More about 550watt nvidia 760
  1. It's not a PSU i'd ever go for, ever. Coolermaster PSU's are known to be very bad supplies, that no one in this community would ever recommend you to get. How much do you have left to spend, in your budget?
  2. Mmm.. I only left 100 dollar right now, any good suggestion?

    Or, if you want some headroom and cable management

  4. Your GTX 760 needs minimum 600w. So i'd recommend you to get this one so you have a little more headroom to be safe.

  5. How about thermaltake smart se 630watt? Its price is cheaper than corsair cx600m.
  6. It's cheaper because it's not as reliable and as a quality PSU as Corsair. I'd still recommend you to get the Corsair.

    Get any 550W+ psu from the tier 1 or tier 2 list. However if money is an issue, the corsair cx is pretty decent
  8. Yeah, i should get corsair cx600m. My eXtreme Power Supply calculator lite already show 559watt. Mmm, what the meaning of 80+?
  9. 80 Plus (trademarked 80 PLUS) is a voluntary certification program intended to promote efficient energy use in computer power supply units (PSUs). Launched in 2004 by Ecos Consulting, it certifies products that have more than 80% energy efficiency at 20%, 50% and 100% of rated load, and a power factor of 0.9 or greater at 100% load. That is, such PSUs will waste 20% or less electric energy as heat at the specified load levels, thus reducing electricity use and bills compared to less efficient PSUs. Sometimes, rebates are given for manufacturers who use 80 Plus-certified PSUs.

  10. That mean if i use a 650watt psu with 80+, the output will less 20% than 650watt right?
  11. Thermaltake Toughpower 650watt is tier 2 base on http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx. Should i get this or corsair600m?
