Do I need a HX-620 or will the HX-520 suffice?

I'm looking at putting together a new system with an E8400 and a 4850 Gfx card. I would like the option of later adding a 2nd 4850 card. I run 2 hdds and 1 optical drive, and 2 PCI devices. Will the 520W HX-520 be enough or should I get the HX-620?

  1. Between those 2, I'd say the 620 or higher. I'd go with 750W if you ever decide to upgrade to a quad.
  2. The Corsair 750W is pretty cheap all things considered. On Newegg it's the same price as the HX520 and it's cheaper than the HX620.

  3. 620 but yeah get a 650 + one so you'll have the option of changing components out in the future also it should have a longer life span
  4. the 520W HX-520 is enough for 2 4850. i would suggest the HX-620 if u plan to upgrade again soon.
  5. yeah go with 620
