Which power supply should I buy? - Page 7

post #61 of 64
It will not hurt to get a bigger power supply than you need if it is quality and the price is right. It will not cause power bill to be higher as the PSU will only use the power it needs. Even if you have a 1200 watt PSU and only need 400 watts this is all it will use. So you don't have to find the smallest power supply you can... find the best for the money even if it is a little bigger than you need.

Great guys. Two Fractal Newton R3s it is!

Took a full 2 days to decide.

Oh by the way, it says that the 800w and above are SLI certified, but will the 600w run two GTX 660s?

Interesting about coil whining on Seasonic and something on the R3: http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=65943&p=572473

600 watts is more then enough power for two GTX 660 cards

You got somethong on the order of 200-250 watts over what you need even with two GTX 660 and a CPU overclock
