New card...so need new PSU

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.

Cooler master- GX 750-
Gigabyte -Odin GT 800W-
Thermaltake -EVO Blue 750W-
Corsair -TX-750 V2-

  1. Corsair -TX-750 V2. Best one of the bunch IMO
  2. is the V2 made by seasonic or Channel Well?
  3. not sure. check the johnny guru site. It might be listed there.
  4. The Corsair, XFX, Enermax, OCZ or Silverstone are all top quality and you would do well with any of them. Go with the cheapest.
  5. soo a 750 will be enough for all I have listed?
    OH and also... what is the difference between the two
    ocz 750 watt psu's... they are both identical prices.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?

    nzxt hale 82 750
    xfx 750 pro
    corsair txv2 750

    all share the same seasonic platform
  9. thanks all..
    but I have been informed
    to go for the cheapest of the
    good ones... sounds like
    a good plan to me..
    but what I need to know now

    is there a difference between the
    two OCZ psu's? (being as they are only $97)

    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
  11. I am not really sure about the OCZs. I find this list to be pretty accurate though.

  12. soooo by the sounds of it... I wouldn't want either of the OCZ's...

    the zs is ok if its under 125
    but the fatality is not really worth it either
  16. yeah silverstone is a really under rated company when it comes to power supplies

    good choice
