* 700 Watts - CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gaming 80 Plus Power Supply 30$ mail in rebate
* 750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready [+5] 10$ mail in rebate
* 750 Watts - Thermaltake TR2 RX Modular 80 Plus PSU - PN: TRX-750M [-17] 30$ mail in rebate
I really really want the 30$ mail in rebate. This build will stay at a single card setup so im not worried about SLI or CRossfire. I was wondering should i get the corsair or coolermaster instead of the thremaltake. are thermeltakes good?
and if you are sticking with a 2600 and not OCing then buy the 2600 not the 2600k
since the only difference is that you can OC the k model
None of your power supplies are appropriate .
A good quality 500 watt unit will be fine , a 650 watt unit will give you plenty of head room even if you were to add a second graphics card
im getting a 700w. its not my system its my friends and he told me he wants alot of power incase he wants to add a second card one day. mi also sticking to 2600k because i wish to future proof the system and in the future applications are going to be more multi threaded correct? please just tell me which power suply out of the ones i mentioned above
Yes, I'm a novice that's why my ID is tyro1. That aside, if it's not too late the 750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply is your best bet, and you a $10 rebate.(it's a tier 2 psu)
The Thermaltake TR2 RX Modular 80 Plus PSU will at the least, burn up if you go with 2 vid cards, and at the worst, take out your mobo & possibly your 2 vid cards as well. Not a tough choice for a$30 rebate. (it's a tier 5 psu)
The 700 Watts - CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gaming 80 Plus Power Supply w/$30 rebate is 2nd best choice.(it's a tier 3 psu)
