OCZ OCZ550FTY Fatal1ty Series 550W Power Supply $65
OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ500MXSP 500W ATX12V V2.2 $60
Price is not the issue, they are about the same. After reading reviews and help here, for the money these two seem to fit best. The system is a 930, w/ 1 hd, 5770, 1 cd/dvd, 6gb ram, with minimal OC (for now)
At most I will add a second HD (maybe) and step up the OC a bit
In a year or so may crossfire, but by I would be willing to get a new PSU if necessary.
These two are close, and don't really understand the sense behind offering both from one company, but I do need to make a choice ... is one quieter? more stable? cools better? Thank you.
OCZ is not on my short list of quality psu's. It is false economy to skimp on quality, and my impression is that OCZ psu quality is spotty.
I think there are better quality units available from Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic.
A good PSU is actually one of the most future proof pc components you can buy.
I think I would get a good 650w unit up front.
