new build psu needed

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Hi folks,

Im currently going to be starting a new build over the next few months, and wondering what peoples opinions on a psu for this set up would be:

core i5 2500k(oc to 4.5), gtx580 card, hyper 212 hsf, p8z68 mobo, - not sure about hdd/ssd yet.
(now over to the cases forum)

regards
paul

if you have a great amount of money to put on a PSU i would say 800w approxx will be stable with a OC cpu and gpu for say. and for the brands silverstone,sparkle,XFX and seasonic is pretty much the one i have experience with and work really great. but im the kind of guy who play safe i dont like too have just enough PSU wattage better be safe with PSU pick a good brand with a little more wattage .

800 is overkill for a single card setup
I'd recommend the hx650, modular, corsair, thin cables

Hi guys thanks also for your swift responses - same as my other post on cases - 100 gbp is a bit much, i was looking at ocz 600w @65.50, thats pretty top of my budget for a psu, if i add more money to the psu then i have to save that money from another component, - ie graphics card or i will have to omit my ssd altogether.

The ZS is the best unit there, not a great one though... this is consideraby better, and a very good deal at that price.

Drop the 212, it's trash.. go with this, a whole different ball game.
As far as SSDs go the M4 is your best choice since you're on a budget.
I'd suggest picking a Z77 board as well, and a 7950 instead of the 580, better in every possible way for a marginal cost difference(at most).

ok, i value your opinion, but why is the 212 trash? im not meaning to start a war, im just interested in your reasons, i know nothing about any of this gear, i like the look of the thermaltake but tbh, they all look the same, also the same with the mobo, and the graphics card, why do you not recommend the ones i suggested?
The graphics card was the next forum i was going(aswell as try avsim)

The 212 is trash because it's a cheap, inefficient HDT solution... the Thermalright(not Thermaltake, Thermalright is one of the biggest players in the business, one of the few innovators along side Prolimatech and a few others, like Noctua more recently) True Spirti 140 is a toned down version of the Thermalright Archon, it's an excellent cooler for the money.
I suggested a Z77 mobo because(as its name implies) it uses a new chipset, designed for IvyBridge(the successor of SandyBridge) which will be launched in the following days.. it functions equally well with both generations, it's superior to the Z68 in a few ways... higher memory clocks for one.
7950 over 580 for obvious reasons.. it's a superior GPU even at stock clocks, it overclocks better while consuming half the power and generating half the heat of a GTX 580.

Hi unoriginalsin, thanks for the reply, my apologies for not getting back to you sooner,

Whats "hdt"?
Im not planning another upgrade for 5 years anyway, so with that in mind am i still aswell getting a Z77(suggestions here would be nice).
Ive read that although the "war" between nvidia and ati is fairly large, ive always thought that the way the gpu works in nvidia - its more suited to fsx than what the ati's are.
