Default Corsair 520 Psu!

I just bought the corsair 520 and after reading some reviews and looking at the corsair forums they say that with my specs it will be at its peak. I was afraid of this but since you guys recommended it and said it was more than enough i went for it.

unless you are running 8800gtx's in sli i think you will be fine. 2 8800gts' in sli with a quad core 2 hdd's 2 optical drives with a few case fans is still not too much for the psu. I am using the corsair hx520 right now and its great.

I don't think your psu would have a problem with that


I have a 520HX with a semi similar build and it's quiet and runs very well with my setup.
