Help with choosing a psu
Jul 26, 2012, 2:30 PM
I've been picking and choosing parts for quite some time now for my first build but I'm getting pretty bogged down with getting my power options right. Could someone please have a look at the part's I've suggested and give me some ideas please?
I've got a budget of about £150 but I'm happy to pay a bit more to get something reliable
Also - I know there's a PSU in that build at the moment but it was just there as a potential candidate.
Overclocking is a possibility whenever I eventually feel I need it and I'm also tempted to go SLI when the times right too. So please bare that in mind

the corsair 850W is overkill for a single 670. 750W should be enough for a 24/7 overclock and 2 670s. 520-600 for a single 670 with overclock.
I'd go with the Seasonic S12 II 520W for a single gpu.
