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 =(
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.
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.
