[URGENT] Need help on PSU on my gaming rig.

Hello there,
I first wanna thank everyone who replied to me on my earlier question about choosing the best hardware for my gaming rig.


The final specs are


1.Cooler Master HAF 922
2.Intel 3.4 GHz FCLGA1155 Core i5 3570K Processor
3.ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard
4.Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Cooler
5.Cooler Master Megaflow 200 RED LED Silent Fan Cooler
6.Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) PC RAM (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10)

Monitor, OS, KBD+MS is not required....


Now the confusion is on selecting the PSU .... The reason why is that right now i have a GTX 285 GFX card and i was gonna buy Seasonic S12II 620 Watts PSU for it. Now this GFX card requires two 6 pin connectors. So will it be compatible with my GFX card and the above hardware. And i also after a couple months later i plan to upgrade my GFX card to GTX660 2GB DDR5. So my bro says that we should go for Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2UK 850 Watts PSU. which is costing me $60 more

This the link for the website for the power supplies that i m placing the order with....

I request you to please help me in selecting the best one.

  1. Forget it. Seasonic S12II 620W will be enough for gtx285 and it consumes more power (about twice the amount) than gtx660. There is no need to invest more money in PSU, spend it on faster ram if you are going to overclock or save it for some beer.

    Edit:
    By the way, it's better to buy dual channel memory kit instead of a single stick. Have a look at:

    Thanks bro for your reply... But i wanted to ask something which is may be stupid that does this has two 6 pin connectors for my GTX 285 cards ??
  4. According to manufacturers site http://www.seasonicusa.com/S12II-Bronze.htm it has one 6 pin PCI-E connector and one 6+2 PCI-E connector, so you can connect your gtx285 without a problem.
