Cheap, quality 750w

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm gonna be running two 6950's (returning my 570) so I'm gonna have to grab a new power supply by the time I pick up the second one. I know I could probably get by with a 650w, but I'm looking at 750w's for added peace of mind.

I was originally planning on getting a nice fully-modular SeaSonic X750 or a Corsair AX750, but my budget may not allow for it. I was considering the TX750 and the TX750 V2 - they're not modular, but they're a lot cheaper.

Newegg has a deal for the X750 going on right now, but I can't order for another week or two. Am I safe with the TX models? Or should I save up the extra $20-40 for a fully-modular (or even semi, the HX750).

Got an unused Antec TP-750 Blue right here for $85.

Not to support this (i do tho ) but the Antec TP-750 is a hella nice PSU. I have one and it can juice up everything i connect to it (one time i even had two different PCs, one was my sig rig, connected to it, and it still powered them as if they were nothing)

Was about to recommend it myself. Semi-modular, hella nice construction, and if the PSU is at the top, the blue light is wicked cool

And even new, the AX750 is more expensive than the TP-750

Hmm I may consider that Antec model, if Phaedrus can wait a week or two

Modular isn't extremely important for me, but it'd be nice. Even a semi-modular would help though - I've got a bunch of spare power/SATA connectors pooled together on the bottom of my case (probably doesn't effect airflow much/at all though, just a bit messy looking)

Bet he can, i made him wait like 2 weeks before i bought a keyboard off him

There are other options, but few near as good (or hella cheap) as the Antec.
