Here is my current situation:
I put this rig together last summer for a cheap gaming rig. I got all the parts from my local Microcenter. With all the deals that they had going on at the time i got all of these parts for under $600USD.
The problem that i am having is that over the last week or so the PSU is starting to make a loud ticking noise.
It sounds like the fan just got knocked or something. The noise did not bother me at much at first but in the last few days it has been getting much louder.
I have decided that rather than open the PSU up and try to fix or replace the fan, I am just going to get a new higher quality one.
I am also going to be upgrading in the next couple of months to the new 600 series Nvidia cards when they come out. Most likely the 660 or 660ti depending on the price. With eventually buying another one for SLI.
My question is what would be a good PSU for this kind of set up.
I need modular since my case is not extremely large and cable management with my current PSU is a nightmare. Fully modular would be preferable but not a necessity
Dose anyone have a suggestion for a quality PSU for a $100-$150 USD budget?
I read the reviews on newegg on the OCZ ZT 750w and a lot of people said its a pretty noisy psu and short cables. If your looking for a silent reliable psu I would recommend investing in a Corsair, Antec or SeaSonic. Im guessing the new 600 series Nvidia cards are going to need a larger power supply to run also. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
