    Default Upgrade Advice

    So I've decided to upgrade my video card and soon after realized that I'll probably be needing a more powerful PSU. Here are my current specs:
    939 3800x2 OC'd to 2.7
    DFI SLI-D
    x800gto
    2x1gb GSkill ZX
    9 internal hdd, 2 external
    2 DVDRW
    1 floppy
    All running on an Antec True Control 2.0 550w

    Now, I'll be replacing the x800 with either a 3870x2 or 4850 (or both if crossfireX drivers mature enough) and the 939 setup with a c2d or c2q setup. I'll definitely be overclocking.

    The power supplies I'm currently looking at:
    Corsair TX 750
    Rosewill RX950-S-B (not sure who makes this one, but the 850 and 1kw seemed to be ok)
    Cooler Master 850w Real Power Pro

    I know the OCZ 1kw is around 100-130 right now, but from everything I've read, it's going to be entirely too loud for my needs. I'd appreciate any help.

    Sounds like the Corsair will be the best fit for you.

    Would you still go with the Corsair if all 3 are around the same price?

    Thanks for the help. I got a sweet deal on the Corsair 1000w (I know it's overkill) so I ended up getting that instead
