  1. Neweggs PSU calculator says roughly 700 watts, so I'd stay within the 800-900 watt range.
  2. Corsair HX850 is a good choice.
  3. Hello Miks1890;

    I can't find any reviews on that XILENCE Redwing 800 R3 to confirm its a good PSU.
    What other PSUs in the 650W-750W range are available in your area?
  4. what about:
    corsair gs800
    cooler master gx750
    corsair tx650
  5. Coolermaster, not a really loved brand for reliability and performance.

    The GS800, sure.
    The TX650, that's what I'm using and it only has 2 PCIe connections, you need 4.
  6. are Fortron and Chieftec any good?

    it's an andyson unit. think BFG ES-800, maybe with better caps
  8. Fortron is made by FSP...a good OEM mfr. What models?

    the GS800 is well reviewed and probably deliver the best power of the three listed

    The new Corsair GS800 is a terrific power supply for its price point, and we highly recommend it if you are looking for an 800 W unit with a good cost/benefit ratio.

  10. Miks, are you having a budget restriction or more of a "shipping to Latvia" restriction?

    Also, go here:

    Do you have a link you could provide us to someone who does ship to you? And a desired budget?
  11. Corsair GS800 is pretty decent.

    Good options if available:
    Antec High Current Gamer 750W
    Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro P9 650W
    XFX Pro Core Edition 650W
  12. my budget is around 150$

    this is the motherboard which im going to buy
  14. Nice motherboard choice.

    A little over @ 77 but looking good. CORSAIR TX 750W V2 (CMPSU-750TXV2 EU)
  15. CORSAIR GS PSU 800W @ 71.00 Ls is also looking good.
  16. then which should i take?
  17. Of those listed on the site I'd be inclined to recommend:

    ANTEC HCG 750W, the OCZ 750W ZT, the CORSAIR GS 800W , and the CORSAIR TX V2 750W

    My personal preference would be to go with the Antec, however the OCZ and Corsairs would be good as well.
  18. Corsair GS 800W or Corsair TX 750W V2 would be fine. You can pick the one you like.
  19. You've been given lots of solid choices, you're just going to have to pick one :). Pick the one that you think looks nifty....you won't go wrong with any of the above on the last few posts.
  20. thanks, im taking the gs800
  21. I think it will do a good job for you.
  22. Great choice, have fun putting it all together!
