Hi

Just about to get a GTX 285 OOC and think it would be a good idea to get better Power Supply, as the one i have doesn't have PCI-E 8 pin

So i need a power supply with a 6 and 8 pin pci-e plug but cant make up my mind what one to get!
But it will be comming from these people and i don't want to spend over £100, and if pos. I'll spend a lot less

Yup! I am a fan of the Corsair 750TX....have one in my sig rig and have been VERY happy with both the PSU and the customer service. You didn't mention what you would need this for. Is it for your current rig? New build? What do you want to do with it?

This would help folks give you a more accurate assessment on something that would fit your needs.

Good Luck!


PS...a review on the 750TX:

Used the calculator and set all loads to 100% and went well over the top, extra dvd R/W, 10 usb devices and added Sli and it sayed 605W
and 471W without sli!
But as i don't plan on Sli, i think i'll get the Corsair 650TX

Oh, yes it's for sig rig

We have similar rigs...not the same but similar....I think you will be happy with Corsair. The 750TX has been rock solid for me and I am very satisfied with it. Like I mentioned before, the customer support has been outstanding and when I called had them on the phone within a couple of minutes...the techs were very knowledgeable and helped me on my build. Glad I could help ya out....I have yet to come across someone who has had a problem with the Corsair PSU line but there are probably some out there (I haven't seen them though). They are truly well built...I was impressed and still am. When I build another rig they will be in it for certain!

I read the review and every other word was "highly overspec'ed"
Sounds good to me

Just have to make up my mind if i'm going for the 650 or 750

I think if i can do it, i will go for the 750

But the GTX 285 SSC is £366 + the £100 for the 750

Unless i just go for the GTX 285 SC @ £320, and then i'll be within buget

Thanks again!
Gary


Oh, just one thing. What do they mean by electric noise level as they said they would have liked to see this a tad lower
