Hi, im getting my new rig in 9 days and i want to ask. I got a 5850HD a 3570K a coolermaster HAF X case some 1600Mhz ram an SSD a 640GB hdd an Arctic cooling freezer 13 pro and i thought a coolermaster 600W pro gold series would be fine. Was i right? I mean 600 doesnt sound enought now that i look at it. I am also going to buy a 7870 or 7850 on christmas will the PSU be enought?
Easily. You could even crossfire any of those three cards on the SPG 600W.
However I don't really like the SPG series because they all have rather high ripple and noise on the +12V rail. On full load it is just about in spec, so it shouldn't be that much of a problem. I just don't recommend it because I would not buy a unit like that for myself.
my last question is if it will allow me to do everything on my rig. I have an ssd and a hdd i want to OC my CPU and my graphics card comes OC'ed from the box im getting a windforce 3X 7870 can i do all those at the same time with my PSU?
last question just to be sure. i did this in the coolermaster site and it said 650 W PSU. i selected my parts. 5 casing fans inc 4 20mm a 7950 an ssd a caviar black sata 2 a dvd RW drive an OC'ed 3570K and 2 sticks of 4GB 1600mhz DDR3 and an arctic cooling freezer 13 pro. hows that for a 600W SPG
