Right Power Supply

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am kind of confused on what power supply I need. Was going to get the Corsair 1000w but, after doing some reading it seems me to be overkill for what is needed. I am planing on getting two 6970s in CF with a i5 2500k. Will be overclocking them and running some extra fans with 1 ssd and 2 hhd. Is this overkill or could I save some money and go with a lower watt power supply?

Yes, a HX1000 is overkill, and it's also old and outdated. You can get a good 700-750W unit. Check the recommended power supplies list for ideas.

I don't think you need 1000w you could probable get a 750w-850w PSU.
We need more info.
Fill out you specs here.

I still suggest/recommend a Corsair though.

I'd say you'd actually get away with a 650W PSU even. A 700 or 750 Watt-er would be ideal really
