TX750 V2 750W enough?

The PSU that I want to purchase is the Corsair TX750 V2 750 Watt PSU. Is this enough/ too much power for the system that I have/ going to buy? Here is everything that I am getting/ gotten.

HAF 912 black case (already bought)

Intel Core i5 2500k CPU (already bought)

Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (already bought)

Asrock P67 Extreme4 Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) RAM

XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB

Sony ODD (already bought)

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB (already bought)


So would a 750 watt be large enough? I want to eventually overclock.

Thanks

    Yes, It is powerful enough for your system with room to run your card in CrossfireX. It is a balanced build & PSU to power it.
  2. There is no such thing as too much power from a power supply..... (we'll if your using on-board graphics and a 1000watt supply, yeah, might be a bit much... :) )

    In your case, I'd seriously think about the TX950.... you might not need that much power, BUT, it's going to lightly load the supply which means lower operating temps, quieter operation, and longer life...


    And, if you just so happen to want to run Crossfire 6970's your ready...
  3. Right now I think I'll just stick with the TX750, in the future I'll probably upgrade it to a 850+ watt PSU. Also, this is kind of off topic but what is the difference between Crossfire and CrossfireX? Sorry for the random question, just curious.

    Thanks
  4. The TX750V2 is an excellent choice and i doubt you'll ever need any more power.

    The above review is using a more power hungry cpu btw.
    A quality 650W would run your gear with 2x 6950.
  5. Thank you all very much for the feedback, but I think I'll just stick with the 750 for right now.
  6. yeah it will but the xfx pro 750 is essentially the same as the tx v2 and cheaper to boot
