Need a PSU for Build - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I completely agree with CattleRustler. The Silverstones are my personal favorite.

Between PC 750W and DA750, I would pick PC 750 over PC 750 because of the price. Otherwise, I would pick DA750. Corsair 750TX is another good option of non-modular PSU.

well you could get the DA850 which will run the next gen GFX cards in Sli and still have headroom. Its only 206 dollars after MIR

If you don't care about modular, the Corsair TX750 is the winner (imo, a better PSU than the PC Power & Cooler Silencer).

If modular is a must, then the Silverstone DA750 is the best pick.

thus, modular or not.. that's the question.

For my gaming rig, I don't care much about modular, since I use almost every cable anyways. However, for my folding rigs, modular is a must.

To complicate things more, the Corsair tx750, Xigmatec 750(modular) and the Toughpower 750(two versions, non-modular and semi-modular) are all basically the same psu. Now if I were to get modular I would chose the Xigmatec for price or the DA750 for slightly better performance (mostly when it comes to ripple) and a bit more amps on the 12V. If modular wasn't a big deal, the Corsair hands-down if you buy from buy.com for price/performance.

That's a nice psu, capable of gt280 sli or 4870 quad crossfire. But, it is overkill if you don't think you will go multiple gfx cards. Stick to a 750W and save some money if you just get one gfx card.

Will a 750 power a water cooling setup?
post #19 of 19
A 750 can handle any current 2 card sli/crossfire with a little room to spare, except maybe the 8800 ultras and hd2900xts, including crossfiring the new 4870s. The monster gt280 will need as much power as current midrange (8800gts) sli so one would work well with plenty of overhead with a 750W psu including extras such as watercooling.
