What do you guys think of the Antec TruePower Trio 650W?? Good for SLI as well?

Was looking at those and just decided on the NEOHE 550, which is also SLI certified. Has module cabling which is really nice. There is a 650w version but it's like $160. This the 550 runs around $115, give or take.

Depending on your budget, you can't go wrong with any of the following:

$50 - Xclio Goodpower 500W (newegg)
$80 - Corsair 520HX (buy.com)
$130 - Corsair 620HX (buy.com)
$200 PC Power & Cooling 750W Quad (newegg)

The absolute best for the money in my opinion.

My 2c.

The three 12V rails combined are supposed to give you 52A, so you should be fine. (I haven't checked in awhile, but I think you need ~40A for GTS SLI) You should be good to go.

I agree with 4745454b. The Antec is a decent, albeit not the greatest, power supply, and should handle the loads you will likely be putting on it.

They are not added up like that, the combined should give you about 42A. However the new Antec NeoPower Blue 650W (Also with better quality since it's made by Seasonic) does output 52-54A on the combined 12V rail.

I didn't add them up like that, I looked at the picture.

Notice that it says that 12v1, 12v2, 12v3 max load is 52A, which is what I reported. Even if it can only do ~45A, that should still be enough for 2 GTS.

So are you saying the Antec TruePower Trio 650W cannot handle two 8800 GTS 640 SLI'd??

P.S. The Antec TruePower Trio 650W comes with a 5 year warranty. I dont think anyone can beat that.

No, he was trying to say that I didn't report the amount of power that supply has correctly.

If you click on the link I gave, then click on the third picture, you'll see the amount of power for each rail. 12V rails are a little tricky because there is a max for the ONE rail, and a max for ALL the rails combined. For instance, the picture shows that each 12V rail can supply a max of 19A. Some people mistakenly multiply this 19A by the number of rails (in this case 3) to get the max for all the rails. This however wouldn't be the correct total. The transformer inside the supply also has a limit, which is lower then the max for the rail.

I'm not sure why he thought I was reporting the wrong number, as 3x19A=57A. I didn't say 57A, but 52A. (which is clearly seen on the side of the case.) I know the 320MB model requires 30A on the 12V rail (combined), with ~45A for SLI. (Its been awhile since I've looked, it might be more like 42A) Seeing as the 320 and 640MB models have the same GPU I don't think the 640 would require drastically more power. You just need enough to power the extra memory modules, which shouldn't be that much. An Antec model that supplies 50A+ should be more then enough to handle either card.
