I won't be doing crossfire; I will however be Overclocking. How much power would I need if everything was at load?
750w should be safe. It's what's recommended for that gpu also
Thanks :D I'll go for the 750
I agree that 750w is good if you want to be safe and overclock. But you could get away with 650w if you want to save abit of money. Technically you would be alright with 600w aswell, but it's up to you if you wanna risk it.
Thanks! I'll go with the 750w
You'd be fine with 650 watt. You should get about optimum efficiency with that.
I'd be good with the 650 watt but I think I'll go for 750w you can never be too safe!
Well you can be too safe. If you go with a PSU way higher then you need you actually lose some of its efficiency. you'll be good with a 750 watt though. :)
Oh lol, excuse me; I only started researching about computer parts a couple of months back and I still have a lot to experience and learn lol, what do you mean efficiency?
PSU have varying efficiencies depending on how much power they're supplying. this is an example. :)
Yup. Also a reason you shouldn't get a psu that's too close to your operational usage (consistent, not peak) as it is less efficient when it runs at a high load... And you also wouldn't wat to run a 1500w psu on a system that will see maybe 300-500w at any time... Its just way overkill and not efficient. That chart was an excellent thing to post.
