Hi,
I can't decide between the Corsair HX-650 ATX Power Supply Unit or Antec EarthWatts EA-650Watt. PSU or Antec TruePower TP-650Watt. PSU.

I would be running,
ASRock 890GX Extreme 3 MOBO
AMD AM3 1055t x6 CPU
9800 GT EVGA
2GB x 2 Kingston
Antec 300 case + fans
1 500GB HDD

+ peripherals

thanks!

ps. if possible could you explain why? I'm still learning, so it would help greatly. thanks!

Any of those will be more than enough to handle your rig.. Actually, a good 450 watt PSU is all you need..

Cause I wanted to future proof it, in case I get Cross Fire.

How is the HCG 620 by Antec? compared to those ones?

So I guess it would be between Corsair HX-650 ATX Power Supply Unit or Antec EarthWatts EA-650Watt. PSU or Antec TruePower TP-650Watt. PSU or Antec HCG-620 High Current Gamer Gaming PSU.

But currently the Corsair is sold out, so I would have to wait.

Which cards are you considering for a Crossfire setup.? Obviously you know that Nvidia cards (like your 9800GT) cannot be used in two's (SLI) on your board.. As for staying in the 650 domain, also check out the XFX XXX 650W and the Seasonic S12II 620..
