Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CE, CB, TUV, FCC, CCC - Power Supplies

this power supply should be good enough for your needs. It provides enough connectors for all the hardware you wish to use. It is also equip for enough power to enable future use of two 9800gx2's.


I HIGHLY recommend you wait for mid September-October and look into a Nehalem build. The processor is much much faster. It also uses DDR3 ram so you won't lose any performance there. But if you buy now and wish to upgrade you'll need a new CPU and motherboard.

From what I hear, nehalem won't be the breakthrough core architecture was.

You guys should not recommend them to wait.

I don't think any of the people are thinking of spending over 1.5k in hardware.

my 2 cents.

Yes, it's a relatively quiet PSU. And yes, it'll more than support SLI. It has a single +12V rail with 60A, so you could even run four cards that have ~100W TDP on it

well, with what he has listed and then my PSU recommendation he is spending about $1500. The mobo he has is about $350..which is about $50-100 more than what X58(for Nehalem) will be...and his CPU is $560 which is almost double the price of a Nehalem chip...and it'll be slower. So yes, I think it's worth waiting.
