Hi, i am currently building my new gaming rig (coming back to the desktops after many years using laptops) and i need help in choosing the PSU.
Here is the system as i have picked so far:
MoBo: Asus P8P67-M Pro CPU: Core i5 2500K + Antec H2O 620 RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8Gb 1600Mhz GPU: GTX560 Ti Twin Frozr (maybe the 448, it seem to be worth the extra cost) HDD: 60gb SSD + 1/2 1TB HDD (most likely Seagate Barracuda 7,200) ODD: generic DVD-RW Case: Fractal ARC Mini Tower (i prefer the TT Armor a30, but the cooling seems much better on the ARC, and i would have to keep the Antec 120mm fan on the outside)
As i intend to have this machine running for at least 3years, I want to OC both the CPU (according to many reviews 4,5ghz appears stable overall, sometimes 4,6ghz, but i am new to OC'ing, so i won't fiddle too much) and the GPU (i've seen stable results with the 560ti at core 1000mhz, haven't seen OC with 560 448 yet - if you find any, please post the link).
I considered SLI (on the long run), but don't know how GPU cooling would be affected due the mATX mobo size. It just seems simpler to buy a new single GPU whenever the need arises.
For the PSU, i have loooked at the Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2. Do you guys reckon this would suffice for my purposes?
Thank you for your replies!
I am going with the Corsair TX650.
After looking for a while, SLI won't really bring much advantage to me, I'll be playing on a single monitor, not beyong 1080p (i have a second monitor of 15" to keep an eye on the system, so no 3d graphics required), and i won't be playind in 3D (movies in 3D already creep me, no need to play games like that).
In 2/3 years i'll just get a newer GPU.
