TX 750 or something better?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi, so recently I blew my TX 750. I wanted to get another TX 750 to replace it but now I'm conflicted(thanks to obsidian86 ). I'm just wondering if a TX 750 which retails for 84.99 CAD is good enough to handle my rig(SLI 470s, Q9550, 2 HDDs, 1 pump and about 12-13 120mm fans) or should I shell out some more dough for a different PSU?

Is your old one out of warranty? In my experiences, Corsair has been amazing with warranties. Every once in awhile something can go wrong, yes, but they were very prompt and professional with me. I'm running SLI GTX 460s, i7 2600k (oc'ed), h50, and 5-6 fans on an Antec TP-750. No issues at all. I'd say the 750 is capable, but I wouldn't go any lower. If you don't mind spending a bit more, I've slowly started to become a HUGE fan of Seasonic psu's. I've used the X-750 and X-760 versions multiple times and absolutely love them.

TX750 is $125(can) on Newegg.ca... hrm.. let's see what else we can do here...

BFG 1,000w? Modular, $105can plus shipping...
XFX Core 750 $124can before $20 rebate
Silverstone Strider+ 750 Fully modular, $129can plus shipping
Seasonic SS850HT $129can, 850w non-modular, plain gray colour, but Seasonic 80+silver...
XFX Black edition 750w modular, 80+silver with Seasonic internals, $129can and $30 rebate
XFX Core 850w Not modular, but good looking 850w for $135 canadian?

Any good to you? Gone no more than $10 over the price of a new TX750, and several great options there, some even modular to make life easy.

Oh, and how's Winterpeg this year?

Its water damaged, I doubt they will cover that under warranty. There's a thread about that half a page down. I only ran the sli system on it for a couple of days so I wanted to know if the TX 750 can take long term use without taking damage.

Thanks, the XFX 850W is looking pretty good, going to look around a bit more. and it is freaking cold! we had blowing snow at 30-40 km/h and sub -30 C the whole day today, I was outside for a bit, not fun.

Heh, I spent winter 2004/05 in Winterpeg, the Forks with a heavy wind at -30 is not nice...

You don't need over 750w for your current system, I'd go for the black edition XFX or the Strider+750, modular is sooooo nice for cable tidying.

For CAD 84.99 the TX750 sounds like a deal that's hard to beat.

But for $20 more (after rebate) he can go for a nice modular XFX 750 with Seasonic internals...

You're right but he may not have $20 or even the $40 (or however much -- I didn't check) required to buy the thing before the mail-in rebate comes

Well, the money isn't really an issue if I'm buying a quality product, its just that its time critical. The PSU needs to be here by the end of the week. Here are the totals for the top 3 candidates:

All are air shipped.

1. Corsair TX 750: 125.99 - 20 = 105.99 (NCIX)
2. Corsair TX 850: 146.99 - 20 = 126.99 (NCIX)
3. XFX Black edition 750 : 160.94 - 30 = 130.94 (Newegg.ca, NCIX is sold out)

I'm gravitating towards the TX 850. I need to order one of these by the end of the day.
