I found a great deal on this OCZ 600W power supply and I am wondering if it will power my future computer plans.
This is the system i am looking at powering:
AMD Phenom II X4 940 3 gHz
6 GB ddr2 ram (2x2 Gb + 2x1 gb) Total of 4 sticks of ram
2 7200 rpm sata hard drives
1 external USB 7200 rpm hard drive
2 LG super multi dvdrw/cdrw drives
4 120 mm case fans
I am going to buy a Radean 5770 1gb in the near future and would like the new power supply to power another one down the road.
So I would have the above system plus 2 5770's in crossfire.
I have looked at a few psu wattage calculators and gotten some differing answers. One told me that a minimum psu of 350 watts was good enough and a couple others said I would need a 650 watt minimum.
It's a bit more expensive, but I've heard good things about Corsair Powersupplies.
It's also modular, which is a big plus. If it's too pricey, let me know and I'll help you find something
a bit more cost effecient.
If you were going with something bigger, I would recommend a larger powrsupply, however,
Unfortunately, you'll need a PSU with 2 6-pin PCIEx connectors to power both cards (each card has a 6-pin PCIEx connector).
It says in the specs (everywhere I looked except on ncix) there there is 1 x 6-pin PCI-E and 1 x 6+2-pin PCI-E (instead of just an 8-pin PCI-E). Couldn't I use the 1 x 6+2-pin as the power connector for the 2nd 5770?
I am using GTX 560 with cooler master extreme 600w.my UPS is 500 that too an ordinary one.when I play games like Crysis II and skyrim with the max video settings, the UPS starts beeping frequently as if there is a power cut, maybe I am suppose to upgrade my UPS please help..please reply
