  1. I recommend the Antec TP-750 or Corsair 750 TX.
  2. If you are never going to put a second video card in your computer, something like a 650 watt Corsair or Antec will be more than adequate.
  3. OK just answered this 3 times already tonite:)

    1 GFX card and aggressive OCing
    Antec SG-650
    Corsair HX-650

    2 GFX Cards and light OC'ing
    Antec TP-750
    Corsair TX-750

  4. I would change the Antec TP-550/650 for an Antec Earthwatts 650. Other than that those are great suggestions.

    Why ?
    The TPN 650;
    1] Provides up to 54 amps of 12v power to the EA's 45a.
    2] Is more efficient.
    3] Has greater upgradeability ( 4 x pcie power connectors ).
    4] Is semi modular ( and sleeved ).
    5] Is on sale ( at Newegg ) for the same price as the EA650. The 750 Blue is the same price after rebate as well.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd have no problem using the EA, but they are 2 different classes of psu and at the same price the TPN is a much better option.

    At the same price you are right there is no question that the TPN is better but usually that is not the case so I always will recommend the Earthwatts. By the way Frys had it on sale yesterday for $30 after $20 rebate.
  7. Well I’m thinking of going with the 750 watt Antec PSU because I am going to put more hard drives in my system in the not so distant future so the 650 watt PSU is going to remain on the side lines I think the extra 100 watts is going to assure there are no problems in the near future. And the reason for going Antec instead of corsair is Because I have an antec 200 gaming case so the antec PSU will go good together although you never see the power supply unit anyway and no I will only have 1 GPU card at a time because my system is a HTPC so I have no need for SLI or Crossfire system. Thank 4 the help so if you know the model number on an antec 750 watt PSU with 7 SATA power connectors one PCIE 6 prong power connector for GPU’s & 7 Normal power connectors like the ones for the old IDE hard drive it would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    Damn, that is good.
    The way they bounce the pricing around is insane, the 650 is now $110 :ouch:
  9. I got a corsair 800 watt PSU
