750W, 6 12V rails, plenty of power cables for me, and modular. 100 bucks. I think it's what i'm after. A little more than my budget, but I may get lucky.
What do you guys think?


To get a bigger PSU will not be an issue other than it will be more costly. To go below the minimum than recommended will be an issue.

a solid 600W unit is all you need, what is your budget and where are you buying from?

In regard to the Rosewill Green 700W unit, it's only average, the lower output versions(430/530/630) are better smile.gif
The Fatal1ty 750W is not a bad unit, not a particularly good one either.. it's more or less on the same boat as the Green 700W unit mentioned above.

That XFX looks amazing. That may be the ticket.. Same price as the previously mentioned OCZ, modular to the extent that I need, I'd only have to plug in a SATA line, and 100$... I think i'll get that

I'd never even considered a XFX PSU.. They make great GPUs though. I had a 8500GT from them, and it was awesome, until it died from a power surge.. But it wasn't the cards fault. If I have the same experience with the PSU as I did with the GPU, then it'll be epic smile.gif

It's an excellent Seasonic unit(M12D), you won't have any problem with it.. but I'd pick the Lepa G 700 over the XFX XXX @ 100$, it's simply inaudible smile.gif.. and also an excellent unit(Enermax Modu87+ inside)

Grab a Corsair TX750 very reliable manufacturer. One of the best, if not the best.

They have an amazing RMA process. I have heard of stories where they will ship you a new PSU and when you get it, you can return your old PSU. I have also heard stories of them replacing entire rigs (with better parts too) because the H-series coolers leaked and ruined components

If you want modular you can grab this one, it is also 10% off
