Friend needs an 850 watt power supply

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a friend who needs a replacement power supply. Specs are:

Mainboard - GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD3
PSU - XtremeGear 800W <- it does exist, good luck finding info on it
Processor - I7-3930K 3.2GHz 12MB LGA 2011
CPU cooler - Asetek 510LC 120mm watercooler
Video cards - 2x MSI R7970 configured in Crossfire
Memory - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 2133 (PC3 17000)
Main HDD - (2x96GB) 192 GB primary HDD Kingston SSD MLC Configured RAID 0 Win 7 Pro installed
Secondary HDD - 2TB SATA III 6GB/s 7200RPM 64MB cache
3rd HDD - 3TB Seagate Barracuda
HDD Coolers - 2x Vigor Isurf II harddrive cooling <- Installed on non SDD drives
Soundcard - Creative sound blaster X-Fi Titanium

He just got the 7970s, and his old power supply decided to fry one of his SSDs. Now, I am pretty sure 850 watts is plenty for him. Now, his GPUs require 2 6 pin and 2 8 pin connector, but they have adapters, but I dont think he wants to use the adapters.

Now if I am not mistaken, this power supply has what he needs natively. Can somebody tell me from experience that this does have 2 8 pin and 2 6 pin connectors?

The NZXT Hale82 850W is a very good choice I think. It has the same internals as the Corsair TX V2 you linked, but it's modular and is cheaper.

Another option is the Antec High Current Pro 850W (normally a high-end but not top-end unit and overpriced) at a sale price of $135 shipped:

Thanks guys, I recommended the Hale to him. Looked up the reviews, and it has exactly what he needs for his rig.
