EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 VS EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2

DislocatedGuY

EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 or EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2, I am looking to future proof. But I dont want to spend the extra money if I don't need to. 

I might go SLI/Crossfire later on and I don't want to buy a new psu then. I will most likely overclock the cpu and maybe the gpu.

 

PC Specs:

Cpu: Intel Core i7-4790K

Psu: EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 or EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2

RAM: HyperX Fury DDR3 1866MHz 16GB

Gpu: Sapphire Radeon NITRO R9 390

MOBO: ASUS Z97-P, Socket-1150

HDD: Seagate Barracuda® 2TB

SSD: Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB

CASE: NZXT S340 or NZXT H440W New Edition Silent Ultra

If you're looking to future proof, I would stick with the 750, get an i5-6600k unless you need the Hyperthreading of an i7, and get a 240GB Crucial BX200 since they're really cheap right now.

I'm going to use VMware and such so i think the hyperthreading would be nice, and I got the kingston ssd. Might buy one more and go raid 0.

Whichever's cheaper between the two. If the price difference is minimal, 850W.

The price difference is 40 USD

You noted that "futureproofing" is a goal and buying LGA1150 CPUs isn't very "futureproof".  Maybe a 6700K?  Also, the V300 SSD's are very slow for an SSD.

Not futureproofing the rest of the computer, only the psu and maybe case.

The thing with V300s is that they aren't much faster than normal HDDs so putting them in RAID 0 would give roughly the speed of a high end single SSD I think.

If so, 750W. Should be fine for crossfire in the future.

Well than yea it's fine.

Then I will stick with the one and maybe upgrade in the future, the ssd feels fast to me, but it is just because I had an insanely slow hdd before. But will the 750W be enough if I crossfire and overclock both the gpu and cpu ?

Should be fine but if you want a lot of headroom the 850W would be better.

The next time I will be upgrading will most likely be in 3 years or so. Then the 1151 socket and ddr4 might irrelevant.

1151 and DDR4 won't be but 1150 and DDR3 will.

I think I will stick to the 750W then, if and when I'm going to upgrade I will most likely have a job, and then I can afford to upgrade the psu aswell.

Anyways I'd rather spend the extra money on a decent keyboard and headset.

The Asus Z97-P doesn't support crossfire.

I see, not sure if I am going for a better mobo or just forget it for now, most likely not going to crossfire. Thanks for telling me tho, I kinda took crossfire support for granted.
