Hello,
Need help with PSU.

Rig is...
CORE: i5 2320 3.0 BOX (planing OC to 4.2 air)
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3
GPU: Gigabyte GTX560 TI 1GB GV-N560OC-1GI (plan to get second card for SLI later on)
RAM: 2 x 4 gb kingstone 1600MHZ
HDD: 7200 sata2
OTHER: casual DVD/RW drive, later on maybe I'll add SSD 64gb to utilize z68 features


Some sources says 600 is tight but capable, esp. if gold one, some says I need 750+.
I can get:
FSP aurum 600 (maybe weak)
or
chieftec A750 (but I've read bad reviews about chiefs, they are noisy...)
or
XILENCE REDWING SPS-XP800 (not much info about that product, but 800w cheaper then 700 and 750 somehow)

I really like FSP, but afraid it wont be enough for my needs.

Thanks to anyone who can help me out.
P.S. I'm not in US, no other psu options basically =(

Ok i found 2 more options to choose from:
OCZ ModXStream Pro - 700W
and for extra 15$ I can get OCZ 750W, Fatal1ty Series

So to summ up:
1. FSP aurum 600
2. chieftec A750
3. XILENCE REDWING SPS-XP800
4. OCZ ModXStream Pro - 700W
5. OCZ Fatal1ty Series - 750W

If you plan to SLI you need at least 750W.

Grr all 3 of those use 4 12V rails. The fsp is your best bet. Even though it says 600W it's got 18A on each 12V rail which is really 864W. I prefer to have one 12V rail with a high amperage but if those are your only options you won't gain much by using the other 2 as they have 20A on a rail but lack a decent psu rating.

Found the requirements:
Graphic card requirements is
500 watt or greater power supply with a minimum of 30amps on a +12 volt rail

I'd go with the FSP or the OCZ 750W. They are both basically the same in terms of power but the ocz is modular which is handy when plugging everything in.

So both GPUs will work fine?

If you want to objectively, accurately and scientifically determine what PSU power is required for your Vid card and PC in both watts and 12v rail amps., the forum Utility link below will show you how easy it is to calculate this information and objectively determine which PSUs are quality built, reliable PSUs that can meet your needs. Be advised that the available 12v rail amps. is just as important as the total PSU wattage. You need both to be correct.

Ok, took me a couple hours on a phone, i think i checked all local hardware shops (some even twice hehe) and THADAM:

Found Corsair TX650v2!

Which as far as i saw a very highly rated in that price range
And some testimonies says it work fine with SLI 560ti

I love the corsair and they stick with the one 12V rail philosophy.
