My HX1000 is overkill

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I believe my HX1000 is way overkill and is a very large supply. I purchased it used have owned it about a year, I currently have someone interested in purchasing it off of me for what I paid for it. Is there any benefit in downsizing and getting a gold or platinum certified unit @ 850w or so? The HX1000 is just 80 plus certified.

750 watts can power your 7950 Crossfire setup just fine and even have a litte power left over

And yes you could save some money on your power bill if you picked something that is 80 plus gold or higher and better suited to your power needs

Is it worthwhile to sell it and upgrade to a more efficient and newer supply?

As i said you power bill would be a little lower both because you would have much higher efficiency and because you would run your PSU at a higher load then your HX1000

Short answer is i would do it because i am cheap and dont like to pay a dime more to my power company
