New Build, What PSU?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So i am ordering this new build this week, i am unsure of just how many watts i'll be using so i don't know what i need.

2x GTX 580 Liquid Cooled with EK Waterblocks
2x Crucial 256gb SSD
8gb 1600mhz Corsair Ram
SB 2600k overclocked to 5ghz or higher Liquid Cooled with EK Waterblocks
Aerocool Touch 2000
Corsair Airflow Pro
Asus Maximus IV Extreme
Lite-on 12x CD/DVD/BD burner

Would a 1 kilowatt PSU suffice? Looking at getting this PSU

That PSU would be overkill, you could go with that or anything above 750 watts to be safe.

Antec HCP-850
Corsair AX850

A 750W+ from Corsair, Antec, or SeaSonic?

Edit:
Didn't see the SLI for some reason.
Grab a 850w.

I'd call 750W low. 850W is the range I'd be looking at.

DO NOT BUY XFX PSU's, if anything go with Corsair, Cooler Master, Or Kingwin.... I got a Kingwin Lazer and its a really nice PSU

Edit: Ive had nothing but trouble with XFX's PSU's and many other people have also, read some reviews on them.

You're that guy who got the XFX XXX 850W with a clicking fan, right?

Grow up. It's an acknowledged flaw with that particular model. That particular model, which is completely unrelated to the BE 850W. One flaw with one model does not make an entire brand terrible. That's poor logic, and it's the reason so many decent brands get trashed by people who get one DOA or one faulty unit.

The XFX Black Edition 850W is a SeaSonic M12D unit which is almost tied for performance and reliability with the CWT DSG platform used in the Corsair HX850. They were both the top 850W designs available for over a year, until some of the newer competition came out. The XFX performs on exactly the same level as the Corsair, and costs the same with a rebate that would make it $50 cheaper. There's no comparison.

XFX PSU's are fine.


Check out some Seasonics, PC Power and Cooling ( if you can find them ), Enermax, Corsair, Antec.. etc.



850+ and go to town.
