Need help choosing a psu

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am building my new rig next month.
Gonna run a 3770K and a GTX 670. But i might add another GTX 670 if i see the need later.
Is 750W enough for that?

Corsair CMPSU-750HXUK 750 Watts PSU | Psu | Flipkart.com

Why is this called HXUK?

And how can this be available at 6.8K when HX650 costs 7k?

I also see this-
CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-750HX 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

What are the differences between them?
Which one should i get?

Hell even a 650w unit will handle things just fine wheee.gif. I really wouldn't go in for the HX650. Not worth it IMHO.

I'd shoot for this - http://www.flipkart.com/antec-ea-platinum-650-watts-psu/p/itmdcxzu4juh9cag?pid=PSUDCXVM3YCTZJ64&ref=bb914899-e87e-4884-a383-b39dd32592f2

Antec and corsair have pretty good power supplies too. You can have a look at a few of them.

HXUK costs 6.8k and HX costs 9.3k

As far as i can see, both are silver rated, and have the same wattage.
HX has 7 years warranty, where as HXUK has 5 years..

I am wondering what causes the price difference..

then the hxuk must be the older version with silver efficiency the other is the newer gold version then which they released this year

I don't know if they are confused, but i am definitely confused.

Antec EA650 Platinum looks good. It has 4 rails too. But the problem is, it isn't modular.

How much electricity bill can i save, if i get gold instead of silver? rolleyes.gif

Also, is it a really good idea to get multi rail instead of single rail?
