600W enough?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to double check and make sure I'm shopping for the right size PSU. Here are my specs:

CPU: 2500k
Mobo: MSI Mpower Z77
RAM: Mushking Blackline Enhanced 4x4GB
GPU: GTX 670
Pump: thinking mcp655
Fans: 6x120mm in push/pull, not sure which fans yet but will be looking for something quiet. + 3x140mm case fans
HDD: not 100% but thinking Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA3 64MB Cache 3.5
SSD: 1 Sata 3 SSD 200+gb
CD drives: Blu-Ray Reader & DVD Writer Combo Drive

I think that covers everything. I would like to add a second 670 in a month or two. I've used the psu calculator and am getting around 580W recommended. Just wanted to make sure this number is not way off.

Yeah, that's around right, assuming decent but not really high overclocks.. Most 600W won't have four PCIe connectors so you may as well get 650W though.

Which 600 watts are you talking about?

You can often find just as good or better for the same money

Rebrands are often cheaper

All XFX units are rebranded Seasonic units and so is the Be Quiet Dark Power Pro P10 and the fully modular Cooler Master V

If you want a fully modular mid range Seasonic unit pretty much your only option is the XFX XTR

High end Seasonic units almost only starts at 650 watts which is way overkill for any system with one video card so little point in buying one of those

That definitley helps narrow down the search. I was looking at XFX but the inventory is low in the stores I've checked, at least for 650W, and I think 750W might be overkill! I'll have to keep an eye out for an XTR seems like one of the better for price/ performance from what I've been looking at.
