PSU suggestions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking for some solid PSU suggestions for my gaming build.

i5 2500k
Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3
8 mb ram
radeon 6950 (1 for now and might get 2nd later)
I am not going to use water cooling since this is my first gaming build


When I look at notes its saying 650 watts should be enough. I am trying to find a solid PSU under $80. I have been on newegg, tigerdirect, etc

I was leaning towards the CORSAIR Professional Series HX650 (CMPSU-650HX) at $90 on newegg.

The HX650 would do great but it's rather overpriced.
You could consider http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371049 -- it's a lot more wattage than you need but it's a great deal.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371048 is also a great deal.

The HX650 is your best choice for that price, which after rebate.

I was looking at the Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 and noticed it didnt have the MODULAR CABLE. Does that make that much difference for a gaming pc?

As long as you have good cable management then it won't make any difference other than it will take up just a little bit more room.
