Need PSU Advice

Hi, I was wondering what size PSU I should be getting?

System I am almost done putting together:
3770k
ASUS p8z77-v deluxe MB,
16GB SSD 1.25v 1600 ram
680 GTX vid card(maybe someday I will get another for SLI, maybe never.. who knows)
Corsair H100 Water Cooling
1x240MB SSD
1x3TB seagate HD
1x500GB WD HD
1x200MM fan
5x120mm fan
1xDVD burner

Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

  1. For room for SLI & overclocking, look around the 800-850 watt range. Corsair's TX850V2 comes to mind. And it just so happens to be on sale @ NewEgg right now.

  2. Thanks
  3. 750 is the minimum recommended (http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-680-sli-review/4) for GTX680 SLI, so it more than likely would, as long as you balance the load properly across the 4-rails (vs. the 1 on the Corsair which negates the need balance.) The PSU is just such a critical component for everything, that I would happily spend more on a quality well made piece (OCZ isn't "bad", but there are better PSU vendors) versus things like an H100 over comparable/better air cooling at a lower price.

    Also that PSUs typically are more typically more efficient at a lower load % and there can even be some (very small) energy savings.
  4. OK I am convinced :)

    How would http://ncix.com/products/?sku=62827&vpn=CP-9020004-NA&manufacture=Corsair be? Seems like the same one just modular and a little bit cheaper for me.
  5. Even better if it is modular just for the ease, especially if it is cheaper!

    There are some minor differences between a TX850M and a TX850V2, but they are both made by reputable companies and have nothing but great reviews.

    If you really want to dig into the differences, I recommend these reviews:

    TX750M (difference among the whole TXxxxM line are negligible): http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Corsair-TX750M-Power-Supply-Review/1374

    TX850V2: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Corsair-TX850-V2-Power-Supply-Review/1298
  6. Your build is near identical to mine except for the case and a slightly larger SSD. I went with the Corsair GS800, 800W 'Gaming' PSU. A little less than the 850 on sale but NOT MODULAR.
  7. XFX 850W PRO850W XXX Edition Single Rail ATX 12V 70A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply 80PLUS Silver for $139.99 CAD (After Mail In Rebate: $119.99 CAD)
