Chosing PSU - Page 3

post #21 of 24
PSU Calculators are junk, stop listening to them.

Even with a dedicated video card you could get away with a QUALITY and I stress QUALITY 550w PSU, easily. I am running 2 5870's on a 850w PSU, when I could have easily ran them off of a 650w PSU.

I'd avoid the Corsair VX units, and I'm not entirely happy with the Antec BP units... but really, any of those 4 brands will give you a great PSU. And 400w or so is plenty for your rig, if you want expansion room, then a 550w or 650w unit from any of those brands will be plenty.
If you avoid the over-rated junk brands, then you can run a pair of GTX570s on a decent 650w PSU (IE one from the 4 brands you listed).

Enermax units are generally great but tend to be expensive.
SeaSonic makes a lot of Corsair's and Antec's units, as well as selling units under their own name, and they're great, too.
Corsair and Antec have PSUs ranging from average to great, it just depends on which model we're talking about.
You can't go wrong with any of those four brands though.
