  1. PSU's are pretty standard. You can use your Corsair 750TX (good choice by the way :)) with any modern Intel or AMD system depending on the video cards you are using.
  2. Very good choice of PSU, I have the exact same running with Phenom II X6 1055T @ 3.2Ghz so you'll be fine. This PSU will handle anything you throw at it.
  3. PSU's dont need any compatibility (thank god for that)... you only need modular to fit into most cases... and the TX750 is an excellent choice should you opt for it...

    "you need modularity"...<--wtf?

    the corsair tx750 is a very high quality psu. any modern psu will work with any modern cpu. the "compatible with..." is just marketing, they all can do amd and intel.
  5. thanks, another thing either one of the fol following graphic cards i will be using:
    XFX Radeon HD 5770 or XFX Radeon HD 6850
    i no the 6850 is better, but to be on the safe side, both cards require external power rite, will the Corsair 750TX have the plugs [ to plug into the card ] required to supply either of the cards with power....first time i buildin my own pc btw, just taking the necessary precautions......
  6. The 750TX has enough power to handle two of either of the cards you mentioned in crossfire, it will have plenty of plugs for the cards, thats one benefit of getting a good unit.
  7. thanks.......dats a big help
