Seasonic X-660 or 760

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have the following config:
i5 2500k @ 4.2 GHz @ 1.28 VCore
6950 unlocked into 6970
1 HDD, 1 SSD, 4 fans, 1 DVD-RW
all on a Asus Gene-z
I have now a Corsair TX-850M which is overkill I know, but that would be fine. The problem is I can still hear the fan and I decided to go for a hybrid PSU.
The choices in my country are pretty limited (only Corsair AX and Seasonic).
The Seasonics are less expensive so I will go for them.

My question is should I go for the X-660 or 760. The latter comes bundled with peace of mind.
Currently I don't plan to OC beyond 4.5 GHz and I plan to leave the GPU as is, unlocked but no overclock (or maybe something small, like 900/1375).
In the near future, I will probably buy an Ivy Bridge CPU and the 7970 when it comes, but those should have more or less the same power consumption as my current specs.
Also if I do buy one of these PSU's I will be keeping it for a while (3+ years).

Any input would be appreciated.

You're saying you probably won't add another gpu.
So the 660 will be more than sufficient.

The X-660 will be more than enough for that setup. You could even add another 6950 for crossfire and still be fine. Upgrading to IB and 7xxx will still not use all that power.

May as well go for the X-560 instead (or Superflower Golden King/Kingwin LZP-550 if they're available.)

That rig would only consume around 400w DC full load.

Thank you for the input. Guess I'll go for the 660 then, just hope I don't have any bad luck to get one with coil noise or DOA or some other nonsence.
