Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, i'm planning on buying a new PSU and was wondering which one to choose.

Here's my specs:

Motherboard Asus Sabertooth Z77

CPU Intel Core i7 3770K (planning on overclocking to 4.5GHz if I buy a new PSU)

GPU Nvidia Geforce GTX 660Ti (slightly memory overclocked will be more with better PSU)

HDD 1TB Hitachi Jupiter

12GB of differant RAM sizes

Case NZXT Phantom 410

2x 35mm fans

4x 120mm fans

1x 140mm fan

Unfortunatly that doesn't exist in my local computer store. :(

And I want the PSU to be modular and 80+ bronze or better.

Well look at some indepth reviews (eg, on jonnyguru, hardwaresecrets) of ~500W 80+ PSU that your computer store sells. Get one they think is quality & has the features you need, can't go wrong.

After reading on jonnyguru and hardwaresecrets I think I will choose the Corsair TX 750W M Bronze 80+.

That PSU is a good psu to buy since its a 80+ bronze.

That's pretty overkill. On that system you'll struggle to get to 400w at 100% load.

The Silverstone Strider Plus 600w is worth a look.

Anything at 700 watts and over will do you fine. It will give you a lot of head room for overclocking and the slow but sure deterioration of the power supply of time. ( I mean that the power supply will be lower in a couple of years, such as if a power supply is rated for 700 it could become 650 in some years ahead.)

What units do they offer and for what price? TXm-series are decent, but they tend to be priced higher than they should be from what I've seen.
