Windows 7: PSU Recommendations for ASUS EAH6850

I agree with sygnus and Wishmaster. Go with Corsair, Antec or Seasonic. I have a Corsair 650 and 750. They have both powered several systems and have not missed a beat.

The TX650 from Corsair showed up again and if I have the money I'll get it (it's about $150/€100) but I've got a question. Would a modular PSU improve the airflow so much that it's worth the money? Because if it would, I will look for something with less power like 550W but modular unlike the TX650.

The Antec BP550 is a modular power supply, I have two of my three computers I have built recently using them, and I use the earthwatts 650 in mine.

Modular makes installation very easy. If you have no place to store cables out of the way, it can help airflow. But, as far as I am aware they do not make a modular PSU smaller than a 650W. But, the TX650 is an excellent choice and you could store cables in an unused CD/DVD drive bay if there is not room behind the motherboard.

Not really, especially if you practice good wire management. The only thing modular PS's are good for in my opinion is helping reduce wire clutter, but again, good wire management can overcome that.

My two cents.

I don't know if they still do, but my Antec 550 was modular - Antec Neo HE 550 power supply

Thanks... so modular PSUs aren't that beneficial. It depends on the money tho. If I find a modular PSU at a reasonable price, I'll buy it.

@LiquidSnak I love how this model is $120 in my country but I've already seen it and added it to my list.

@boogieboy I think OCZ are so high-quality they aren't available in my country.

Well the EAH6850 is $240 in my country whereas it's $180 at Newegg, so everything is sort of more expensive here and Newegg don't ship to Europe.

For $240 at Newegg I'd have bought both PSU and the EAH6850 but here it is $360 xD
