HCG-750 750W Upgrade?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I'm wondering after adding all my components below if I need to upgrade my PSU. I have the Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 750W -- With the GPU / specs below -- What would you recommend? Or am I fine with this current PSU? I'm not looking to upgrade anything else. I just want the best PSU available.

Money isn't an issue.

The other thing -- If I do upgrade, am I going to have to re-wire EVERYTHING and re-do all my cable management because my current 750W isn't modular? 'Cause that would SUCK.

Thanks in advance.

You're fine with that, just don't try to put in a second 590

Thanks man!

In the future if I do get a more powerful card and need to upgrade. How painful would it be? Any work around so I don't have to re-feed all the cables and hooblah?

Or no?

Nope, you'll have to remove everything and do it from scratch.

If you wanted a second 590, expect to use at least a 900w PSU.

Check out the PSU calculator in the Power supplies forum for an exact recommendation.
