Which Deal Should I take?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Newegg.com has the Rosewill Capstone-750-M 80 plus GOLD for $84.99 and the SeaSonic M12II 850 SS-850AM 80 plus BRONZE for $69.99 after MIR. As the thread title states, I'm wondering which deal I should capitalize on. It only lasts for 2 days and supplies may be limited, so I need to figure it out fairly quickly.

The supply will be used in a system with specs close to the following:

CPU: Intel i5 4670k
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-C14
MOBO: Asus Gryphon Z87, Asus Maximus IV Gene, ASRock Z87M OC Formula, or Gigabyte G1 Sniper M5
RAM: 8gb DDR3 1600 or 1866 (G.Skill, ADATA, or Patriot)
Storage: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256gb and WD 1TB 7200rpm
GPU: HD 7990 or similar dual gpu solution
ODD: 5.25" Blu-Ray/DVD/CD
Case: Lian-Li PC-V354
Fans: 2-3 120mm w/ LED and 1 140mm

That should be everything of consequence. I'm fairly positive that 750w should be fine to run everything, but how much room would that leave me to upgrade later on or OC? With the 850w being bronze rated, how much of an improvement over the 750w is it? Also, feel free to offer up suggestions on the rest of my build (primarily mobo and gpu).

the capstone hands down. I really like my seasonic but the capstone is by far a better design. Origin is superflower and you wont regret going with a superflower

Also i recommend going with Gene.. Maximus line are very good boards

G.Skill tridentx would be #1 ram in the world at the moment. Always a good choice there aswell

but hands down the capstone is better then the seasonic

Final edit suggestion: If you can fit it, the noctua nh-D14 would be a nicer rig if you can fit it

I've heard good things about both, but the capstone does seem to garner a bigger and better support base. So, you think 750w will allow me to run everything and have some room for OCing and whatnot?

The Gene is definitely my top choice as of right now, but I just want to be sure the price matches the performance upgrade from the other choices.

Again, G.SKILL is my top choice, and after those persuasive words, I'll probably stick with it.

I don't believe that the D14 will fit. Last I looked the clearance in the PC-V354 is only 125mm rolleyes.gif

Thank you for all of the suggestions and advice...+1

I apologize i didnt realize you were going dual 7990 those are some power hogs. You may want to step up. If you plan to overclock them id recommend 850w min. Probably 1000w would be preferred for your rig. At stock they may do ok with a 750w:

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/radeon_hd_7990_review,8.html
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7990/23.html
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7990-devil13-7970-x2,3329-12.html


they take ALOT of power at 100% load. and ALOT of power when overclocked. If you plan to overclock your cpu or your gpu at all id recommend 1000w+. Although the increase in power consumption in SLI is not double of one card. So choose carefully but you may need to go bigger for SLI

If you want to stick with 750-850 watt you should probably drop down to a pair of 7970's which can still push upwards of 400w for one in furmark:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/6915/amd-radeon-hd-7990-review-7990-gets-official/16

SLI will probably take around 600w ish under heavy load on just the 7970 (so probably still recommend atleast 850 for whole rig)

you could always use one 7990 for now and add a bigger psu and another 7990 later with just one 7990 youd be ok

7990 is a powerhouse probably 700-750w+ give or take sli under heavy conditions (like furmark) and thats still not OC

You dont need that much power unless you have two video cards

And really i dont think its a good idea to buy a 7990

I have tried alot of dual core cards and i never liked any one of them

You would be better off with two video cards not one with two cores on it
