The main differences that I see are that the PCPC is 80plus silver, corsair being bronze. Along with the corsair coming with 4 x 6+2-Pin and the PCPC has 2 x 6-Pin, 2 x 6+2-Pin. So what do you guys think?
Thanks for the tip on the cards. I got the 6870 for fairly cheap (160) to play BF3 on, but after the prices of the 28nm cards drop a little I will sell the 6870 and pick on up. That was the good thing about the double lifetime warranty, it ups the resale value.
And I was looking into a new PSU b/c i think I am close to the limit on mine. When I run P95 large FFTs and Furmark according to HW monitor my 12V line drops from 12.48V to 12.16V (use to be solid at 12.48V). This weekend I'm going home from college and gonna pick up my multimeter and test it better.
dont go by hardware monitor, it is measuring the voltage off the motherboard, my pc shows a voltage drop in hw monitor and im running a 6850 on a 650w antec psu. Use a multimetre to measure accurate voltage. Your 550w ocz is plenty. Unless you are experiencing problems your wasting your money on replacing something that doesnt need replacing.
Just got back and plugged in my Kill-a-watt, running P95 large FFTs and furmark and I am pulling 510W. Off my multimeter I am getting a drop from 12.3V down to 12.18V at full load.
Part of the reason I was thinking about getting a new PSU is I am building my bro a computer that I could just throw this 550W into and charge him $30 for it, so it would only be a $56 upgrade for the 750W or $38 if I got the 650W PC P/C.
