Windows 7: Power Supply

Power Supply

So the power supply went out in the old Dell xps 410, that my wife uses. It lasted a while I got it in 2005. I am going to take the one out of mine to put in it and get me a new one. I know there are other threads discussing it I just like to start my own

The video card went out too, but I had a spare one to replace it.

Here is the one I'm thinking about

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply - Newegg.com

what do you guys think?

My current setup. I plan to eventually either sli with another 660, or get a 760/770. I am also going to get an ASUS motherboard. Edit: I will then Overclock the crap out of it

Here is what I would get: SeaSonic X750 Gold It's fully modular, runs quiet and cool, and has a really nice set of blacked out cables with it. I see it on sale all the time for $119. SeaSonic also has an X650 Gold that is identical to the 750 except for the obvious wattage difference......and I see it on sale for $99 which is a hell of a deal!

You forgot the part about where you are going to overclock the crap out of it

They are basically the same as the Corsair AX series......SeaSonic used to make all of the AX series, but I think they just make a few of the models now. Excellent PSU's.

Well that's a given, that is why I'm switching to ASUS. I have considered some higher end MSI mb's, but reading along here I see ASUS seems to be a better option.

Yeah, I have to say I loved my ASUS P67 EVO motherboard that I used with my old 2600K Sandy, and as you know I love my current board.
No doubt some of the other brands make some good boards, but for me I am certainly gonna stick with ASUS for my next build.
