Good deal. Also, if I wanted to add another 290x and upgrade my CPU (Haswell?) an 850 would suffice? Just looking to future proof a bit. Figured I'd buy something that will give me headroom instead of having to buy a new PSU a year down the road.

If you want two 290x and overvolt them both then something like 1000 watts is what you are looking at

Have heard more then one say their 850 watts PSU would shut down with 290x cards overvolted

Again i am not a power draw expert thats Two Cables

Alright, looking at 1Kw units, seems there are a couple options: Corsair HX1050, Seasonic X 1050, XFX ProSeries 1050W, And EVGA 1000 G2 (on sale on the egg). Are the Corsair/Seasonic/XFX re-brands of the same thing (that's what I've read)? Of those what would be the better choice?

Corsair HX1050 is a CWT made PSU

XFX ProSeries 1050W is a rebranded Seasonic X 1050

EVGA SuperNova G2 is a rebrand Super Flower Leadex

Best 1000 watts PSU for the money right now is the Cooler Master V1000 and the EVGA SuperNova G2/P2

If you read carefully you can see the V is better in some areas and the G2/P2 in other areas

Since price change all the time its very hard to say which is the better buy at the time

What is the price on the V and G2/P2 right now?

Unfortunately, I'm kind of useless when it comes to the power consumption of overvolted cards. At that point, I just kinda shrug my shoulders and add maybe 100-150W just because I don't know.

My video card recommends a 400w PSU and draws 20 amps/110w of power.Everything else in my rig will be the same except for a replacement m/b next week. Two of my 1tb hard drives are actually in a powered external case so very little power draw from them. only phter peripheral is an xbox controller and the occasionally plugged in ipod.

 

The HX650 wasn't the top of the market, it was just a pretty good PSU.

 

Anyway, the 400W recommendation is for peak-rated 400W PSUs. The typical 400W peak-rated PSU would have a +12V capacity of only 288W, or 24A. Therefore, even SeaSonic's 360W G Series would be plenty for your rig. The HX520's +12V capacity is 480W (40A).

 

Check this out:

 

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_650_ti_review_reference,4.html

 

With one GTX 650 Ti under full load in their system, their PSU pulled 219W from the wall outlet. Their CPU was idling, so I have to add about 125W for the 2500K at 4.4 GHz. So, 219+125 is 344W, meaning that if the 650 Ti and the 2500K were both under full load at the same time, then the PSU would be pulling 344W from the wall outlet. This means that if the PSU is 85% efficient while pulling 344W from the wall outlet, then the computer is pulling 292W from the PSU. Your gaming power consumption though would probably peak at around 250-275W.

 

So yeah, the TX750 is quite overkill. The HX520 is modular, so I do recommend swapping. You'll be glad that you did. Plus, your average efficiency will go up a hair. lol :)

Thank you for the response, I was wanting to get rid of all those unused cables. +1

Also I got rid of the stock fan on the 650ti and used a ARCTIC Accelero Mono Plus VGA Cooler and I'm no running games at 30-32c so maybe that will help draw less power as well.

$210+shipping for V1000 and $170+shipping for G2 (after $20 rebate)
post #3340 of 6753
So 40$ less for the G2

in that case i would go with the G2
