Could a V1 run two GTX 460 in SLI mode efficiently?

^ Shows your noob
The CWT built TX550 and 750 are two of the reasons that Corsair got it's reputation for providing quality power supplies

seasonic made antec HCG 620w modular vs CWT made Adata 650w modular

the adata has better regulation on the 12v rail (powers non-important things in a gaming PC like your CPU, HDD, and GPU)



and the antec's 5v fails a crossload test while the Adata passes
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Antec/HCG-620M/5.htm...

is the antec a bad PSU? no, it's a very good PSU. is the Adata better? more or the less the same PSU with minor differences that no user would see. My point? it doesn't matter who makes the PSU. what matters is how well it is made.

Feel free to correct me if i am wrong but As much as the power (Watts) requirement matters, the current requirement, measured in Amps is as important if not even more important. This is especially true if you have a or several dedicated video card(s). As a general rule of thumb, you’re aiming for the highest number on the 12V line.

all things being equal, a PSU 600w PSU with 48a on the 12v rail offers more real world power then a 600w with 40a on the 12v rail. things are rarely equal and many factors have to be considered such as how much power do you really need? most people over estimate their power use. does the unit have enough connectors for you? some 600w units have two PCI-E and some have four. some units have two floppy drive power connectors, some just give you adapters. some units are 80+, some are 80 platinum. the list goes on and on.

for choosing a PSU I always recommend

1 - the brand known for solid units?

2- is the PSU or its platform well reviewed by independent sites with proper testing equipment? too many reviewers just stick the PSU in their PC, plays minecraft, and say it works great.

3. does the PSU offer the features you need? power, connection cables, cable length (if you plan to build in full tower), warranty, modular, budget, etc.,?

Okay, so here's what I got, the TX750 V1 is a good power supply, but it's worth it to make the jump to the V2.

Unless you find the V1 for 20-30 bucks less

+1 to Dell; it's definitely not worth it to make the jump if you already own the V1.
