So a friend of mine is upgrading to a GTX 770 and I am buying his GTX 560 Ti to SLI. Right now I have a 700W Xtreme power supply which I don't trust with SLI. Any suggestions for which power supply I should get?
Also in my pc: Core i5 3570K ASRock z77 extreme4 motherboard 8GB of DDR3 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance 1TB drive Corsair H50 cooler
GPUs are 400w together. 200w extra for the rest of the system plus some wiggle room, 600w is plenty.
I thought this too, but you have to take into consideration he will SLI with a 770 and 560.
Sorry if I wasn't clear, I will SLI with two 560s
His friend is getting the 770, so he will take his friends 560. Thats the way I read it. The 560 has a max draw at 225w each. You won't pull that, especially when in SLI. 400w is a safe estimate for both cards together. 600w should be fine, as long as the quality is good
Byte70, did you read that it was SLI? o.o
I believe 500 would be too low... 750 would be my choice to have some headroom, but maybe with 600 or 650 you might pull it off...
I never said 500 I said 600, and then I corrected myself and said, 750w would be better since its SLI
A reliable 650W will do but a 750W will have him on the safe side of things. The EVGA Supernova is the best out of these
You did say 500 but not recommended :P
Oh, yeah, I said (without knowing it was SLI) he could possibly pull it off.
exactly like i said at first 750 to 850 for good headroom EVGA, XFX, seasonic or antec would be good choices.
Buy one. Do I really need to say anything else at this point? Once again, EVGA has something awesome here the competition can't seem to touch price wise. Performance? There are better units, yes. Not very many, but they exist. The real story here is how EVGA keeps managing to offer this kind of performance and still be more affordable than nearly everything else out there, and they have pretty much found perhaps the only OEM on Earth capable of doing it for them. It's got to be real nice being EVGA right now.
outstanding ripple suppression excellent voltage regulation fully modular semi-fanless mode nice blacked out cabling
nothing at all
reviewing awesome units is getting dull... where's that gutless wonder in my pile? Second in line? Well, at least I'm guaranteed something interesting in all the wrong ways in a couple weeks...
