    Default Another help me choose a PSU thread

    Hey guys, I know you get a lot of these threads but I figure I might be in a different situation than some of the other threads here because I have a fairly large amount of savings I could possibly take advantage of on some corsair PSUs via rebates and combos that are active now.

    This is the build I'm planning with overclocking on the cpu and gpu:
    cpu:4770k
    gpu:gtx670 (I'm getting the gtx760 when it's out next week but it's the same thing)
    hard drives: Toshiba 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    2.5" 7200rpm WD black 500gb drive in external enclosure powered via USB
    ssd: Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
    motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H
    cpu cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 120XL 86.2 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (doubt these draw much)
    optical drive
    ram: 2x4gb ddr3-1600 sticks at 1.5v

    Here's the deals I'm able to get through rebates and combos:
    HX650 - $90
    HX750 - $90 (i heard these two are different manufacturers?)
    TX650v2 - $50
    TX750v2 - $70
    CX750 - $55

    I realize these are all probably overkill but I'm wondering if there is something better I should be going for at this price point. I'd like to be able to add another 2 hard drives and the piece of mind for the ability for a second graphics card would be nice but is unlikely to happen. Modular cables would be nice but not necessary. Is there something cheaper or better I should be going for?

    Can only get Corsair?

    CX750 is overkill, but a great bang for your buck.

    Yeah corsair has a lot of rebates going now and one of their products I'm getting has all of those as possible combos. I actually missed out on the HX750 for $75 a couple of days ago.

    edit: It looks like I can get the CX750M for $65 too. My case is fairly roomy I don't think I'll need modular cables for $10 unless it has better internals.

    Sorry, slightly OT, but if you're mostly into gaming i would consider getting the 4670k and the GTX770....

    I'm still undecided as far as i5 or i7 goes. I just put the 4770k there to be safe. I'm looking to do some streaming and am trying to see if 8 core x86 consoles will make an i7 worth it for future games, so it might be worth getting.

    Thanks for the help with the PSU. I got the CX750.

    Just FYI. The HX650 Bronze and HX650 Gold are SeaSonic. The HX750 Silver and HX 750 Gold are CWT.

    CX750 is a solid deal indeed.
