PSU for current rig

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My current rig is:

i7 920 @ 3.8ghz
5870 x 2
Rampage II gene
6GB mushkin 1600mhz
H50 Corsair cooler
Antec 900 + side fan

What PSUs would you guys recommend? I have my eyes on the Corsair HX850. Would this be enough / too much? Any feedback would be great. Thanks!

I would recommend a 850W.

850W is definitely too much (750W would be perfectly adequate, even a good 650W would run that system fine), but if you want a 850W unit I'm not gonna stop you. I would recommend against the HX850 though. It's an excellent unit but the XFX 850W Black Edition is a much better value.

Another reason I wanted the 850 is because I can get it cheap through my school. And furthermore I might upgrade cooling / OC higher in the future.

edit: will my 700W psu from OCZ be able to run this system fine? If so, I would not upgrade atm.

Your GameXStream 700W can deliver its rated power but only at the cost of high ripple. I would not use it.
