    So when the dust from all the news that's fit to print from Turkey settles, and all the PSU pros, cons and calculator reports are in. Wouldn't it be just as sensible and cost effective to buy the 850 watt Corsair from the jump. Even with capacitor aging figured in, it will still most likely have the balls to run a second big video card, even three years from now.

    I don't particularly like step up selling, but the OP has been telling all of you that he's likely interested in a second video card. Yet you persist in essentially telling me that buying a PSU twice is "cost effective", when it really isn't.

    Incidentally it's on sale; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139011 And also incidentally, the warranty is SEVEN years, parts and labor!



    You are of course aware, that "outervision" powers all most all the PSU calculators on the web, not just Thermaltake?

    Definitely, the best option really, a HX7/850 will have you sorted for the next 7 years minimum, and a requirement if the OP wants dual GPUs. :)

    I think it's time to stop talking, and start building. ;)

    Nah, I feel this is definitely "A 4 page thread", so a little further to go yet! :haha:
