Which PSU

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I need an 8Pin connector for motherboard, and I would also like to do crossfire down the road. Which one of these does this best?

Or do none of them do the 8pin motheboard PLUS 2x 6 pin connectors? I see PCI : 6 Pin and 6 + 2 Pin? I assume the 6 + 2 is the 8 pin for the motherboard, thus making it so I can't use two GFX Cards?

I'd get the Rosewill,it'll give you headroom wattage(W) wise.If you can afford though by a Corsair,the TX model is cheap as hell,its not modular,but if you got okay cable management then grab it.Corsair's are always strong and reliable with steady voltages.Wattage wise i would'nt buy anything below 700w,only because its always good to have some spare power for any upgrade you may wish to add later.

Also if you buy a good make PSU secondhand you should'nt have any problems,try ebay.

I was originally going to go with the Rosewill, however there were complaints about how cheaply made the connectors were.... I assume that's no biggy right?

In addition, will this do 2 PCI-E Cards, then the 8 Pin connector on the motherboard? If so, what is it that I am missing that allows this, because I don't think this can...I may be wrong. The Raidmax claims Crossfire ability, however it has no 8 pin to spare then I imagine? Could I just slap on a converter from SATA to 6-Pin?

I'd skip the RV2, it's a cheap ATNG unit, not that good, and can probably barely do 700W. The Raidmax is a mediocre Andyson unit which is really an overrated 450W; skip it.

The Antec NeoECO is a quality SeaSonic S12II unit which I highly recommend; except it isn't powerful enough to do Crossfire of anything north of a 5570. Maybe 2x5670s at a stretch.

I recommend spending a bit more than $50 on a PSU to run your $1000 system...

You should really spend some more, you don't problems just because you cheaped out. TX850 is a good and cheap PSU

TX850 isn't really that great a deal.

Cheapest PSU that would meet your needs is probably the Rosewill Green Series 630W:

Best PSU for the job, though (without spending unnecessarily) is probably the SeaSonic S12II Bronze 620W:

I can't remember how good the Earthwatts 650 is-but free shipping,promo code and rebate gives you $50 total.
