1050W enough for 7970 trifire + 2600k?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As title states. I'm working my next build and i'm about to order the PSU. I'm currently considering either the Seasonic X1050 or 1250 if the former is not enough. I will be watercooling these so I'm planning on OCing these as much as I can.

Newegg has both of these cheaper than ax1200 + 15% promo right now. Which is why I'm currently looking at these two only.

Thanks

If you have any plans on going with an LGA 2011 platform(which you should considering the PCIe limitations of SandyB) then you should pick up the X-1250 or something similar(I'd suggest the HCP 1200 or a SF Golden Green 1300 unit).. if you're gonna stick to SandyB/IvyB then the 1050W unit will do.

If you plant to OC as much as you can you will need more then 1050W just to be save.

I was thinking of jumping to SB-E but I was able to obtain a 2600k + M4E for $400. Both brand new biggrin.gif
