terms here! The length of time before you need an upgrade depends on you, and you alone.

CPU: i5 2500k
CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 +
Motherboard:Asrock Gen 3 Z68 (PCIe-3.0)
Ram:8 GB G Skill Ripjaw X 1600 DDR3
HD's:Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2CCA 2.5" 128GB

Well as manufacturer i just like
CPU Intel
MemoryRam , PSU , CPU Cooler - Corsair
Motherboard - MSI or ASUS
HD - Seagate WD or Samsung
GPU - XFX,MSI,EVGA
