FAQ: Recommended Power Supplies - Page 171

post #1701 of 6730
I'm getting a new PSU since I'm upgrading some parts of my old (currently signature rig) rig so I can use the old parts and current PSU for a web browsing computer, what PSU would be recommended for these new parts?

New parts:
CPU: Intel Core i7 3820 (will be overclocked as far as I can go with acceptable 24/7 volts, cooler is H100)
Motherboard: ASRock x79 Extreme 7
Ram: 16GB G.Skill RipJaw Z 1600MHz CL9
2 HDDs, 8 fans, will get SSD and some more HDDs once prices come down, will also get a GPU once more powerful GPUs have come out.

You need to be more specific with the VGA/GPU choice.

He will probably be using the 6870 in his sig rig.

Indeed I will be using HD6870, I already have the parts, swapping the PSU from this 500w should be quite easy, psucalc.net recommends 475w however this 500w Antec PSU is very old if that matters (~3.6 years) and with higher performance GPUs it recommends over 500w. (not to mention I will be using this 500w on the backup/web browsing computer)

Any decent 500W unit would be plenty.

What about when upgrading the 6870 to something better? I believe most high end GPUs are a bit more power hungry.

Really depends to what exactly you're upgrading to... but a good 500W unit is plenty for any single GPU graphics card

This is true. Most of the time, GPU manufacturer will ask for a higher wattage PSU because, well not everyone use good 500w units. A lot of what you can find at the store will be generic/bad units. I've seen a lot of Coolermaster 500/600/700w extremepower plus or HEC unit. They aren't the type i would recommend, but people will buy them because it's a 600w-700w unit and it's cheap.

Hey,
I want to add a 6970/6950 to my current,
now the thing is currently I have i5 @ 3.6 but I'm going to buy a new cooler and oc to 4ghz, does that count as a high end or not?
I got 1 hdd, and planning to buy ssd.

That is rather high-end yes, allthough you can always get "higher"

I wouldnt go CF on that PSU you have now tbh.
See first page of this thread and pick a good 750W PSU wink.gif
