Corsair Tx-750 vs Antec HCG-900

Hey there people,

Im stuck

you see i originally wanted the corsair tx-750. because it is a trusted brand and it was enough power.

but now i see the antec hcg-900 is only $9 more. it is a 900w power supply with multi-gpu support. in simple terms im future-proofing myself.

  1. The HCG 900 is a great PSU but it is a waste of money ($9) if you do not need the added power ever!

    Whether it says so or not (certification requires paying Nvidia and AMD to do so), the Corsair absolutely CAN do SLI/CF, and comfortably. It has 4 PCIe connectors, so that right there is multi GPU compatible and 750W is plenty for almost any SLI/CF setup.

    yeah ok so corsair can support multi-gpu's but is 750w enough to run two gtx 570s? thats why 900w might be better?

    I think 750W would do it, but if you want to OC the cards any, I would recommend 850W or above, so yeah, I guess go with the Antec, IF you're absolutely certain you will SLI some day.

    For the extra $9 go with the Antec!

    well im not THAT ceartain but 9$ for some pretty good futureproofing seems GREAT! I mean does the corsair have anything better than the antec for me to want it more?
  7. No, both are great recognized quality brands that are trusted.
  8. I would take the HCG Series over the TX Series, but again both will work regardless of setup.

    Nah, for $9, it's pretty much a win-win situation, lol. It'll just be less efficient than it can be early on without the second GPU because it'll be WAY more than what you need to begin with.
