How much wattage/ what PSU?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok so I made another thread but figured out I might not need 1000w. I want a PSU that can run a 950, R3E and two gtx 285s (if these sell I will get another 570, and possibly might get another one later).

Anyways list all PSU recommendations please! Thank you in advance, I love you guys!!!

Try using this it's pretty accurate.

I would probably say a 800W or 850W would be fine. If your 1KW is a quality one I would just keep it. If it's a cheapy that I was say go with one of these.

No, that's pretty awful.

TC, I think a good 650W unit would be ample for you.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371021 is one of the best 650W PSUs on the market and it's currently very cheap.

Edit: if you want a lot of room, enough for a 2nd GTX 570 down the line if you wanted to do that, you could get the step up from the TP-650: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371025
It's currently going for very cheap too.

Shouldn’t I go for 80 plus Gold?

I’m really considering 1kw for 2 570’s; according to the antec my current load would be 881 watts.

750W is fine for two 570s.
80 Plus Gold is up to you if you want to save some money on your power bill.

How much wattage would it be for only one 570?

Once again, I want to let you guys know, I appreciate everyone’s time spent helping me with this.

For one GTX 570, get a good 550W unit like the Antec TruePower New TP-550. Either that or a SeaSonic S12II 520, whichever you can get cheaper.
