OCZ GameXstream 850 Watts for (GTX 480 SLI)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well,i think the title says it all!!
i want to upgrade from an old gtx 260.
i was thinking two gtx 480 is about 400$ right now,
so nothing can beat it if i compare price ratio and performance ratio.
the only thing is,....yeah i know the heat is crazy on full load.
But thats not my concern...
Is my PSU enough???

I know its not the best one on the market,but its still 850 watts.
let me know your oppinion.
thanks.

PSU is enough but not with extreme overclocks and you certainly won't be able to run furmark on it. For stock/mild overclock it should be good, however I'm not so familiar with the quality of that PSU.

just an fyi... a 480 consumes more power than a 580 does... even much so when overclocked... A good 1kw should give you the necessary headroom to overclock without worry. A 850 would be cutting it close, but should work for general gaming

here are some charts from anandtech:

thx,those are good charts you've put up.
Im pretty sure the 560 ti in SLI take less power from the PSU than the gtx 480 SLI.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

As for the gtx 480,the special deal i could have for them is now (sold-out).
So ill probably go either 560 ti in SLI,a single gtx 570 or 580.
Thx all,
Im sad that my gtx480 deal is sold-out,...but ***** happen .

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Good week-end all.
Peace on earth.
(Yeah,im a dreamer lol)

This is the PSU specs:

Sorry to hear the 480 deal is gone but you may be better off with SLI 560s, 570s, or 580s in the future. The 570 is comparable to a 480 since they have the same amount of CUDA cores, only difference is clock speeds, bus width, vram, and the nice cooler on the 570 (which is a lot quieter I must say).

Thanks a lott for those Specs about OCZ GameXstream.
I appreciate.

As for the gtx 480,well sometimes i wonder if things just dont happen for a reason,i mean,...since they drain so much power from PSu and get always near the 90 degree celsius,maybe those 480's just wasnt for me in SLI.

And for the future ,yes definetly those serie 5** sounds like a better buy.
Ill try to find deals for the 570,580 and 560ti.
I found a PNY gtx 580 at 379$ CDN after mail in rebate.
Which is pretty awesome,but ive head that their memory burn on that particular brand/card.

but they give a lifetime warranty,maybe at that price,its the best banf for the buck.

If anyone have better offer on vid cards,dont be shy post em here!!!
thanks everyone.
