Hello everyone,



First I wish to inform you that I don't live in the United States and in my country hardware choices are limited. Moreover, since I have almost finished selecting hardware for my would be gaming rig the parts list you would find below, and I wish to have your assistance and help in selecting just one item i.e PSU, it would be useless for me to inform my budget as that would be very different from that of the US because the prices here are very different for that of the USA. So that would make the thread very complicated. Instead I would post below the PSUs I can afford and find here and I would request you to kindly help me choose the best for my system. That would be very easy both for you and me. So kindly guide me. :)

PS: Please also inform should I go with modular PSU or non-modular PSU. Also I would like to go with the power supply with as much watts as possible in order to future proof my rig. Please also inform me if Antec PSUs would fit my HAF-932 chassis?

all the PSU you linked are solid to very good, all can do the job. If you never plan to run SLI, a 600w-650w unit will have plenty of power for you and future single GPU cards.

of those you linked, the antec TPN 750w has received very good reviews and is often recommended.

dirtyferret,


You mean PSU No. 6, Antec TP-750 BLUE 750WATTS? And would it fit in the chassis I selected, CM HAF 932? Kindly inform.

a b ) Power supply

yes #6 and yes it will fit. as i said before, the 650w version will also do the job if you don't plan to ever run the GTX570 in SLI

here are the two reviews on the 750w version from the two top PSU review web sites out there

What a power supply! Terrific efficiency between 82% and 86.5%, voltages within 3% from their nominal values (while ATX spec allows them to be up to 5% from their nominal values, i.e., voltages are closer to their nominal values than needed) and practically non-existent ripple and noise.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Antec-TruePower-...

Antec continues their evolution of the Truepower name with a unit that surpasses all previous Truepower incarnations easily. Coming in with performance reminiscent of models significantly more expensive and 80 Plus Bronze levels of efficiency, there's not much to hate about the Truepower New 750W. I think Antec could do with making more of the hardwired cables modular, but other than that, there's no reason you shouldn't buy one of these as soon as they hit the shelves. Signature too expensive? Too many people around you own a Corsair and you want to be different? Truepower Trio just a bit too lackluster for you? You too can have a True New.
