    Wink Help me choose the best power supply for my pc with Quality / Price / Knowledge.

    Greetings, I have a few months buying components for a PC Gamer I want to arm myself, but buy a power supply blindly a Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus "600W" which as you will realize why "" I was not pleased many review notice of it, mostly because I want to mount the load now and in the future on my new PC.

    These are the components I put on board:

    Mother: G1.Sniper M5 Z87 (rev. 1.0).
    CPU: Intel Core i5 4670k 3.4 Ghz (Haswell).
    Liquid cooler: Seidon 120M Cooler Master (The fan I think this change by that other),
    JetFlo 120 White Led Cooler Master. «┘
    CD-DVD: ASUS DRW-24F1ST - DVD SATA SUPERMULTI Burner.
    RAM: SpecTek (4 GB DDR3-1333Mhz DDR3 SDRAM) x2 (8 Gb are another pc that had).
    Disco HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache.
    Disco SSD: Kingston Hyper X 3K 120Gb.
    Grafica: EVGA GTX 650 Ti Boost 2G DDR5 Superclocked x2 ( SLI ).
    Fuente: I hope you help me pick the best
    Gabinete: Cooler Master CM690 II Nvidia Edition ( I like the green ).
    Otros: Fan led Thermaltake Thunderblade, Fan led Cooler Master, and you'll get liquid cooling for it down there...
    I do not remember if I missed something.


    Before choosing these I read a bit and note that the best sources are Seasonic, Corsair, XFX (The order has nothing to do), for the times I did not find more, if you have known are welcome. (Note that I do all this because I'm from Venezuela and'll buy this product in the U.S., so I will not have a lot of warranty if something unexpected were to happen with the product, return shipping is expensive and want to make sure I do not get damaged or wrong again).


    On the website there is more information all had pictures of all their main specs, but allows no more than 10 images. Neither emoticons.

    Well, now the sources that caught my attention:

    XFX ProSeries 750W PSU



    http://products.xfxforce.com/pt-br/P...U/P1-750S-NLB9



    XFX Black Edition 750W PSU / P1-750B-CAG9 - 80 PLUS SILVER MODULAR


    Very, very difficult to find, is currently the only site ebay and used, yet I hear very good things about it.



    Corsair CX Series 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Bronze


    http://www.corsair.com/en-us/cx-seri...ed-modular-psu



    Corsair Enthusiast Series 650-Watt 80 Plus Bronze

    SeaSonic 650-Watt G Series 80 PLUS GOLD Certified



    http://www.seasonicusa.com/G-series-450-550-650.htm


    Seasonic M12II-750W BRONZE o Seasonic M12II-650W BRONZE



    http://www.seasonicusa.com/M12II-Bronze-650-750-850.htm


    I saw this and I loved it but I find many review it (does not seem very good):
    EVGA SuperNOVA NEX650G 80PLUS Gold Certified


    http://www.evga.com/Products/Product...120-PG-0650-GR


    I hope to find a good decision and help me, if you know better ones this very well, my $ 110 prespuesto is no step from there. Any suggestion to accept review, please I want you to give me many reviews.
    I go very often, thanks.

    A PC like this takes less then 400W without OC, it isn't a high-end PC.

    Without OC de Seasonic G series 450W is a good choice and with OC the Seasonic G series 550W.

    True, the SLI that I have is last year, this year I buy a GTX 770 or 780 and I also do OC. So I want a thinking in a future update.

    Future update, means two high-end graphics cards like the GTX 780?

    And only CPU OC, or also the graphics card.

    Currently I have an SLI GTX 650.

    Within about a month and a half or two I'm going to buy a GTX 770 or 780. And I want to OC, (this is not far but I want to).

    For two GTX 650 Ti Boost in SLI and one GTX 770 or GTX 780 with OC is the Seasonic G series 550W more then enough, maybe even the Seasonic G series 450W with a small OC, but with the 550W version you a bit more headroom.

    Okay, but are you sure that just 550W is enough?

    Pages that report consumption pc say this about 600w if I put a GTX 780.

    for $ 90 XFX 750W pro, this is worth?

    Although I could find a cheaper 600W.

    Yes I'm sure.

    A GTX 780 takes 200W average, 225W max with games and about 260W max with Furmark.

    Only for two GTX 780's.

    Thanks for your advice, one last question, is that you should know.

    A friend of mine has a source Cooler Master 600W Extreme power plus me and says if I sell it. But I did not find much on this source, I think she has no 80 + or bronze certificate.
    Think Stamina SLI GTX 650 for a boost that you have now?
    And more importantly, the GTX 780 I want to buy?
