Hi there, I am currently building a pc and am trying to figure out which power supply I should use. It will be used for gaming and I currently have an Nvidia GTX 460 with 1 500GB HDD and a Core i7 920. I am looking for a PSU that has room for upgrading such as SLI as well as better CPUs. The three I have my eye on are the http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=43101&vpn=CMPSU-... , the http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=43569&vpn=P1850B... and lastly the http://ncix.com/products/?sku=26415&vpn=CMPSU-750TX&man...

Thanks in advance.

Of the ones you have listed the Corsair 750TX will give you PLENTY of headroom for future upgrades. Those XFX models WR2 listed are top quality as well but might be overkill for a GTX460 system.

Top quality, but overkill if you know you are not going to be running SLI. For a single video card, a good 550 watt PSU (Corsair, Antec, Seasonic) is all you need.

Thanks for all the help guys. I think I will go with the 750W Corsair as it is 20$ cheaper seems to have good reviews.
