As for the title, I wanna ask how much the power do i need for my rig. The specs are:
Intel i5 2500k OC to 4.0ghz (with vcore 1.5)
2x 4gb DDR3 Patriot Viper extreme
Evga GTX 560ti (oc from 850 to 900)
HDD Seagate 160gb @2pcs
Seasonic 650watt (Forget which series..lol)
From description above, my seasonic now is dead (like cant power up the pc). I have use the psu calculator (extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp) and the result do i need are 578 watt. Is this the real watt i need to run my rig or I had to buy psu with more watt for more expansion later.
Thats a figure you should use to serve as a minimum limit for how low you should buy, such that when your psu get some wear on it it will still safely power all you parts. If you are serious about upgrading, especially if you plan to do SLI i would suggest ~750w.
Not with just 560ti's, my xfire 7870's both with heavy OC pull more power than that and even with my CPU OC, 750w is more than sufficient.
Thanks for the reply sir vortical & sir Alpha3031.
I had thought to adding sli but that was years ago. For now I just want to replace the psu with something affordable within my budget (not less than $100) until someday I had opportunity to upgrade later. So I should pick psu with range from 600 watt - 750 watt to be safe with my current setting?
Btw this is maybe just silly question but I need another opinion. Is there a difference between not using stabilizer/ups or not hehe.. Because i forget to bring it with me
