  1. I think 'm' stands for modular interface i.e. the PSU has modular connectors. whereas only 750W is non modular.

    Can you give me the link so that I can confirm and say you clearly..

    Yup, just as I said in my previous post.. 'm' stands for modular interface and the other one is non-modular.. Nothing else.
    In fact both of them are same PSUs, only connector interface is different.
  4. Alright, i think ill go for the cheapest then. the 750W
  5. Yup, if you don't want to show off your build then non-modular is the way to go... they serve the same purpose but costs much less.

    However a word of advice:

    corsair CX series is not that good and 750W is not necessary unless you are planning to do a multi GPU setup. So better to get a good quality PSU from either Seasonic or Corsair TX or AX series and a lower wattage unless you really need it.

    You are right! but i always wondered what happens if you dont have enough Watt?
  7. Most common problem with having an inadequate wattage is not getting the full potential out of your CPU and GPU. You'll experience a reduced performance in demanding application like games. And your PSU will have to work very hard to keep up with your rest of the system... this will shorten the lifespan of PSU and if it is made up of cheap quality interior components it can easily get fried and can take your mobo, CPU and GPU with it for a ride.

    With that said, a good quality 650W PSU is enough to power nearly any system with a single GPU.

    For single GTX 660 system recommended wattage is around 450W. So, you should be fine with a 500W psu.
    For single GTX 780, recommended is around 600W. So, better get a 650W.
