post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello I was wondering which one of these power supply is better?

I am planning on using a evga 790 sli board and EVGA 8800 GTS (g92) and maybe later use another with SLI but i want a future proof power supply.


Any information is greatly appreciated.

The Thermaltake one should do you just fine . If you really want to know which is better, the PC Power & Cooling is definitely better quality, Thermaltake is still good quality though

Stay with your topic. Both are good PSU. Thermaltake has 62A and PC&P has 64A. I would go for Thermaltake because of the price. Based on the description, a good 550W PSU is enough but with the 2x G92 GTS in mind, a 650W should be fine. Something like Corsair 650TX or Silverstone DA650.

You can even give more future proof by going 1K or 1.2K I can speak for the 1K it has soooo many conectors for everything,I'll never run out.

Not really good advice. He only needs ~600watts, so I would actually recommend picking up a 750w at most. The PC P&C is very good, but the thermaltake is fine. My friend has one in his rig and has had not issues whatsoever.

I have the PCP&C 860, it is an extremley good PSU. It's also noticeably quieter than the old 510 SLI, even though they use the same fan. This is largely due to the much better component placement inside the PSU.

I have the Thermaltake Toughpower 750 and I'm glad that I went with it over the PCP&C Silencer 750 that I was originally going to get. The reasons are that the TT is the size of a normal PSU so now I can fit a 120mm fan on the bottom of my CM690. The PCP&C was an unusual extended length and would have partially blocked off the fan area.

The other reason is that the TT has a massive fan in there..bigger than the PCP&C. I've been told by those who have A/Bed that the TT is, as a result, quieter than the PCP&C. The PCP&C is great for sure but I'm glad that I ended up with the TT, which was originally just because I got a great deal on it ($100).
