Hello,

Looking for advice on PSU for system build:

Intel Core i7 - 2600K
Asus P8Z68-V Pro
Patriot Division 2 DDR3/1600 4 gig sticks
(2) XFX Radeon 6970 2GB
120 GB Corsair Force GT

Trying to choose between Antec 900 HCG or Corsair 750?

Thanks.

You didn't mention which model Corsair 750...different models are made by different manufacturers.

Do you plan to get a second 6970 at some point?

This is the best deal going. Made by Seasonic. Good enough for 2 6970's.

$89.99 after rebate. 5yr warranty. One huge 70a rail.

The Antec HCG are decent, made by Delta. Only 3yr warranty though.

If it has 80Plus Bronz cert than heat output is not an issue with this PSU.

I would suggest a quality 850W+ .
Some misinformation on this thread.
XFX units do not have heat or clicking issues = some units had fan clicking when the original models were introduced 3yrs ago - not even the same series anymore
Antec HCG series have a 5yr warranty.

I agree. However at least according toNewegg, some of the HCG's are only 3yr warranty, could be a mistake on Newegg's part.

Antec's website confirms that only the HCG-900 and HCG-750 have the AQ5 Antec Quality 5 year limited warranty on parts and labor.

The HCG-400, HCG-520 and HCG-620 have the AQ3 Antec Quality 3 year limited warranty on parts and labor.
