    Which PowerSupply

    Well I've sold my FSP everest 1010w PSU as it really didnt like my GTX 570. So im in the market for a new PSU, not looking to spend too much as I lost about £70 on my FSP PSU,

    Sold it for £60 so I can probably strech to around £90 maximum dont really wana go over £100.

    All I ask is that its a very well made PSU, Currently looking at the XFX black edition 750W psu, (around £90 delivered)

    Currently only running 1 GTX 570 but hopefully going to upgrade to SLI when I'm on placement and will be making a fulltime wage woohoo

    I can also get this one from ccl OCZ ModXtreme 700W

    Which of the two would you go for? or what would you recommend for my budget, I'm not too bothered about modular or not but As long as it can run 2 gtx 570 stable as well as the system in my sig Its all good

    Re: Which PowerSupply

    unless I'm missing something, surely 2x gtx 570 is overkill for that monitor?

    Re: Which PowerSupply

    Well for 180x1050 a gtx570 is a bit over kill and SLi is not really going to give you much
    the XFX black edition is probably your best bet http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-...-12v-135mm-fan although not in stock atm

    yea the XFX black edition is prob what I'm going to go for, or the XFX Core Edition ( non modular version of same PSU)
