Need advice on new PSU..., - Page 2

Because of this and future considerations I will purchase an Antec 850 new.

Again thank you TwoCables and overClockers.net for the great website and priceless advice I find here.
But a quality 850W will still be unnecessary overkill. For folding on both the CPU and the GPU at the same time, the System Load should be set to 85% to 90%. But even that's a little bit unreasonable because we are talking about the entire system. That is, we're talking about every last thing that is drawing power from the power supply.

So again, a quality 700-750W would be more than enough. And again, since you can afford the SeaSonic X-750, I recommend it. It'll be overkill, but I'd feel slightly more comfortable with the X-750 than the X-650. Although, the X-650 would probably be right in the sweet spot.

I personally guarantee you that the X-750 will be enough.

Anyway, you're welcome. However, it's Overclock.net, not Overclockers.net.

*******Thanks for the advise if you think the Seasonic will be adequate then I will purchase it.

**** Thanks for the correction

The X-750 will be more than adequate. It's one of those power supplies that would be able to handle the most extreme overclocking. We might be able to say that its quality is excessive overkill for most systems. But for me, that's half the fun.

Anyway, always remember that Overclock.net is the best.
