Another... Is this enough wattage PSU? Thread

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I jumped the gun a little while back and bought a 750 watt corsair psu and now that I am buying my parts I am getting great deals on parts better than I originally Planned.

List:
Corsair H50
Asus Rampage III
Evga GTX 480
Lite on DVD RW
2x Velociraptors (may change to SSDs here in a bit)
1x WD Blue 1TB HDD
3x 2GB DDR3 Corsair Dominator
anywhere from 4-6 120mm fans (2x w/ LEDs)
1x cold cathods

For cpu it is up in the air. I am waiting for the Intel purchase program I am eligible for. It will either be (and I Hope) the 980x or (more likely) a 930. I do not plan on getting another 480x for awhile but would like to overclock either cpu and gpu. I will have sufficient cooling with w/e case I go with (trying to debate pulling the trigger on an 800D right now, will if my psu is ok) But if I do, I realize I will HAVE to upgrade my psu. Any quick comments would be appreciated!

Corsairs are great PSUs. You shouldn't have a problem running that system at all.

They're usually pretty far off the mark.

@ Kylechx

Seen as you have the TX which is a older design, I'd be wary about trying to power too much with it. Your current rig will be fine even with an overclock though.

The TX series (even if its a little older) is usually under rated for its power, and a quality 620-650 can power a GTX 470/GTX 480 rig, so 750 should be more than enough.
