hey all. My new card has finally arrived and I have not the ability
to power it... sooo im looking at getting a new psu asap.

my rig-
amd 960T Thuban-heavily OCed and core unlocked(roughly 180-190watt draw).
MSI 870A fuzion(how I am able to run nvidia and ati cards together)
16 GB of gskill ripjaws 1600.
four 10k scsi drives.
one pci scsi raid card.
one high rpm sata drive.
saphire radeon 6870-heavily OCed
EVGA gtx 460 1GB- will also be heavily OCed.

NO CD/DVD/READERS

my rough calcs are telling me I need around 750watt or so..(if I need more please do tell!)

and I only have about $150 Australian dollars to spend...
so can you please specify which one of these psu's are the best
if there is one not on the list that would be better...and is available in aus please specify.

FSP AURUM -GOLD EDITION 750-
Cooler master- GX 750-
Gigabyte -Odin GT 800W-
Thermaltake -EVO Blue 750W-
Corsair -TX-750 V2-
NZXT -Hale82 750W-
Antec -High Current Gamer 750W-(slightly bias against antec..had bad track record)
Silverstone -Strider Plus 750W ST75F-P-
Thermaltake -TR2 Bronze 800W TR-800PCAU-
OCZ -ZS Series OCZ-ZS750W-
OCZ -Fatal1ty 750W-
Enermax -NAXN 750W Modular 82+-
Lian-Li -Silent Force 750W-
Zalman-ZM770-XT-

The Corsair, XFX, Enermax, OCZ or Silverstone are all top quality and you would do well with any of them. Go with the cheapest.

Yep 750 will be fine. Although if you wanted to upgrade in the future you might want to go with 850 just in case.

The Corsair 750TX v2 is made by Seasonic the orignal 750TX ( I have it ) was made by Channel Well.

I would feel much safer with something made by seasonic rather than cwt...
every antec my brother had was cwt... they all burned out rather fast.


but the OCZ's are the cheapest...
is there any real difference between the two models?

ocz zt is from greatwall(okish but kinda new and unproven company) fully modular but sacrifices some build quality over the ocz non modular unit sourced from sirtec(mostly adequate average units)
ocz fatality older unit from sirtec not their best effort but adequate

the silverstone 750 is the best one on your list tho
