I needs help picking a PSU

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I need help to pick a PSU that i will use for my first build, I am with all the options.

This is what I'm going to be using in the build(also pics in attachments)
-Intel core i7 950 http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0346210
-ASUS Sabertooth X58 1366 mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131665
-PNY XLR8 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 at 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820178271
-COOLER MASTER Storm Scout http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119196
-ASUS SATA DVD Burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135204
-I'm going to be geting a EVGA GeForce GTS 450 at a later date, i have a 8800 gt to put in at 1st, also hoping to do SLI with the 450 sometime maybe.
-For HDDs I'm going to use two 80GB SATA seagate ones I have

So i need a psu that can power all that, I would like a Modular one, but if it has the 24 pin wired that's fine.
I think from what I've ready a signal 12v rail would be the best, plz tell me if I'm wrong.

Two PSUs that I was looking at are CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139006 and the Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153106
The PSU a am most maybe going to get is the Antec EarthWatts EA750 750W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371026 (Thank you Mattb2e)

Thanks to whom ever replies

The GTS 450 GPUs dont require a lot of power even in SLI. You could easily get a PSU in the 600-700W range and save a few bucks. I dont know which specific models are the best, but you check this list first and see which ones have the connectors you need and are cheaper.

On sale for $89.99 + $20 MIR and 10% promo code, so after all that your getting a decent psu for $60.99 with free shipping. Its not fully modular, but does have some modular cables.

I agree with franz. Max GTS250 sli can draw is around 220w. With a bit headroom in mind, a solid psu that can do 42a/500w on 12v. May take a look at the Corsair 550vx, 650tx ,Antec ea650 or better depended on the budget.

I have to disagree with this suggestion, its $100 , and is currently under investigation in this thread http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...ing-truth.html For being silently replaced with a lower quality OEM build by Corsair.

I would stay away from the TX line entirely until Phaedrus has enough data to support a conclusion on the truth of the the matter.

THe EA-750 I suggested above is more than enough for what the op needs, for nearly $40 less.

Ya that one looks good. let me do the math here... comes out to $704.91 (not figureing the rebates) if i can get it b4 the end of this year, i has a 10%off code, but i won't have all my moneys together by then, hopefully newegg will send me another 10% off code next for month.

something around 600w-700w ought cover your system
personally, i suggest:
Corsair AX750-750W, 80+ gold
Seasonic x650-650w, 80+gold

although these may seem somewhat expensive for a power supply, trust me, a good power supply differs a lot from a cheap and bad power supply. these good power supplies can guarantee you perfect stable system and more overclock capabilities.

i use a hx750, as that was the best during the time i bought it
