New intel barebones kit questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey looking to purchase a Intel Barebones kit from Tigerdirect. The kit's item number is B69-9119

Ill be adding dual GTX 550TI superclocked(item number:E145-0552) using SLI.

Do you think the 750w powersupply is sufficient of powering this?

Thanks for the help.

Definitely, a 750w is more than enough.

That kit is actually pretty decent. Not sure how much those parts would cost separately though.

Depending on the RAM in the kit this doesn't seem like too bad of a deal.

Oh and 750w is more than enough for 560Ti SLi, you could run GTX 570 SLi on that PSU, GRANTED it's a good unit. I'm not too knowledgeable in Ultra PSUs.

Good luck!

Thank you for the fast response.

When i came across this kit I saw it was a 750W power supply and thought it would defiantly power dual GTX 550 TI's. But when i called TD an hour ago they said you probably want something around 850-1000W, though the 750w would work but it would be pushing it.

I am not an expert in PSU or anything but whats the general rule to follow when picking one out?

Also if i were to price it all together it'd be about 950$. But the water cooling unit is a bit larger.

Ill just be going with the barebones kit.

They're just trying to get you to buy a more expensive power supply unit.

SLi 550s won't need anywhere near 850w.

In fact you can run SLi 580s with an 850w. Don't listen to someone who's job it is to sellyou something you may not need. We're not making any money telling you that you don't need an 850w PSU.

750 is more than enough.

that rig w/ dual 550 TI's probably wont even pull 470W at max load on CPU & both GPUs.
