Rig upgrade, Advice needed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so I'm expanding my sig rig and can't make out what kind of power it'll need. Have a sealed 700W ModXstream lying around wich was meant for a project but I'm afraid it won't be sufficient. If not, maybe some other suggested PSU for >100 euro?

The main parts are;
Biostar TA890FXE
AMD X6 1055T 125W (aiming for +- 10% oc)
XFX 6850 Black Edition CF

Side;
Corsair H50
OCZ vertex2 turbo 60GB
OCZ Vertex2 120GB
V12XT Fan controller
5x 120mm led fan
5"25 Blueray drive
Carbide 300R

Your planned build would run fine off a solid 400w PSU. 550w if you want to go Crossfire with those 6850's.

i am sure the 700 watt will be more than sufficent for your pc

Also if you have not bought it already, shed the v12xt...its only for show.

if you are looking to expand it, why not add one more 6850?

also with an h50, you get more than 10% oc out of your cpu.

I already own the V12XT, but like you say its only for show. Might aswell just hook all fans up to the PSU.

The 2nd 6850 is already ordered, maybe I wasn't very clear on that sorry

I'm not very familiar with the H50 performance, only had mine on stock clock with sig rig but the 10% was just a reference wich I want to archieve. many Thanks tho!
