Hiper or OCZ? Tags: Power Supplies OCZ Components Product Last response: August 4, 2007 12:52 AM in Components Share fischju August 1, 2007 9:01:33 PM I need a new PSU for my X1950XT, this 420w with a 14a +12v isn't cutting it. I have 2 HDDs, 2 DDR2 ram sticks, an X2 3800+, and a multi burner. My case is pretty small, and I wanted modular. If this one will power my PC, that's the one I'll get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But if not, this is my second choice http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The box for my card recommends a 30A +12v In your expert opinion, is the Hiper PSU enough for my system, or should I go with the OCZ? I'm open to any suggestions for other PSUs, but I REALLY like this design http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http:// www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681712101...

If I were you I'd get a Corsair 620 thats very nice and very quiet, its also modular.

Mati87 August 3, 2007 1:01:17 AM Corsair just came out with a 450 model and is bringing a 550 watt model at 100. I'd wait and get that one since it will probably be the best (and newest) for the price range.
