How much wattage do i need? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
AX750 for sure - the HX750 is inferior in every way.

The fan on the AX750 only spins when it needs to, so a lot of the time it's just running passively (and silently )

If the HX750 costs more (which is rather odd), then there's not really a reason to get that over the AX750.
Typically the AX750 is arguably not worth it over the HX750 because it's more expensive and the HX750 is already such a good unit that the extra money toward an AX750 is hardly justifiable unless you MUST have full modularity for whatever strange reason.

Yeah, it does seem odd that the HX750 costs more - it's a good PSU but the AX750 is definitely better, and always a reasonable amount more expensive from what I've seen before.

A quality 550w would easily be enough. The Antec TPN550 is on sale on newegg right now for $40 AR. If you want to future proof yourself though, 650w or more would give you room to grow a little bit. You wouldn't be able to handle SLI without a good 750w or bigger though.

Already wearing my glasses, which are in fact from Specsavers.

To be honest I would probably go with the AX750. It's likely that 750W will be enough for everything you want to do on this rig, and then when you build a new computer you can use a new PSU. Most of the HX850's power would probably go to waste, at least for some time, meaning less efficiency for you. And yeah, the AX750 will still be quieter.

newegg.com doesn't ship to the UK my friend... most people who buy a new PSU want to future proof, so I think he should get a 650-850w PSU and be good for awhile.

Unless he states he is planning on SLIing, 550w (or 520w if you include the S/M12II) is fine for any single GPU setup and any more than that is a waste of money.
