Corsair GS800 Vs Corsair TX750

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'll be integrating a gaming PC into my current PC I have now by upgrading each component on a monthly basis (due to restricted income.) The first thing on my list is the PSU. My setup will hopefully look something like this:

CPU: i5 2500k OC'd to 4.2Ghz +
GPU: GTX560ti 448 Tri-SLI – or – GTX580 SLI.
MoB: Not decided on a motherboard but just consider a hungry top of the range one.

I'll start of with only one GPU then work my way up into SLI territory over the months.

As we speak, both the GS800 and the TX750 are in the same price bracket. Unless you can recommend me another PSU for around £80, which one should I pick out of the two?

Thanks! thumb.gif

These two?

Either one would be good for SLI 580's. It'd be cutting it close though on TRI 560 Ti's (448) I recommend SLI 580's though, better scaling. so might as well save some money and get the TX750. The GS800 can only do 36W more on the 12V

I would also recommend the Antec Earthwatts EA-750. I don't know what site you use but it should be around £75

Yes, those two. (but from a U.K site which are currently at the same price.) I forgot to mention, the TX750 is the V2 edition. I was simply going to go with the TX750 but when I saw the "gaming series" 800W for the same price, I thought I'd ask. thumb.gif

That would be perfect. It's a little better than the older version. So I would recommend SLI 580's and that TX750 V2 smile.gif You could OC your 580's as well

TX V2 is better than GS, but GS is fine. XFX Core at 650W and above is the same as the TX V2 except with a quieter fan at full load, and slightly different cables.

If you're honestly thinking about Tri-SLI GTX 560 Ti 448, I'd think about higher than 750W even though 750W really should be okay in any kind of realistic usage. Don't be skimping if you're talking three GF100 / GF110 GPUs, IMHO. A good value here is the Thermaltake ToughPower XT 875W at £90:

I think that mostly because the 775W model is sold out. Those x75W ToughPower XT are very similar to the Corsair HX series units, so great.
