OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

will it hold a GTX260 or GTX460? Im simply talkin about connectors. I know the 260 needs two pci-e connectors. This power supply says it has one 6 point connector and one 6+2point connector. Is that still okay? This Power supply is on sale for pretty damn cheap today, and I want to go ahead and get it if its compatible

It should, how many amps on the 12v. Also how cheap is it and where from? You can get a Seasonic that will run those cards easily for around 59.00, and will be superior to the OCZ

58.99 after 6.00 promo code (its on sale today for black november.) and it has a $20 mail in rebate. one other thing worries me, It has a 30 return policy. well, what if i dont finish buying all the parts and building the computer by then? You think I should go ahead and get it. It seems like it should suffice. Cant afford to waste money, but this just seems like a sweet deal.

BTW, i bought that memory you told me about. $50bucks after mail in rebate. Nice deal, thanks. Actually is the first part I bought. Now I want to move forward with this. is it a good idea for that price? and given the dilemma about the warranty?

NP glad i could help

Seasonic is one of the best if not the best power supply manufacturers out there. OCZ is decent, but can't hold a candle to Seasonic, read some reviews if you don't believe me. For 59.00 you really can't beat it IMO

yeah I looked at that one. I really only wanted to spend $50 bucks on one. I would buy that one you just showed me, but its $70 after shipping. Have you found it anywhere else for cheaper? Im willing to spend $60 I think. (Im very low on funds, every dollar counts)

Looks like alot of people say the MIR is practically impossible to get. I dont know, Id hate to buy something and it be DOA, but I not hook it up for 30 days and then I cant return it. This is stressful. LoL. So you dont know of a better power supply for $60 after shipping? Something you feel wont be DOA..

the OCZ PSU is up to task for either nvidia card. here is a review of it, its not great but it will work and you can do worse.

Honestly I haven't found a better power supply for the money than that seasonic in the brief search I just did. I'm not saying there isn't a better value out there, but it might be tough to find, or you'll just have to be patient and wait until something presents it's self. maybe look at open box sales, see if something good shows up.

this is best PSU on newegg under $53 shipped. seasonic made, it peaks at 490w and has 30a on its 12v. you will need to use adapters since it only has one power cable.
