Why 7 Ultimate?

Why such a large PSU? Even in triple SLI you'd only need an 850W.

i chose a large psu for expand ability, i will someday in the future add more hardware that may require the additional power

Higher performance at a lower power consumption.

That's why a 1200W PSU is absolutely useless.


Look at the power consumption from the 4XX-6XX series! You'll notice the power consumption has dropped a ton.

its always gonna be the same every 6 months get new cards got to be wise wot gfx cards ya buy . spending £200 plenty for wot you need.

A gtx 670 is about 5% slower than a 680 for a much better price.

A corsair, or seasonic, any good manufacturer etc etc 750w would be more than adequate even if you wanted to go sli in the future.
