Which Psu should I go for?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I will be powering a i5 2500k probably going to oc, and will have a 6850 gpu.
which is a better bang for my buck?

$80 Antec TruePower New TP-650 650W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371021

or $90 CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-005-_-Product

Both will work just fine, it just comes down to preference. You could even get a 500-550w PSU if you need to save more.

Whatever you do, don't get the Corsair TX650, get the TX650V2. That said, the Antec TP-650 you also mentioned is a far better value.

More importantly though: a system based around a Core i5 2500K and a Radeon 6850 would run perfectly well on a good 400W unit, so my suggestion is for you to look into this unit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371029

I got the Antec NEW TP750, its a great PSU...

Very well built. I'd say get the TP650 over the Corsair. From what I have read Corsair PSU's are not what they once were..

Thanks for the help, I might cross fire 2 6850s in the future, will the antec be able to handle the two gpus?

You only really need a good 500-550W for two 6850s, so yeah, the Antec TP-650 will be more than enough.

It's several years old and was recently superseded by the TX650V2, which is excellent. I'm not saying the old TX650 is bad, just that it's outdated, not to mentioned overpriced considering its competition.
