Need help choosing PSU/Mobo!
Aug 25, 2011, 11:24 AM
I'd really appreciate some help choosing a motherboard & power supply for my new rig, kind of stumped.
Just need a mobo that supports this ram;
an i5-2500k and can SLI x2 EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB
As for the PSU, I'd need a very reliable one that can support these parts(SLI 560ti, i5-2500k overclocked, 8-16gb overclocked ddr3 ram)
I was thinking this PSU;
because it's cheap for an 850w and well rated but it's not even bronze certified so I'm not quite sure. Just let me know since you guys are the experts :] If you need any other info on the rig I'm building just let me know.

Antec HCG 750W - It can easily handle 2x 560 in SLI and is of better quality and far better warranty - 5 years compared to just 1 year,...
