Ideal Power Supplie for my system

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, I plan on building the following system:


Intel I5 2500k
Hyper 212+
ASUS P8P67 Pro
AMD HD 6950
2x2g G. Skill ECO 1333 1,35v
Fractal Design Define R3
64g Crucial RealSSD C300

I plan on overclocking the CPU and on doing the bios mod to unlock the 6970 shaders.

Right now I have my eyes on the Corsair TX650(€72), Antec True Power New 650w (€78) and Seasonic S12 Energy Plus 650W (€75)

What would you recommend for my system? (without the option to add a second card)

How far would I have to go to be able to crossfire?

Out of those three, the TruePower New is probably the best choice. It's noticeably superior to the TX650, but I don't know about the S12 Energy Plus yet. So my pick is the TruePower New hands down.

But now AMD recommends at least a 500W for a system that has a single 6950 in it, so you should be able to Crossfire two of those if your system were being powered by any one of these three power supplies.

Although, I don't know how much the power draw would change if you were to unlock the 6970 shaders. But for what it's worth, AMD recommends a 550W for a system with a single 6970 in it. But even then it sounds like a quality 650W such as the TruePower New would be just fine if you were to crossfire two unlocked 6950s.

The S12 Energy Plus is either an S12 or S12E, I forget which. Basically the same thing as the original version of the Corsair TX650.

So the Antec is still better.

Thanks. I also found a XFX Core Edition PRO 750W for a reasonable price. It would be considerably better right?
