Hey thinking of getting new powersuply for around £70

Looked at the: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600w Silent SLI Ready Modular Power Supply

And :OCZ StealthXStream 500w Silent Power Supply

Or the : Corsair TX 650W ATX SLi Compliant Power Supply

Can anyone give the cable length of any of these and what one you would recommend ?

From the manual of the Corsair TX650:

"Extra long fully sleeved cables support full tower size chassis"

1 x 610mm 24pin ATX power connector
1 x 610mm 8pin 12v connector
2 x 610mm 6+2pin PCI-E connector
2 x 864mm SATA power cable with 4 connectors on each
2 x 1016mm 4pin molex with 4 connectors and 1 floppy drive connector on each

I taped a lot of extra cabling to the roof of my mid tower case.

[EDIT]
And I'd recommend the TX650w. It's what I have, and I'm very happy with it.

My experience with OCZ is that the cables are not very long. It may very from model to model though. My StealthXstream has very short cables and the Gamexstream I used to have had very long cables.

Generally Corsair uses very long cables.

Yes, in the manual, next to the length in mm, they list the length in inches too, they are (in the same order as above)

24"
24"
24"
24"
34"
40"

In a mid tower case there is a LOT of extra cabling to tie together (PSU comes with some ties), and I had to cellotape extra cables to the roof of my case.

I can open it up and measure them tomorrow if you'd like

Here is another vote for the Corsair. Alternatively you could get the HX620. It is modular compared to the TX650.

Okay, I'll be different and recommend something other than the Corsair TX650. While it's a good power supply, it's not the best, and I believe you could do better at the same pricepoint.

That's what I'd get. Its big brother - The 750W version - is amazing, and since this is built on the same SeaSonic platform, the 650W should be no exception. It's better than the TX650 in terms of efficiency, voltage stability, ripple suppression, etc. and even has a few modular cables.

That's what I'd go for, anyway.


Edit: I forgot to say: The TruePower New 650W has 4 PCI-E cables, as opposed to the TX650 which only has two; this PSU would easily be able to handle HD5870 CrossFire, or maybe GTX3XX SLi when they come out. (Not sure on the GTX3XX, their official specs haven't been released yet).
