  1. No graphics card?

    That's what will matter most when sizing a PSU.

    Is the Powercool Modular 850W ATX Computer PSU 80+ Dual 12V V2.2 any good,

    Dual rail or single, everyone says different, 12v for this, something for that, i get miffed at this point here;
  4. Dual or single, it doesn't matter.

    Any other options? Never heard of Powercool. Can't find any reviews at the usual review sites.

    That size PSU - assuming it's a high quality part - is good for 2 graphics cards like GTX 670.


    For a system like you describe:
    Sabertooth x58 & i7 965, 24GB Ram, NVidia Quadro 600 1GB Graphics, Water cooled, 6 Controlled fans, 2 Cold cathode rays, & 3D Blue Ray ...

    A 450W PSU will be plenty of power.
  5. Even a very high quality 380W~400W PSU would have enough power.
  6. Really, thanks, so its the graphics cards that soup up the power, what are the high power psu's for then?
  7. Oh, urm, dual rail or single and what is 80+.
    Thanks.

    For a system with two or more high performance gaming graphics cards.

  9. The graphics card you plan to use is very low power consumption.
