PSU for GTX 480?

650 watt? 750 watt?

Price is a big variable since I wanna keep it below 1400

Should I even consider the GTX 480 if im going to use the Antec 300 Illusion?
Maybe upgrade to antec 900?

  1. I'm not sure the GTX480 will fit in the 300. You should double check that.

    I think Nvidia says you need a 500 or 600W with around 40A for a system with the GTX480. I know the Antec Neo 520 has 40A, so most quality 550W PSUs should be enough. The TDP for a GTX480 is around 300W, so if you want an SLI rig you should plan on a 750 at least, an 800W is a better idea.
  2. 750w. Might be $25-30 more and You will feel alot better about it. It gives you more flexibility when adding additional components aswell. At the same time don't bump up to a lesser quality 750w.
