New Psu

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Basicly my psu just went up in smoke, quite literaly bloddy OCZ, but yeah i need a new one and im looking for some advice.
i was thinking of either a corsair gs700, or the TX650.
pretty much the same price but what one would perform better? and not die within a year.
im also happy to take recomendations on other psu's one that will overclock well and will support my sig rig.

Thanks.

+ also planning on overclocking further in the future.
+ I hear that the tx 650 is higher quality then the gs700?

The corsair would be a much better choice, however why 650?? I say your kinda in the middle lol

A quality 500/550w would handle your rig just fine and if you're planning to maybe SLI in future a quality 750w would do the trick.

here are a few I would recommend for a single 570:

XFX Core Series/Pro Edition 550w
Antec High Current Gamer 520
Antec True Power New 550
Antec NeoECO 520C


For a SLI I would recommend:

Antec High Current Pro 750w
XFX Pro 750w XXX Edition
Antec TruePower New TP-750
XFX Pro Series/Core Series 750w
Corsair TX750 v2

Here isa full list of recommended PSU's: http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...-supplies.html

Go by preference ie. semi modular, full modular or not at all, each of those above are quality PSU's.

One more thing, a high quality 750w is more than enough for SLI 570 even with overclocking, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Funny...my little ModXStreme is a champ.

Anyway. If memory serves the 650 is better quality, and will give you a hefty 100+ watt buffer over what you really need.

Basically...See the above post.

You don't want to skimp on your power supply, and if you want to overclock and possibly add or upgrade anything, you're gonna want a PSU that will be able to stay for a while.

If I were you, I'd invest in the TX850, you won't need all of this power yet, but it's a solid PSU and would be able to work with your system for a good amount of time.

TX850 here.

What is it with people and 850w PSUs?
That is more than gross overkill, its a waste of money.

Even with a full system overclock and SLI 570s OP isnt going to even need a full 750w unit.

I am extremely happy with my Xigmatek, and at $55 US I don't think you can beat it. At least for performance/price ratio. 5 year warranty as well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817815009

yes but more than likely at stock only, I doubt you'd be able to overclock you gpu's at all, well maybe a little.

750w is all you need.

Depends on a few other factors like what the rest of the system is pulling.
I would say no, just because if memory serves the 570 draws about 300w under load and SLI 570s would probably draw somewhere around 550watts.
