New PSU for single GTX580 system (light overclocking)

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Good evening,

I'm hoping you guys can recommend me the best possible PSU for my system below, granted that it costs a max of 120,- euros:

-CPU: i2500K (will be overclocked to a max of 4Ghz)
-Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2
-Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Pro3
-RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB PC12800
-Case: SilverStone Raven RV02-E
-GPU: Gigabyte GTX580 Super Overclock (max overclock to 900 Mhz)
-SSD: Crucial m4 128GB
-Harddisk: Samsung SpinPoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB
-DVD burner: Sony Optiarc AD-7280S

At the moment, I'm leaning towards the XFX 750W XXX BlackEdition PSU, but I have a few concerns.

-Is a 750Watt PSU overkill for the above system with the stated overclocks that I'll perform on the CPU/GPU? Or is a 750Watt PSU exactly right for that setup?
-How good/bad is this particular XFX PSU? There arent that many reviews going around, so how does it compare to Corsair/Seasonic?
-Preferably, I would always get a Corsair HX/AX or a Seasonic PSU, but there's quite a price difference: The XFX 750W XXX PSU costs 115,- at the moment, whereas I'm already looking at 135,- euros for the Corsair HX750.

Would love for you experts to help me out

Regards,

Zaph

If you want to SLI 850 other wise 650 is more than enough for single.

500w is fine for a single GTX 580 setup. 750w is a complete waste of money.

Where are you buying from?

If you're willing to spend 135 euros go ahead and get the Super Flower Golden King 550W, the best PSU on the market for any single GPU system, bar none.
If you want to save some money get a TT Toughpower XT 575W which are excellent units and discounted all over Europe at the moment.

I'm buying my entire setup from Azerty (Dutch webshop): http://azerty.nl/8-1073/voedingen.html

If a good 650W is enough I might consider the Corsair HX650W, it costs the same. Choices, choices...

With PSU's it is better to buy more than you need, although if your dead set that SLI is not happening ever with your system then a 750 would be fine. Although i would recommend the Corsair HX750 model over an XFX.

If you aren't going with SLI, just get a 650w, you'll have decent overclocking room, and since you said you are only doing mild overclocking, you'll be in the clear with some headroom to add additional fans and whatnot. You could even get away with a strong 550w unit.

It's even better to not waste money on watts you'll never use.
