Ofcourse, it looks like a gaming computer.
Now my problem is, I am getting one of these power supplies, but I am confused which one is better and which one to get:
Seasonics X-560 http://www.seasonicusa.com/NEW_X-series_560-660-760-850.htm
OR
Seasonic g series 550 http://www.seasonicusa.com/G-series-450-550-650.htm
I see that x series have many features, but the g series has protection such as ocp, opp, scp,ovp,uvp, otp and double ball bearing fan. Are these features included in x series or should I get g series. Please, serious and urgent, Help please.!!!

  1. Either one is fine but get the Seasonic g series 650W or Seasonics X-660 kinda presses it close with a 550W don't you think i mean nVidia itself recommend 500W for a single 670.

  2. I didn't understand. Please explain.
  3. Best answer
    The 550w PSU is just fine. As to whether to get the x or g series, it's really a toss up. They both have all the protections. Go by price.

    I mean do you ever plan to buy another in the future if not then your fine if yes or maybe that power supply is not enough :)
  5. Either Power supply is good. Don't over think it. Seasonic is probably the best and most well-respected power supply manufacturer out there.

  7. Thank you very much, abekl sir, I'll get x 560, cause it has 19 features while g 550 has only 13. Where and how did you come to know that x series also has all protection features?
    Sorry bigcyco1 sir you missed the best answer for a slight point.

  9. Hello, abakel sir, I've asked a question, how and from where did you come to know that x series also has all protection?
  10. I read it in the use manual that the whole series has the following protections.
    OPP/OVP/UVP/SCP
