Re: New Gaming/Editing rig
Minimum system requirements for GTX690 is 650w PSU because it only draws 300w of power. An overclocked 670 draws only 182W peak so 2 of those plus a 130w CPU is only 494w. 2 stock 680s + 130w CPU (SB-E) is roughly 520w peak usage. If you went IB those are 77w TDP. My 3960x at 4.2GHz fully loaded took less than 130w actually. With new regulations and such like I said TDP is just going to go down as the years progress. People are actually complaining lately that computer parts are taking up too much power. Unthusiasts pfffft.
Btw, I did not mean you could run a 690 and 670 SLI together. I meant, you can run a 690 or 670 SLI on a 650w PSU. Just as long as it's a quality unit.
1000w TT was a review sample from 2008, and the Corsair came in a Craigslist PC that tax return money bought. Not exactly free on that one, but close enough.
Vegas is on 11? I need to get with the times rofl.
