And we can't really predict how long you'll need this PSU before you have to upgrade to a higher wattage. That PSU will last a good few years though.
doesnt OcUK tend to make you use the next day delivery by charging you £10 on shipping for something that heavy

Yup, £8.24 is the cheapest P&P available (Citylink nextday only).

Currently it's a toss up between a VX550 for £55 or a TX650 for £65. An earlier comment said the VX550 offered more like 600w, so would it be fair to say the TX650 would offer more like 700w? TBH: 550 is cheap option, 650 is the safe option right? (well in my budget anyway)

I don't think nehalem has any different power connectors GREAT! (as this is most likely my next build, i'm waiting for DDr3 and next intel processors to go mainstream, so it would be good if the PSU could cope with this combo. I may go for DDR3 & E8200 & OC in the mean time, if i get fed up of my crappy Athlon X2)

TX650 is only £63 inc. P&P at dabs, so i would buy it from there.


So, i reckon TX650 @ £62.25 from Dabs.com is the winner?

As for graphics, I'll wait for 48750, 4870 and GTX 260 to be benchmarked, and get the best value for money card of the three.

Yeah that looks like the best to me . Dabs are alright with delivery but their packaging leaves little to be desired IMO.

They have different OEMs (vx550 is CWT, tx650 is a Seasonic) but are of similar quality and performance.

hmm VX550 for £54 (£9 less) is tempting though... But nah! If i'm buying a PSU for teh next 5 years it may as well be "future proof"


I reckon winner number 2 will be the 4870 1Gb, but still 2 weeks till release.
