Sandy Bridge Build, Help Please? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
Sorry for the bump, but I was hoping for someone to confirm that the 650w version of that PSU would be plenty to power this. Or if I should get a different PSU altogether. Also kind of hoping that someone would confirm whether the hard drive listed in the post earlier in the thread would perform as good as the WD Caviar Black. If so, I'd get that to save some money and maintain performance.

I'm also a bit unsure about my choice of RAM, I'm not sure what would be the most stable or give the best overclocking abilities. Also, would higher speed RAM really show much of any difference in gaming or any noticeable increase in general performance? I figured it wouldn't, so I didn't pick faster RAM.

My suggestion on the power supply. Loss of 50 watts, but it will run the 6850.

Will it run TWO 6850s? Including if I overclocked both of them as well as the CPU? Also, I haven't heard of that brand, and everyone says Corsair is generally the most reliable. I definitely don't want to skimp on the PSU, but I don't want to spend more than I need to.

Well, I'm not going to put it all in for you, lol. But I looked to see the pin connectors. You only need one 6-pin per card. the PSU has 1 six pin and 1 six/eight pin ... its interesting. the two just detach from the eight. So yeah, check that site I posted about psu calculation

I don't understand what any of that (other than the last sentence) had to do with my thread or posts. I know what connectors I need, and I know you don't need to build the computer for me. I want to know if that PSU is powerful enough to handle what I need. I have never heard of that brand, and as we all know not all 650w PSUs are equal.

Also, I have heard not to trust those PSU calculators as they generally will overestimate for you. But I put in everything I would ever potentially upgrade to and it said 672 watts, just in case you really wanted to know.

Well I got bored and ran it for you. From what I can tell you will have 100 watts left to play with. Overclocking the CPU to 4 Ghz

Nevermind, sorry I tried to help!

Well I appreciate the suggestion and the effort, but I don't make a decision without being given good reasoning, and I was hoping that you (or anyone, really) would have given me some reasoning for choosing that (or anything else). And no offense, but that one post you made had a lot of irrelevant information and it confused me (and I am still a bit confused as to how you reached those points about the PSU haha).

what I was saying was that it had the connectors to run two 6850s. I have seen a couple other people with the same PSU on here too, so I dont know if it is bad or not. Works fine for me,but I don't do much OC-ing.

I also used that calculator based on what you have on your list and threw a few extra things on and the PSU can run what you had on that list with 2 6850s.

I got it for $40, that's why I suggested it because it was cheaper. That waas my reasoning.

Gotcha.

Well I don't want to skimp out on it just because it's cheaper if it is of lower quality or reliability. I would definitely pay for the quality and reliability of the Corsair, if it is worth it (and most people seem to suggest that it really is).

And I have heard to not really trust those calculators though. And I would say that makes sense since they seem to calculate based on wattage, and they don't even mention the amperage one would need, and different 650w PSUs can have pretty different amperage output.

Get yourself a good reputably branded psu a 600-650w is fine for two cx 6850's a good 600w psu can pull 700w safetly

The one i have in my sig rig is good and very efficient, Ive bought cheap n cheerfull psu's in the past and i tell everyone not to skimp on this part as you WILL regret it.

google psu reviews and have a read there's plenty out there
