Hello,
I'm looking for some good PSU to finish putting together 2 computers with parts I had on hand. I don't have are modems for ether, but I'll most likely go with WiFi though, as they will be inaccessable for cables. If anyone has any ideas for some, would be great too.

Leaning torwards Corsair for the PSU on both, but I'm open to suggestions.

First build using:
Core i3-2100 CPU
GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard
KVR1333D3N9K2/8G Kingston RAM
WD1002FAEX Cavair Black 1Tb HDD
LG DVDRW optic drive

Not looking to overclock this unit, but will look at upgrading down the road to a quad-core CPU, but the i3 will do for now.

Second build using:
i7-3930K CPU
GA-X79-UD5 motherboard
KHX1866C11D3P1K2/8G Kingston RAM x2
ASUS EAH6850 Radeon HD 6850 x2
WD1002FAEX Cavair Black 1Tb HDD
LG Blu-Ray & DVDRW optic drive
Creative X-Fi sound card

Not looking to overclock this one ether, though it might happen. Any help on these would be great. Thanks in advance.

You'll need a quality 650W unit for the X79 build.
You could go with a 400-450W for the i3 build.
I'd probably select a 500W unit with 2 PCI-E just because it's more future proof longterm.
What was the budget for the psu's you had in mind?

If using integrated graphics on the first build, then a good quality 300W PSU work. If you wanted to build in the possibility for a GPU upgrade, then this Corsair 500W builder series is a good deal...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $31 after promo code and rebate - 15%promo code ends today.

Agree with a good quality 650W for the X79 build plus CF. My signature has a link to a thread with a list of recommended PSUs. use that as a guide to find the best sale price on a quality PSU.

The price range I was hoping to stick with was $50-$175 or so.

Thanks for pointing out the links, as I was considering the Seasonic also, as it looks like the few Corsair's that I was looking at are even made by them.

Thanks for the help guys.
