PSU Recommendations - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I would say get the ax850, or if you want to future proff your rig, and never buy another psu, the ax1200. I ran the **** out of mine, and it worked great nonstop. Depends honestly on how far you are planning to upgrade the system in the future, like you mentioned. I like having more, and not using it all, then not enough, and having to spend more time and money fixing it. Good luck with the build.

The Aurum Pro 850 makes an excellent choice, best in class connectivity and it overloads like a champ.

I'll look at the AX range though if i update PSU's i'd like to get something i'll be able to keep till it dies/not run into this particular problem again (really this is the first time i've ran into the "not enough power" problem tongue.gif)
i dunno how hard it'll be to flog off my TX750 to someone though considering i've done single sleeving too it (and it was my first time so it's not the best job tongue.gif)
Might just stick it in my HTPC/NAS, its already run out of SATA connectors and i might need more space soon >)

well, lets take a look.

GTX580 = 245w so 2 of them is 490watts
the i7 3770k is 77 watts which brings the total to 567watts
lets be generous and allocate 100W for everything else in the system so we are looking at around 670watts.

there is really very little justification for you to go beyond a 750watt unit when you are talking about AX quality PSU's. an AX can easily deliver its rated power 24/7 and supply a peak power of 120% w/o any issues.

for an AX850, you'd need to use 3 x GTX580 to even begin to justify that level of PSU.
