Will this be sufficient?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi I read about the OCz GameXStream 600w and it recieved excellent reviews and was reccomended by many people. However, when I read about it on these boards many people are mentioning how it "ripples" and shortens the life span of your components. However, this "ripple" happens at full load?

Here are the specs I will have:

OCz GameXStream 600w PSU ???

Asus P5K
C2D E6750 (July 22nd)
x1950 PRO vs. 7900 GS (Havn't decided yet)

Will this rippling affect me? This is one of the only choices I have for a good PSU around 120$. The local store I go to do not sell PCP&C PSUs.

The other options I have are the

SilverStone SST-ST56F Strider 560W ATX12V Power Supply W/120MM Fan Active PFC Crossfire Ready




Corsair HX Series CMPSU-520HX 520W ATX Triple Power Supply 120MM Fan 12V 50A Continuous 24PIN ATX Modular

Please try not to reccomend of Newegg or online retailers in terms of prices "Oh but you can get a Silverstone OP blah blah blah for 120$ your store sucks" it's not an option im in Canada and I don't do online shopping.

There's plenty of online retailers that ship to Canada.

And your computer is not going to be power demanding at all.

I checked the stats on my battery backup (it tells the current wattage pull off it, so it might not be 100% reliable but it will be close), and my sig rig only takes like 200 watts of power, and I have more stuff running then you (same gfx card, similar CPU, but I have 4 hard drives and the RAID card and probably a ton more fans then you)

I don't know if this is hard to understand or something.. the store I go to can price match, and has better prices than any canadian online retailer, such as NCIX.

However, they don't have the huge variety of choices like the retailers do, but I don't mind because what they have is sufficient enough.

And lastly, I'm not lazy. I would RATHER drive to the store and buy my own parts and know how I'm getting them, I don't understand the people who order stuff when they can just take a 10 minute drive and get it themselves.

Whatever floats your boat.

Anyways I decided on the 600W OCz GameXStream.
