Power Supply And Motherboard

I'm Doing a build and the only thing i am missing is the power supply and motherboard

Its an i7 860 and im using a 5770 as the video card i saw a sale for a power supply today for 80 dollars from antec which most people tell me is good its a Antec True Power 650w here is the link would like to know if i should get it

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371021

and for the motherboard i need something good quality but im not going to be doing any crossfire or anything like that maybe overclock if its easy enough but i really just want something that has at least 3 x1 slots though because i have stuff im going to put in there i was looking at the ud4p but that looks like more enthusiast than i want.

    The Antec Earthwatts series is the one I usually recommend for individuals on a tight budget.

    yea i saw that but the one i was looking at was the true power new not trio and the 750w got a 9 on jonny guru also so i was thinking the 650 would be somewhere close to that also
  4. CAUTION - Just because one model received a favorable review does not necessarily mean that other wattage psu's in the same model series are just as good. We've seen some really strange things happen. Better to check for technical reviews of specific models.

    The TPN's are all built on the same Seasonic platform , only real change is the rating on the main cap.
    There's a half hearted review of the 650 here

    Both johnnyguru and hardwaresecrets gave the 750 a glowing review, it's probably pretty safe to say that they'll all be good.
  6. delluser1 - You're probably right. What actually popped into my head were the OCZ power supplies. Some psu's are good. Some are average. Some are not so good. All of their 700 watt psu's have shortcomings and missing features. Totally inconsistant.
