Can't choose a PSU... Tags: New Build EVGA Systems Product Last response: January 14, 2010 4:47 PM in Systems Share Akblade January 14, 2010 2:35:03 PM I need to choose a PSU but can't... I have been looking at the Ultra x4-850 for this build: i7 960 evga x58 classified mobo evga gtx 285 (will be running two in a few months) Corsair dominator 6 gb 1600 Fatal1ty champion sound card Killer Xeon Pro network card Corsair H50 liquid cool Cooler Master HAF 932 Thanks guys! Alex More about : choose psu MadAdmiral January 14, 2010 2:41:05 PM Ultra isn't going to be good quality. If you don't have the HAF 932, there's a combo on Newegg (assuming you're in the US) with the HAF 922 and an OCZ StealthXStream 700W for $110 after rebates. If you have already bought the 932, stick with a Corsair, Antec Earthwatts or OCZ. The OCZ above is $60 after rebates, outside of the combo. Stick with 700-750W. That's all that's really needed. Akblade January 14, 2010 2:54:59 PM Awesome! so a 750w will be fine for dual gtx 285s later down the road?

Akblade January 14, 2010 4:28:29 PM kk, Akblade January 14, 2010 4:38:37 PM I just don't want to have to buy a bigger one later on down the road. MadAdmiral January 14, 2010 4:43:53 PM You won't need to. Newer tech actually uses less power. Akblade January 14, 2010 4:47:38 PM okie. ty! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
