MY question is ....
1) How much is an avg normal wattage power consumption...of tx850 v2 psu
consumed for the normal computing like internet surfing,
listening to songs,watching you tube videos ,
general mid level gaming (need for speed most wanted are the game i like most and keep on playing them)...if the above system parts are used .....

will it consume a lot of power ??

should i go for a lower level psu ??



2)is power consumption of 650txv2 /750tx v2 / 850 tx v2 same ??
if a similar load is applied on all the three individually


3)Will the APC 800va UPS enough for the 850txv2 ..??

The 850 is more than you need right now,
the 750 would have been more in line with your needs but the psu will only draw what you need from the wall,
add your Cpu and graphics cards wattage requirements together, add about 20w for Mobo and drives to get an idea of the draw
ups depends, how reliable is your local electricity supply?
if its none too shiny then yes grab one

i also felt to go with 750 but ,
as its not available at the store and i am going to make the deal
the retailer is offering me 850

your words " psu will only draw what you need from the wall "
gave a positive feeling to me...

does your words means to say...
the consumption of either a 650tx v2 / 750tx v2 /850tx v2 will be same all the way...
if similar load is applied on 3 of them ??



pls reply me ...... and thnx in advance for the early reply

yes, your psu will only take from the wall the power that it needs to use
so a 650,750 or 850 will all use the same amount of power, just the two bigger units will have more headroom or capacity
