Hello,
Can someone just scan these over for me and tell me which is the better deal for this graphics card (Galaxy GeForce GTX 560 Ti GC 1 GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 DVI/DVI/Mini-HDMI SLI Ready Graphics Card, 56NGH6HS4IXZ) and this PC (ASUS Essentio CM6830-US-2AA Desktop (Black))

That is only pulling 620 for about the same price. Why would I get that one?

Because it is much higher quality, and can actually output 620W.

The GTX560ti requires a 500W PSU with at least two 75W 6-pin PCIe power connectors and should have at least 32A on the 12V rails. The M12II-620 is an excellent PSU and more than sufficient for the 560ti; the M12II-520 with 40A on the 12V rails and two PCIe power connectors is actually more than sufficient, too. A great PSU deal right now is the Antec Neo Eco 520: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's based on the same basic design as the M12II and is made by Seasonic - a phenomenal PSU mfr. Review of the 620W version of the Neo Eco: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cases/display/psu-600w...

The GX 750 will slowly kill your computer over time, multiple reviews have confirmed that it and the other units in the GX series have serious design flaws that result in unacceptable output power.


The eXtreme Power Plus series is a turd in a shiny box that is going to kill your system even faster than the GX 750, neither of them can output more than about 70% of their power without damaging your system while the M12II 620 can output 100% of it's rated capacity without an issue. No eXtreme Power Plus unit has every received a passing grade from a review.

For a single 560 TI you don't even need 600 W, a good 500-550 W unit would do just fine, something like the XFX 550 W would save you a fair amount and still has plenty of power for your system.

Outstanding PSU....overkill for a system with a single GTX 560ti, but a great PSU.

It is a decent PSU, but the TX650 is a better quality PSU and has more amps on the most important rail - the 12V rail.

Yes it will work; the ModXstream 600W and the 500W PSUs will also work.
