    Need new PSU 500w+

    Hi guys, I need to buy a new PSU my last one EVGA G2 failed after 5 years.

    I'm not sure which to go for, I want to go SLI in the future and have 4 SSDs. Also I want to b future proof it for Kaby LAke Cpu when it comes out in Sept 16.

    Top Pick so far are 650W Corsair RMi Series RM650i; Or 550W EVGA SuperNOVA G2 PSU, Fully Modular; or 750W Corsair HX750i, 80 PLUS Platinum ( not sure about 3rd one it might be over kill?)

    LEt me know of your thoughts.

    Did you register your EVGA G2? If so it should have had a 10 year warranty, I think?

    You don't say which card you want to SLI with or whether you're going to be overclocking the CPU so we can't give you much help with capacity.

    SSDs use tiny amounts of power, 2-3W each and generally the trend in CPU power consumption has been downwards.

    x2 EVGA Nvidia GTX 980 Ti, and sometimes I need to connect my Older IDE harddrives. Don't really plan to OC the PC. Got a Haswell 4790k

    I recommend looking at something like an XFX 850 watt for a pair of GTX980Ti's. You will also need a big overclock on the CPU to keep up.

    Re: Need new PSU 500w+

    You need bigger than 650w if you plan to be going SLI 980ti. You need to be looking at 850w or more. Take a look at these:-

    Corsair RM850x £104.22 Review here.
    EVGA GS 850w £109.99. Review here.
    EVGA G2 850w £114.98. Review here.
    EVGA P2 850w £124.99. Review here.
    XFX XTR 850w £114.95. Review here.
    EVGA GQ 850w £99.96. Review here.

    On offer until AM Wednesday 17th Feb XFX XTR 1050w £119.99.

    EVGA has a UK Support service now. See here and here. I believe they go on serial number as well so the reciept is not always necessary.
