Antec EarthWatts EA-650 GREEN or Capstone xxx W

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to make some purchases for my PC that I hoped would not be required for my new build. Unfortunately my monitor and PSU went capoot relatively close together so I'm shopping for peripherals that I normally don't include. Trying to save where I can, but I don't want to short myself on the PSU.

I've been going back and forth with the Capstone 450W or 750W. Based on what I plan on initially purchasing, I believe i'd be fine with the 450W (3750k / 7850 or 7870).. but I'm hesitant that 450W won't be rather limiting in the future to be able to use it in my next build or if I for some reason decide to purchase a second vid card in the future (which is not likely).

Newegg has a really good deal on the EA -650 GREEN, it's hideous, but its a bit more wattage and has good reviews.. but it has two 12V rails. Seems like this would make it much more difficult to add a second card in the future? Anyone have any recommendations?

if you are tight on budget go w/ the earthwatts. you don't have to worry about rail balancing as long as you use the native pci-e connectors and not molex to pci-e adapters.
