post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I plan on purchasing the Antec True-Power Trio 650W. I wanted to know what you guys think of this PSU and if its a good purchase.

Also, do you think it will be sufficient for 8800GTS 640 SLI?

Sytem build:

-DFI nForce 590 SLI
-Athlon X2 5600 (Plan OC to 3.0Ghz)
-Nvidia 8800 GTS 640 (Plan OC to 600Mhz)
-G-Skill 2GB DDR2-800 (Plan OC to 2.0V)
-Western Digital Caviar SE 160GB SATA 3.0Gb/s

Thanks.

That would be quite over kill.

I'd say 600-700 would be PLENTY sufficient.

That antec is a good choice for your setup.

for a SLI set-up go with the PC Power & Cooling QUAD 750 Silencer, the best out there for SLI

I'd like to stick with Antec, thats why I'm asking about this specific product, and anything 700w and over is over kill, not to mention much more expensive.

PSU's dont run efficient if they are undersupplied...and at 700w or higher, it will be. Look at my setup above.

My only concern is if the Antec True-Power Trio 650W will be able to run two 8800 GTS' SLI'd?

700W isn't needed for 8800GTS SLi, though good amps are. Just make sure that the PSU you get is at least 620W and has good amperage.
post #8 of 10
here is a list i compiled, with some modular psu's as well. all will run 8800gts sli with no problems. personally i would go with the corsair hx620,seasonic, or the silverstone's.

don't pay that much for that cpu, all amd's max around 2.8 to 3 ghz, so get the cheapest and a decent cooler and clock it up

pay about $60 for a Brisbane x2 3600+ and get the same performance
