Default Recomend me a 700w PSU

I've done the research as to my wattage needs, and I need a reliable 700w or higher (ATX 12v) power supply preferably under $150.00 USD. Ive heard mixed reviews about coolermasters, and dont really know where to turn. It has to support sATA, and i would prefer 2 fans (temperature is important to me) , lights and stuff like that doesnt matter. Thanks!

Corey

Corsair HX620: very stable, modular, all the power you will ever need.

If you want to spend 150$ on a psu, and yes it is more than you need but...

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE SST-ST75ZF ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS12V 750W Power Supply 100 - 240 V OCP,OVP,SCP,NLO - Retail

Oooo nice price on that. I'll probably have to go bigger than my 520hx when i stepup to the gx2, since i'll need 2 6pin and 2 8pin.

BTW what are you running that you need a 700w psu?

I havent built it yet, but these are my specs (roughly)

XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard
q6600
2 wd 500gb
8800gt
midi soundcard (havent decided yet)
10 (total) fans
dvd-rw
dvd-rom
4gb crucial ballistic
dual monitors

The calculator said 610w for all that, so i figured id be safe with 700w

my rig + another 2gb ram runs on the 520hx

i say 700 is overkill but both the 620 and that silverstone rock so doesnt matter which you get. the 750 is good for peace of mind i suppose ^_^

I know you didn't ask for advice on your build but i recommend against the 680i. I have had so many problems with mine. Since you haven't ordered yet, try to research another chipset. Maybe P35 or X38, I don't know what your budget or needs are.

^personally I would choose a PSU with better efficiency. 75% isn't very impressive.
