Recommended power supply? - Page 12

EVGA reference one costs $600. $45 more than palit reference one. and $20 more than palit non-reference.

do you think a reference card is still capable of a modest overclock? then i will get palit reference card instead of the palit jetstream.
i wish i could get the asus directCU, heard a lot of good about that card and asus in general.

If you card breaks or there is something wrong EVGA wont ask you 27 questions before doing anything they will just fix it or give you a new one as fast as they can sometimes even within the same week so yes palit may be cheaper but i dont think they can match the great EVGA customer sercive

Personally, I'd look at AT LEAST a 550 watt or maybe 650 watt from SeaSonic. The quality it top notch, the costs aren't too bad ($90 for a 550 on a non-sale), and on sale, you can often luck into a sale that will put a 650 on sale for $90 or even a 750 watt version for $110.

The quality of Seasonic is top notch, and since the power supply is the REAL heart of a system, I tend to spend a little bit more on a good PSU and use it for 7+ years without upgrading it. Often, I will swap out the CPU, motherboard, and/or video cards 2-4 times before replacing my CPU, so I usually go "overkill" once on it and never worry about it again.

Also, Original Sin suggested a 450W XFX power supply even for the HD7970 which uses more power than the GTX 670. I decided on getting an Antec HCG 520W power supply which was the one Original Sin also suggested.
However, you also have thousands of posts on this forum so I don't know what to do...
Original Sin IS the "PSU Editor"...

Its almost impossible to overspend on a PSU get a crappy one and it can blow your PC sky high or burn down your house in the worst case
I would rather over spend then under spend on a PSU any day of the week alway get at least 100 watts above what your PC will max use

After doing some research and reading reviews for you i think you sould go with a Kingwin Lazer Platinum or Super Flower Golden King they are almost the same PSU
Those are not cheap but you get what you pay for

It depens on the card some cards you really cant overclock a lot and some you can its what TTL calls the silcon lottery some chip are good others are worse its almost impossible to say
Last i cant stand the noise the reference coolers makes thats why from now on i will never buy a card with a reference cooler again

Heres a retarded question:

The ASRock Pro4-M does not support SLI, but it does support Crossfire. Is it still compatible with nVidia cards? (GTX 670) I am only using one card.
Can someone be kind enough to find this out?

I think the answer is obviously yes, all Z77 PCI-E x16 should support nvidia cards. But i don't know...
post #119 of 138
Yes all motherboards today do both nvidia or AMD if you have only one card installed. The only time you have to look for it is if you are doing more then one video card.

Here is the manual to the board

http://www.asrock.com/mb/manual.asp?Model=Z77%20Pro4-M

it only states about the crossfire not in single mode it basically is telling you that if only one card is installed you can use ether company thumb.gif

What do you think of the Antec EarthWatts Platinum 650W over the High-Current-Gamer 520W? Only $20 more for 80+ Platinum. Reviews seem to be similar for both. Any reason why it wasn't suggested to me before?
