Check out my lineup of parts for a new build, and tell me what size power supply I should get.
I will have
Gigabyte 890FX AMD motherboard
Phenom II X4 965 125W processor
2x2GB A-Data RAM @ 1600
HD 5770 (eventually in crossfire)
Single HDD and CD/DVD Drive
I am looking at a 750W supply for this, does that sound about right? I need enough power to do crossfire of the 5770's, from a good solid PSU manufacturer.
I've been looking at this one because of it's 80+, great power, price, and reviews: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Thanks for the quick replies guys.
Would the 650W leave room for overclocking, crossfire, and possible multiple HDD's?
If so, I think I will save myself some money and go with the 650W one. Sounds like a very very nice PSU.
I did read your post, and I really appreciate your answer. But I was getting the opinion of others as well. I want to make sure I have more headroom for future expansion, so I thought a 650 would be a bit safer. The quality of Corsair products will probably make the PSU last for a while, too.
