Whats the Best?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
What is the best PSU for the comp. below? I would like it to have modular cabling and maybe a blue led but the led is optional. Budget is around $120.
Thanks.

EDIT: here's a MODULAR 580 HIPER type R psu for 99$ at xoxide.com. exelent and solid psu

Corsair HX520W

Great PSU. Modular ribbon style cables, no LED though.

agreed. go with the corsair hx520. it has more than enough juice for your rig. the modular flat/ribbon cables are easier to hide since they can hold their shape if you bend them.

i just got my corsair hx520 this morning and i ordered it yesterday from buy.com around 1pm for $99, $79 w/ MIR. not even 24hrs later i had it on my doorstep.

The Corsair or how about this one:

Thermaltake Purepower RX W0143RU ATX12V 550W Cable Management / Active PFC / 14CM Fan / Triple +12V Rails Power Supply 115/230 V CE, FCC, UL, CUL, TUV, and BSMI certification - Retail $110.



But my #1 recommendation will always be: http://www.pcpower.com/products/view...hp?show=S61EPS

Capable of 8800 GTX SLI and Quad-Cores. Way better than anything money can buy right now.

Anyone have a recommendation for me?

I plan on getting:
E6750 (OC'd)
8800GTS 320MB (OC'd)
2x1GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800
2x320GB Seagate Barracudas (Perp. recording)
2xOptical devices
Gigabyte P35 DS3R

Must be powerful enough to power these components and must be modular! Don't care about LED's, not getting a case w/ a window.

Thanks!

even if you go sli with the 8800's the hx520 will be enough. this psu is also very quiet. my old cooler master sounded like a wind tunnel. this one is nearly silent.
