I am going to buy a new supply and I just can't make up my mind, Out of so many options I have narrowed it down to antec true power 650 watts(slightly used but in very good condition) and FSP Epsilon 600watts(new).
Which one is better and why?
Both have quad +12v rails. I don't need SLI right now and My specs are as follows:
Intel Core2Quad Q9400 @ 3.4Ghz
Nvidia Gforce GTS250 (will be upgraded to GTX 460 soon)
Seagate 500GB Sata
DVD Writer + DVD ROM
4GB Gskill 1066 Bus RAM
Hyper 212 Plus with Dual Fans
4 Casing Fans 120mm
I like Antec units over FSP mostly. But since the one in query here is a second hand unit, I would like to know the price you are being asked for either of those. And also, are those your only options?
if the antec trupower has a receipt to go with it for warranty purposes, then get it, otherwise avoid it. Just get something from antec, corsair, seasonic, ocz or xfx that is 450w or greater and has cables the length you need, you cant really go wrong with that advice.
I think I would get the Antec Truepower New TPN-650, if it is in good working condition and not worry about the warranty. Do you trust the person selling it to you? Have they told you why they are getting rid of it?
If you get satisfactory answers to these and other questions, then it's a good buy IMO.
Yes the person is reliable, have done many other deals and has a good trading score on the site from where I have been buying most of the used and rare stuff which is not available in the local market.
Although I am too leaning towards antec TP 650w PSU but here is another option, someone suggested me this Xigmatek NRP-PC 602 600watt supply. How is that?
Well, in the end I bought a used corsair 650TX in a very good condition, corsair is very good in my opinion but the new one was very expensive so I think I got lucky with this one as it is in very good condition.
