this xfx
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 38566&SID=

the power supply is for a build with an i7 2600k at 4.6 and an existing 6950. right now the rig pulls 330 watts from the wall under full gpu and cpu load so a 550watt + psu would be "ok" but something under 100 dollars would be fine hopefully under 100 dollars after shipping and before rebates.

can someone find something better?

  2. 750W would be a bit overkill for this setup IMO.
    You could get away with a 650W, even a 600W will do!

    Out of those those two the XFX is better it's 80 PLUS BRONZE rated and built by seasonic ;)


    yeah i know its better but i could care less about efficiency. its less then 3-5% difference anyway. so instead of 220 a year in power for it its 225 a year. idc lol

    i was leaning towards the xfx anyway as it just looks better.

    :lol: true but i wouldn't get the silverstone don't get me wrong it's not horrible but it doesn't compare to the XFX and it's never a wise idea to skimp on PSU. ;)

    yeah you're right. if only you could get a modular unit for that price and output.... oh well i shall go for the XFX unless anyone else finds something better.
