More Power?

Hey everyone,

Just finishing off building my new Rig and I think I may need a larger power supply than the one my old rig was running on.

I am currently using a:
1 x Arctic Power 700W PSU - 4x SATA 1x PCI-Express

and the components I have/ want to put in are:

1 x Samsung HD204UI Spinpoint F4 2TB Hard Drive SATA 5400RPM 32MB Cache - OEM
1 x Corsair Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
1 x AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition 3.3 GHz Socket AM3 6MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor
1 x Asus CROSSHAIR IV FORMULA 890FX Socket AM3 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
1 x Samsung SH-S222AB 22x DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA Optical Drive - Retail Box Black
1 x Gainward NVIDIA GTX590 3072M GDDR5
1 x INTEGRAL PC3-10600 DDR3 PC Memory - 4GB DIMM RAM 1066 MHz

Not planning to overclock anything.

Any ideas??

  1. I don't think your current PSU has enough PCI connectors if it only has x1 6-pin PCI.

    The GTX 590 requires x2 8-pin PCI connectors (6+2-pin is the same as 8pin) and a recommended minimum PSU wattage of 700w.

    750w XFX $115 ($90 after rebate)

    750w Corsair Enthusiast $100 ($ 85 after rebate)
