Also since I am not really sure of CM's PSU quality, should I instead get a Seasonic X 660W Gold for 168 SGD or a Thermaltake T.Power ST 650W Gold for 145 SGD?
(I really do not mind forging out a few more bucks for a more reliable PSU (though I Know CM PSUs are still of good quality)

Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 600w has 48A on +12v rail. 576w (48 x 12 = 576w). in fact you could go for a lower rated psu and save money. any quality 550 - 550w psu with atleast 40A on +12v rail would be sufficient

The Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 550W with 42A on +12v rail (42 x 2 = 504w) should be enough.

http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6868

The Seasonic G550 80 Plus GOLD rated psu with 45A (45 x 12 = 540w) would also be more than sufficient. comes with two (6+2 pin) PCI-E power connectors . can easily drive a 300w graphics card like the GTX 690. so a single HD 7950 is no problem thumb.gif

and yeah go for the Sapphire HD 7950 OC with boost. good dual x cooler. excellent price perf.

Where do you shop in Sing? I'll be passing through there in a bit, and I might pick up some hardware.

There's an IT mall named Sim Lim Square. I am getting the card and PSU from Fuwell International which is a pretty reputable IT retailer.

interesting info.

with the way it looks in the slow mo vid the radeon card is rendering the same frame twice and counting it as a new frame. almost like cheating?

FINALLY!

curious to see it tested among a few more games to see if fps took a hit.

Hi, if you're getting it from Simlim sq, why don't you look at Powercolor HD 7950 PCS+ ? I've seen it going for about SGD$394 smile.gif
