Default which PSU?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817702015
BFG 1200W psu
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171029
Cooler Master 1250
of those 2, which would you pick for a crossfire of 5970's ?

(yes i realize specs arnt out yet on the 5970s)



and do they make good PSUs?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817190025




Or get this?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703012

Default Re: which PSU?

Personally, I'd get a 1000HX. Unless you really plan on doing dual 5970's, RAID with 6 drives, top of the line Intel or AMD proc, 8/12Gb of RAM, etc. 1200 watts is alot.

In answer to your question. I've heard Xion makes good stuff, but I wouldn't trust a 6 rail system with varied amperage.

The 1000HX has dual rails and dual transformers. Each at 40 amps. Plus it's modular

I'd go for cooler master for that bit more efficiency and power. Although 1200+ watt is alot, but I see that you might need them for 2 hd5970 when they get here.

Default Re: which PSU?

ya, thats what i was thinking with the multi rails...

but this is a project thats a long ways off...

what id like is...

something like this...

(i honestly didnt think it would cost this much to go 'top of the line' lol)

and this is without the 2 5970s which together will probably be about 1200$


PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817702015

CPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115216

Paste
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835154007

Mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131352

RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227365

OS SSD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227393

Storage HDD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136313


blu ray
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106292

fan controller
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999194


Total = ~1850$

plus estimation for dual 5970s

~ 1200

total
~3050$ guesstimate




If anyone knows a better part for performance, please post.

yes i know thats basically a waste, but hey, i love performance even if you wolnt use it or need it on a normal day.

That PC would be update enough for at least 1o years id say





i already have
a monitor,
1200
V8
Keyboard/mouse

so this is basically just the insides.





EDIT:
I dont think that RAM and MOBO will work well together?
ideas?

Here is a very good link for PSU.
http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

This is a MOBO I would suggest. Its cheaper and just as good.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131365

Lots and lots of great reviews!!! If u do decide to go with it, get this RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231225
Its on the manufacturing list for p6t and it will not let u down.

And i7 920 is the way to go. I really dont know why u want to spend extra $300 on CPU..... so pointless.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115202

I had never managed to get a successful OC before upgrading to the suggested parts above. From 2.6Ghz I was able to get 4.0Ghz 24/7 in one day, so easy even a cave man can do it.

Good choice on the paste. Here is a vid u might find interesting and educational. I have the same paste by the way.

What CPU Cooler are u going with? If you want the best then go for "Prolimatech Mega Shadow Deluxe" I did a lot of reserach and its the best.

nice link, very helpfull
i think i'll bookmark that for later lol


but i am guessing this will be around 2700-3100$

and i'll update this as time goes by till i am able to afford this stuff

and for the video cards for now i put it as (4) 5870s in place for the (2) 5970s as a place holder, which made the cards about 1500 bucks for 4, which i think is a bit high of an estimation for the (2) 5970s

but hey, its better to have an idea then nothing at all.

Default Re: which PSU?

This is just my opinion but I think having two 5970's is just an overkill. I mean don't get me wrong, if u have a lot of extra cash then go for it, but $1500 is a lot of money just for vid card's. What games are u planing on playing and on what size monitor?

Ya know for about the same performance and half the price you could go with AMD. But its all personal preference in the end i guess. also, good choice on going with an ASUS board though
