Best PSU for my build? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
thanks for all the replies, really really helpful but i'm still unsure lol ...I have talked to overclockers and they are happy with me returning the psu for a full refund, is it worth upgrading to the 850w just to be sure? and if 850w is completely future proof.

850 watts is a bit overkill unless you are overvolting both your CPU and video cards and have a ton of other stuff

If you want a 850 watts get a Cooler Master V850

if you can show me a system that (according to the OP's spec's) can PULL more then 650w from the wall under gaming loads, i'd like to see it biggrin.gif

I don't think that's what he was getting at.

meaning it's child's play for a PSU as high quality as the seasonic X biggrin.gif

remember most people rarely achieve TDP usage on a consistent basis even when overclocked. and high quality PSU like the seasonic X is designed to handle random power spikes when you go above its rated wattage. what this means is you can ACTUALLY use a seasonic X650 to power that system. biggrin.gif you wont have much OC headroom if you do tho tongue.gif

probably something more like these:

1 - TDP =/= power consumption so adding up the TDP given to these chips is a little misleading, especially with the gpu in SLI.

2 - the rest of that system won't use close to another 100w.

3 - an X650 would have plenty of headroom with this system, even comfortable amount if he has SLI 770's.

You're looking at around 400W gaming load draw with a stock 3770k + 770 SLI setup, so 750W is ample.
