    Default PSU calculator or just go with the 1200w

    I was looking to see what PSU i needed for my build i found a old PSU calculator on the net and it was out dated but it said i needed a 1200w PSU.

    Im building:
    2 x WD raptors 300gig with upgrades in the future.
    2 x WD green 1TB
    1 x Sapphire Radeon HD5870 Vapor-X.
    (1x sapphire radeaon to be added in future)
    2 x Dvd-RW
    12 gig Ocz 6 x 2gig gold
    i7 920 2.66Ghz
    eVGA E758 A1
    Zalman extreme 10x cooler
    Plus standard case fans.

    Whats your input on PSU needed i currently have this one selected but kind of pricey if you know what i mean. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153054

    Yea that calculator is much better, did not find the i7 920 on it but i played with a few of them and did not see much difference in power needed. With all possible future upgrades as in the next few months the 1000w is more than enough but the money differance is not that big so ill keep the 1200w.

    Thanks again guys you will have me placing my order soon enough.

    I know this is not the place but what is a TEC cooler and are they seperate from just a heat sink.

    hey just a thought... maybe you might want to consider getting a modular psu. one where all the wires are not hanging out the back and you can connect the ones you want. might make wiring a tad easier plus there are some cool ones with led connections.
    check out these ones

    If you want a pimped modular kilowatt+ PSU......take a gander at the Xigamatek NRP-HC1201. It's a MONSTER of a unit, nice blue LED, tons of modular cables with lots of slack length. Great voltage regulation. Very nice.

    corsair is very reliable. the only person i knew who got a Tagan PSU had it blow up on him, and he replaced it with a corsair.

    the power supply is the last component you'll want to skimp on/.
