Should i buy this power supply?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy a new power supply for my pc as i will have to replace my thermaltake litepower 700w at some point.
I was thinking to buy this. Will it be enough for my components(will add hdd and an ssd) and for future upgrades?

My pc build for now is:
i5 3570k 4.0GHz
MSI 770 Twin Frozr 1333/1924
8GB Ram 1866MHz Corsair DDR3
Asrock z77 extreme4
windows 8.1 64 bit

Yeah. This those parts you could grab the 450W. Depending on GPU volts (how much do they let you go over again on 770?), 650W to 750W for SLI.

Ivy Bridge i5 at those clocks and the rest is pretty low on power consumption and should be well under 150W.

that is a pretty good psu its future proof for your system you could probably go with a 450w but that wouldn't leave much room for future upgrades so the 650w antec should work out pretty well for you so i would say go for it smile.gif

i believe Seasonic is the oem for TP-650C

I plan on overclocking the i5 further when i get a cooler for it. With my 770 i can only do +12v which is like 1.212v frown.gif.

You have a 700w PSU now? Are you planning on adding a second card from this generation? Because the next generation of cards is around the corner and will be a new a process which means more performance per watt. A 700 watt PSU should be enough for any single GPU and any 1156/55/50 CPU.

Waste of money if you ask me.

Well many have told me that this is a crappy power supply as it is made by HEC and it isn't actually delivering 700w(peak) but 600w at 25c temperature which in the end will be even lower. That's why i need to invest in a new one which i will be keeping for atleast 3 years.
