NEED Recommendation on PSU Today !! PLEASE

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
What would be the best PSU for my system. My whole specs are below. I need something that won't be messy like my current Antec TP 2.0 550w. My budget for the PSU is about $110 +/- a few bucks. It can be modular or just sleeved. Thanks

True Power II 550w Power Supply
3.2ghz Prescott @ 4.0ghz w/ 1.5vcore
Asus P5WD2 Premium Motherboard
2gb 5400 XMS2 ddr2 Ram
eVGA 7900GT KO 256mb 500/750 @ 550/800
SB Audigy ZS Sound Card
Sony Dvd Rom Drive 16x
Plextor Dvd Burner 8x
Sony Floppy Drive
Big Typhoon w/ Aerocool Turbine 3000 Fan
2x Apevia 120mm 79cfm Fans

I'll 2nd that Enermax Liberty 500W. Otherwise an OCZ PowerStream 520W.

But I'd personally go for the OCZ PowerStream 520W above the rest of your other choices.

I agree you need to check your power needs, especially if you go SLI and want to overclock.

I can't remember who posted this site but I gave him a rep.

http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculator.jsp

It showed me if I decide to go SLI with my 7950GX2, I will need a 700 watt PS. Very good to know before hand. Notice that overclocking also increases the need for more wattage.

Sunbeam NUUO for sure. I got mine and it was amazing. The only bad thing is that is it was DOA. =(

Thanks for the opinions so far. I like the powerstream, but not enough because its past my price range, even $119 is pushing it.

@Wanker. Since you have the sunbeam, im curious about the SATA Connectors. I have 3 sata drives. Im wondering how many sata plugs are attatched to each connector?

Also, I see your sunbeam transformer , What kind of fans you have goin in there? You got Positive/Negative/Neutral Airflow?

Edit: Wanker, how come you are switching from the NUU0 tothe TP 2.0 ?. I have that now and its all messy

If you're interested in saving a bit on the power bill or pumping a bit less heat into the room I would recommend the seasonic S12 430w. It powers my system just fine with plenty of power to spare.
