    Default Looking for a good PSU

    Hey I'm upgrading my case and would like to know what PSU to get? I'm looking for a white PSU since my case is going to be white. I mainly play games and use my PC for everyday stuff.

    Currently I have a NZXT HALE 90 at 850. I like but it's going into my GF's rig. I'm building her one up with my spare parts. Platinum or gold is what I'm shooting for. Thanks everyone!

    If it's for the build in your sig, you could go with a 550w unit without an issue.

    If it has to be white, your only options would be seeing if NZXT has an old Hale90 550w laying around or getting an 80+ Bronze Hale82 V2 550w or PC Power & Cooling Silencer MKIII 500w unit.

    Hi Tator Tot. I plan on going SLI or X-Fire in the future with newer GPU's so I want has much power has I can get to have overhead. I'm looking for something in the 750-850 range!

    What about this one from NZXT it's bronze but it's a 700 PSU NZXT HALE82 V2?

    The older NZXT Hale90 650W or 750W is a much better choice.
    The NZXT HALE82 V2 700W is quite expensive.

    That one is a better choice indeed. Its a Super Flower Golden Green based PSU, just like the old NZXT Hale90.

    Questions concerning SLI or X-Fire in the future, would this PSU uphold ok? I might order another 7870 and X-Fire that. Would I be safe doing so? You guy's are the best! Thanks so much!

    A 750w could hold up to 2 x GTX 780's or HD7970 Ghz Editions.
