Stick with my current power supply or downgrade?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hi all, gonna be downgrading my system here soon to a 3570k and a single gtx 570 or 6950, 2 ssds, no mechanical drive. so i could probably run that on a 450-500w i imagine. Currently i have the ax850 which would be overkill for that of course. Do you think it would be worth it $$ wise to sell the AX850 and get a power good power supply that could run the new rig? Not sure what the 850 would sell for nor what a good (80+ silver or better and modular) power supply for the new rig would go for. Thoughts?

I say stick with what you have. Selling your PSU used and buying a lesser PSU new will probably be a wash, financially. Don't downgrade unless you can get a significant portion of your money back.
