Depens on what PSU´s they are post them and i have a look

Last Corsair is overblown and overpriced you can find better PSU´s for the same money or less

My rig has the FX8350 and it draws a lot although it has 8 cores.thumb.gif

haha now im confuddeld. I can see your point on maybe wanting another GPU for crossfire i mean i only save a tenner on changing from 650w to 550w so what should i do

if it is a small jump to go higher I would. would suck to decide to crossfire then have to buy both psu and gpu rather than just the psu.

If you are 100% sure you want crossfire later buy a bigger PSU if you are sure you are NOT going to crossfire just stick to 550 watts

Corsair has been very reliable for me. My GS800 has 4 PCI-e cables that if ever I decide to crossfire with more power hungry cards (2 6or8 pin pci-e cables) then I can and def have the power for it. Besides my advice is to read the reviews for each manufactuer disregard the angry ones and look for the reasonable ones that state why the purchase is not worth the money or how good the purchase is.

was looking at the bequiet! ones as ive seen a few at cheap prices or ocz ive got no clue at whats a decent PSU

will probably go for crossfire instead of buying a different card when i need to upgrade so i think the 650w will be best and for the extra £10 instead of £85 when i need a new PSU sounds good to me

Alsos do NOT buy XFX card their cooler is more useful as a oven then a GPU cooler

Are you mad? Their coolers are brilliant. My overclocked 7870 stays under 70° in a 18° room.

Just go with looks good to you. Everyone has an opinion usually based solely on their own experience. I looked around but since I have owned Corsair before and it proved reliable I stuck with it. I wish I could tell you for sure what to do but again it would only be my opinion.
