Power Supply Recommendation

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am looking for recommendations of a power supply for the following system:

Core 2 Duo E6600
EVGA 8800GTX (possibly get another for SLI later)
ASUS P5N32-E 680i


I have been considering the following power supplies:

Thermaltake W0106RU 700W:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153039

OR

Silverstone SST-ST75ZF 750W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256006

I do not see much difference between the two (except that the silverstone is apparently SLI ready for the 8800gtx's according to http://www.slizone.com/object/slizone_build_psu.html)

Any advice/recommendations of other psu's would be greatly appreciated.

For about the same price of the Silverstone, you could get a PC P&C 610 or for about 40 bucks more the 750.

They are sturdy, powerful and reliable workhorses.

Nope... same for the 750W

The PCP & C 750W isn't "certified" for SLIing 8800gtx's (neither is the therm i linked though). How big of a deal is this? (i feel that the PCP & C will have more amps than the silverstone).

thanks for the quick response!

im pretty sure this one is certified for sli 8800gtx's

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703007

quite expensive though, i think the 750 i linked might sli the gtx's cause of not having multiple 12v rails and what not. better let someone else answer that one

As far as I can tell "SLI certified" is a marketing gimmick.

you want:

Watts and Amps: the PC P&C is 750W with 60A on the single 12V rail.

More than enough.

I agree with ^^^

But if you have to choose between those two, I'd say the Thermaltake. I red an article where the 750W version ran two 8800 GTX in SLI. Except that one is only 700w.

But if you're considering a budget of well over $200? Then go for the PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W. Best money can buy.

Yeah, I went with the PCP & C 750W, it seemed very well worth it for an extra $75. Thanks again for the recommendations.

Question, I plan on having Dual 8800GTX in SLI or some sort of QUAD sli in 1Q 07. Does the 750 Watt unit have 4 Power Supply connecters? TWO for each 8800GTX?

Any suggestions on a 1KW. I noticed BFGTECH has an affordable unit?

Read the post in the news section on PSU's. Recent test determined that the average Maximum peak W's used for a total system was around 450W.

With the way GPU's are going now, next year there wont be a CPU that can handle an SLi setup, let alone a qwdSLi. That said, save your money, a 1kW PSU is overK1LL.
