PSU for build

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As some of you may know from my other topics, I had a DOA card. And since my paycheck this payperiod had a lot of OT on it and I am impatient~ I thought about jumping the gun and getting a 2nd GTX 560 ti and when my RMA returns - do SLI. Since I have built with a small PSU(430watt), I know I will have to upgrade. My question is, to what? I have heard 750/800watts. So I have been looking at these two:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139009

What would you suggest? I would like a little head room, but I doubt I will need to upgrade anything for a while, if anything just OC my video cards if they start havign issues running anything.

Motherboard: MSI P67A-G43 (B3) (Not the C43 lol)
Processor: Intel i5 2500K (Intend to OC to 4.5)
Processor Fan/HS: CM Hyper 212+ (May raise my fan up alittle higher and do a push/pull)
Graphics Card: EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1563-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Ram: 8G Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz
DVD/CD: Standard Samsung OEM rom
HD: Hitachi 1.5TB, 7200rpm
Case: Thermaltake Armor A90 Gaming Mid-Tower(Have an extra fan installed in the side panel)

May get a SSD for OS/Game drive later on.

Take a good quality brand PSU and you should be fine with about 700 watt. The corsair TX 750 watt should be sufficient for your build and will let you overclock too.

If 750w is enough, it looks like the best deal that I can find is:

The Antec High Current Game is okay. Not a bad one, but there's better ones.
Ex: PC Power and Cooling Silencer 750w
or
Corsair TX750w v2

If you want modular get the Corsair TX 750M
or
Silverstone ST75F-P
