What size PSU am I looking at?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
CPU: i5 2500k
MoBo: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
SDD: 32gb OCZ
HDD: 7200pm 1tb Hitachi
RAM: 8gb Gskill Ripjaws @ 1600
GPU: radeon 6950 (x2?)

2x 250mm LED fans
1x 120mm LED fans

CM 212+

I'm not going to be doing the 2x GPUs right now but probably down the road a bit.

What size PSU do I need to get?

If no dual GPUs atm, get a 450-500w, if dual GPUs, maybe a 650w.

A good quality 650w PSU would be perfect for CF 6950

Here's a few I can think of:

Corsair TX650V2 (same internals as the XFX PRO I believe)
XFX Core/PRO 650w
XFX XXX edition (AFAIK all XFX have seasonic internals)
Antec New TP-650

i would go with a 750w for future proofing, and you should also consider a bigger SSD, i have the same 64 GB version and i have 28 gigs full with win7 + Nvidia drivers

Only thing I want on it is Windows and drivers. I might look at like a 40gb

isnt it best to keep SSDs under 50% full for max performance?
