  1. Higher Quality 850W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139011&Tpk=corsair%20hx850 however, any of the models that anort listed will work.

  3. Yes, I would get the Antec HCG 900W.
  4. You really want to trust $1000 worth of video cards to a $60 power supply? The power supply is the single most important part of any computer.
  5. Because a bad power supply can cause the most damage!
  6. Most consider buying a power supply to just cover their needs, but if you go for higher power, your power supply will never be straining at any point, it will literally cruise through all you throw at it, never overheat or even kick into high load range.

    My 2 cents on this subject is suggested below.

    Consider these.

  7. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182133

    Excellent Power supply for only $90. The 650w version could pull almost 800w.
  8. Your Ultimate best matched PSU is this PSU from SeaSonic, it comes with 7 Years warranty...

    Or this other PSU from seasonic but should be able to power your system and it also comes with 5 years warranty... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151102

    I rather save the $500 instead for another card and I would use the $500 for a 120GB SSD with a 650Watts high end PSU just for a single GTx 680 and the rest of the money for a better CPU cooler...

    That makes a lot of sense!
  12. Because Crap Psu can blow up your system. Had a flaming HDD before because of a crappy 700W rocketfish psu...always go with a corsair, antec, seasonic, or xfx powersupply!

    or Silverstone, Enermax, PC Power & Cooling, and Fortron for that matter.

    There are too many! :pt1cable:
  15. Will this one work?
    AZZA Titan 1000W PSAZ

    Its 1000w
    80+ Bronze
    Only 105$!
    It got out of stock in new eggs a few times

    Ok I have already said this. AZZA power supplies are made by Super Flower and they make some very good units. But AZZA is not a brand I am familiar with. There are basically no reviews for any of their power supplies.

    Since you are spending $1000 on graphics cards do you really want to chance that much money to an unknown?

    Brands I trust across the board. Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ and Antec. You can probably add Kingwin to that list.

    You only need a quality 850w power supply as has already been stated. In my first post above there is a newegg comparison of 5 very good models. If it was me needing to power $1000 worth of graphics cards I would be looking at even higher end power supplies than those personally but any on that newegg list will work just fine. Finding the cheapest power supply in your needed power range is never a good idea.

    If it was me this would be my hands down choice.
