Hi Everyone. I have been running the system in my sig with a generic power supply (450W) for a while now. The first one died before the warantee ended so they gave me a new free one, and after about 6months to a year the 2nd feels like its dying too. So i want to upgrade the PSU. But no generic PSU will do anymore. The best brands (from what i hear) are Antec and Enermax.
Here is a list of what i would want:
-Needs to be at least 500W
-2x PCIe connectors b/c i have 2 vid cards
Nice to have:
-120nm fan (i beleive i read somewhere that this is supposed to be better than dual fans???)
-modular cables would be nice
I have been looking and have found these in my price range (don't want to go too much over $100CAD after taxes)
Antec True Power 2.0 550w
Enermax EG565P-VE (FMA) All-in-One 535w Power Supply
I also read somewhere that Antec PSUs have issues when combined with ASUS mobos...is this true?
Any recommendations on other PSUs (within the same price range) would be helpful and reviews on these 2 would be great.
