As the tile suggests i need a psu for a new haswell build.
I already have a VX450W from my old pc but i wanna sell that and get a fully modular psu. Plus i've heard about the low power states.I checked the corsair website where the have put up a list of haswell compatible psu's and the vx450w may or may not work with the haswell build.Any who here's my configuration:
i5 4670k
msi z87gd65
Sapphire 6670 1 gb ddr5(will be getting a 7950 later this year)
Ram is not fixed
I need a fully modular psu only preferably around 600 to 700w.
Thanks A lot .

Even a 500W would be plenty for that.

Where are you?

I agree that you don't need more than a 500 watt for that build, but Sn1992 posted a link to a pretty great deal on a OCZ ZT750w fully modular over in this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1773853/psu.html...

You don't really need to worry about the low power stated if you have a discrete video card since your idle and low power usage will be higher because of the dedicated card anyway. Your existing supply would more than likely work just fine.

Yeah, the whole 'Haswell Compatible' thing is rather exaggerated.

If s/he's got a 240V-only PSU, probably not in the US.

I checked on this site http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.js... . It said that i needed minimum 600W. I will be adding a few more hdd's and ssds and water cooling or a air cooler. I will also be overclocking it. So i kinda feel around 650W is enough. I said i wanted any modular psu's around 600 to 700W. Any model's will do.
