PSU Upgrade help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all, looking for some good advice on getting a new PSU. the current one I have was on sale and cheap, also that was all I could afford at the current time of building this computer. Now I am looking to replace it with a more quality psu and add another gtx460.

So what is the power draw approx on my system? and what power supplies should I look at that will be quality and enough power for 2 gtx460's? Thanks for the help, Cheers

You can go here and roughly calculate your draw. I ran some numbers and the estimate I got was 450W. Adding another GTX460 bumped that up to around 550W, although the option to overclock the GPUs isn't available, so figure maybe 600W to be safe.

As far as recommendations go, I second anoob's suggestions. The X750 is a great unit. Other good ones are the Antec Truepower New series and pretty much any of the Corsairs (AX, HX, and TX).

Get a good 650W unit.
The XFX 650W XXX Edition is an exceptionally good deal after $10 promo code and $30 mail-in rebate. The promo code expires tonight. The Antec TP-650 would also be great.
See http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...1-new-psu.html for links.

an XFX is also a good choice..if you like pricey and heavy ones go with corsair or Thermaltake..
