More about which
  1. none of you mentioned.this one is a good choice-
    http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/10543870/art/corsair/enthusiast-series-modular.html
    BTW gtx 570 SLi needs 750w or more for sli a little more room left.
  2. True what helfire24 said you will need bigger for future SLI, rather 750W or 800W, out of the lot you picked go for corsair
  3. Check out scan.co.uk, ebuyer.com and overclockers.co.uk first. Pixmania can be hit and miss.
  4. Or aria.co.uk, they usually have some good offers on
  5. agreed, 750w+ for gtx570 sli. The only good thermaltake PSU's are the toughpower series, you take a chance with their other products. Corsair, Antec and Seasonic are the best choices for reliability and always produce their labeled wattage. Anything else and you really want to read a detailed review (one where they test it in under full load in a hot box and check for ripple/noise)
  6. so would this
    http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/10543869/art/corsair/enthusiast-series-modular.html
    be a good choice for SLI later on?

    PS: also im not from the UK just posting pixmania because you guys can compare the price in £ and not in € :P
  7. wow! that's a good psu.
  8. He is probably fine with the Thermaltake. Even with SLI. The Calculators put him at about 624 after adding the second card, so 650 is plenty.

    With those specs I would be thinking about a platform upgrade long before dreaming about having a pair of 570's

    That Corsair 750 is a decent choice

    yes, i will be upgrading later on, gonna wait a month or so before buying a 2nd 570, since my PSU is broken I need a new one and im thinking for the future already for SLI

    We will see later but I got this in mind at the momment:
    Asus P8H67 (B3)
    CPU Intel Core i5 2500K 3,3 GHz
    PC Kingston KVR1333D3N9K2/8G 2 x 4 GB
  11. ^+1 better then a TXM 750 imo.
  12. I'll go +2
