1st build PSU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
OK on my way to planning my first build and a PSU is something that i dont really know much about - beside more W can generally run more things.

So from a local supplier i have a choice of 3 that i have read are quite good but i am not sure which to go for, so i am chasing opinions fromOCN experts.

I have a choice of:

- Corsair HX-650
- Antec HCG-750
- Antec TP-750

They are all the same price ($139 AUD) so i am not sure which to go for.

Any help would be great. Even if different options were offered it would be helpful.

Thanks.

I suppose the Antec TP is in fact TPN(True Power New), in which case it's the best unit of the three.

But unless you're building a dual GPU configuration 750W is too much.. what's your intended build and where are you buying from(link the shop/s)?

Antec TP-750 thats the best unit out of the 3.

Good solid unit and being antec means you have good warranty and customer service

This is where im looking at getting most of my stuff from.

Looking at a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3, 960T, 8-12 gig ram, possible CPU cooler, case (up in case section if anyone wants to weigh in on this as well).

Not looking to upgrade GPU just yet as i think i might do this at Christmas. Not sure on SLI at the moment but i dont want to limit myself here either.

Oh and yes it is a TP-750 New

Add 6$ to your budget and get the Silverstone Strider Plus 750, it's an excellent unit, pretty much on par with the TPN in terms of voltage regulation and ripple suppression but it offers slightly higher efficiency and it's fully modular.. value wise is the best option around your budget.

In regard to the case options.. depending on budget, Bitfenix Shinobi(cheap), NZXT H2 or Fractal Design Define R3(mainstream) or if you're going for a high end I suggest a Lian Li Z60 or a Silverstone Fortress FT02.
