[Power Supply Question

Last response: in Components

My build:

Core i7 920 @ 3.8ghz
EVGA X58 SLI LE
6GB Corsair Dominator 1600
EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked
Noctua NH-D14 Cooling

Now comes the power supply issue. My PSU is 1000w but it's garbage. I am getting a Corsair. However, I really don't know how many watts I truly need with the setup above. Does anyone have a recommendation for a Corsair PSU that will run the above setup? I want a little extra room in case I ever want to go SLI again. For now, I won't be doing it.

Thanks for your help!

If you're going to add another 570 later,the I'd recommend Corsair HX750/850

For two GTX 570s with overclocking you will want a good 750W or 850W unit. I would suggest either the HX series from Corsair or the TX V2 series which is not modular.

Sweet. I'm going to go with the Corsair 850W HX series. It seems like a good deal too.

Thanks for the quick replies.
