Will the 650W be enough or should I go for the 750W? (same price) More about : psu 650w 750w Best solution Rugger a c 158 ) Power supply May 22, 2012 8:40:33 PM A system with an HD7870 requires a good qualty 500W PSU with 32A on the 12V rails and two 75W PCIe power connectors. Your system only has a mild OC on the processor....taking a look at the site you linked a great PSu for around the same price is the Superflower Golden Green 550W: http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/info/p688894... or the Seasonic S12II-520: http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/info/p640838... That Superflower is a great PSU and would be my preference. It's 80+ Gold and well reviewed by many reputable sites. The 45A on the 12V rail is more than enough for your build and significant OCs on the CPU and GPU.

The options that Rugger said are much better options. m 0 l ko888 a c 1191 ) Power supply May 23, 2012 5:14:55 AM Rasurbo has a reputation for crappy PSUs because of the OEM they use. Any company that uses HEC/Compucase as the OEM for their power supplies suffers from that same stigma. m 0 l Bofink May 23, 2012 4:08:28 PM Alright, going for the SuperFlower Thanks Rugger for the good post m 0 l Bofink May 23, 2012 4:08:53 PM Best answer selected by Bofink. m 0 l Rugger a c 158 ) Power supply May 23, 2012 8:36:20 PM Glad I could help - ty for the BA. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
