OP asked if HX850 was a good psu and if the price was good. I told him the exact same thing you did. Yes, its good. Price is also good. He also asked what he needed for dual psu, I gave him 2 links. Whats wrong that?

 

You didn't say that he won't need two PSUs. You made it sound like he would by answering that question. So, it looks like you think he would too.

He didn't ask if he needed 2 psus. He asked what he would need. Obvioulsly he won't need it for his single 780ti, but who knows what he is using it for.

Well if money allows (yes) I will have 2 290xs in crossfire lol, If not then just one will be ok I guess? Id like to be able to get the Cpu ( fx 9370 ) to 5ghz nothing more is needed on my end and as long as iam getting good fps in my games I don't see a need to use custom Bios on thos cards, I can max all my games with my Gtx 580 so iam pretty sure the 290 x is a lot faster then my 580. How do you know so much about Power supplys cables? Do you sell them or something? Iam impressed by your knowledge bro. thumb.gif

With that CPU and with one GTX 780 Ti, you will not need to overclock anything at all, not even the CPU (and yeah, the HX850 is way more than enough for the 9370 and a single 780 Ti). Well, actually, what resolution are you using?

 

Just being on OCN every day for 18+ hours per day has taught me everything I know. Plus, for some reason I became quite obsessed with power supplies just a few weeks after joining. I don't know why, but that's what happened. So, I sorta just fell into it. I'm glad I did though because it's damn near impossible to make an informed decision without having someone tell you what you need to know. If someone tries to shop for PSUs without any help, then they will be at risk of getting royally ripped off! I hate the PSU market for that. It's very dark (it doesn't attempt to give you any knowledge or information). heh So, I fight the the PSU market's darkness with all of the light that I have (knowledge and information). :)

lol! As far as the Resolution goes for now iam gaming on a Single 1920x1080 but plan to upgrade to either a 120 hz monitor or if 4 k becomes more reasonable in price I might go that route>? But for now its just 1920x1080-I can double-up on the monitors I have 2 of them but I don't see a point in doing eyefinity or surround ( gives me a Migrane ) id rather game on just 1 high res monitor. Its impressive I haven't seen someone with that much info on Powersupplys before! More power to you my friend. And thanks to all of you guys btw for your opinions. thumb.gif

It's a pleasure, PcGamer1977.

 

With 1920x1080, you probably won't feel the need to overclock at all, even with just one GTX 780 Ti.
