Asus GTX 780 & Hiper 580W?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Hopefully a quick question.

I already have a Hiper 580W PSU and I am close to pulling the trigger on Asus VI Hero / i7 4770k / Asus GTX 780 OC II.

Do I need to replace the PSU? I plan to run at stock for around 6 months before getting a H100i and overclocking.

Thanks

Not the very best of the PSU to use with some big gun components with. I would replace the PSU, even if it was some place holder unit of ~550W like Capstone. Do you have any budget ??

Thanks guys, the new unit looks like its going to be the best option.

I think I'll keep the current setup to one side and have a play at OC'ing my E6600 a little bit higher.

I read a post on here referring to a "G2" PSU? but for the life of me I can't find it.
RE Budget: The plan is for this to last at least as long as my P5N-e sli / E6600 have (approx 5 years!) so I am happy to spend around £100 on the PSU.

Those woul be the EVGA G2 750/850 Supernova PSU's. They are nice as well, but if you plan to keep stock, then a good 500W unit is enough for that build
