@imort: @mirado: They arent more efficient becouse they are bigger. A 650W will outperform a 1200W at 500W load unless you double or even tripple the money.

OP wants to SLI 980s... I don't think money is the worry here ;) But you do have a point. Besides, the efficiency dips at very low loads as well.

The downside with having a overspecced PSU is many.

  • its a lot of money down the drain
  • It will be loud
  • It will be hot
  • You will get a large powerbill becouse its large and probably not very efficient if you only draw half power from it.

What!? No!

A PSU will only generate what is needed. If your PC requires 400W a 800W PSU will generate only 400W. This is no sweat for a 800W PSU so it won't be loud and it won't be hot.

The closer to the PSU's maximum output you get, the less efficient it gets. A 800W PSU will be more power efficient than a 450W PSU at generating 400W, assuming they are of same quality.

With this in mind, for the OP's system, I would get at least a 550W 80+ Gold-rated PSU for the current system and at least a 850W 80+ Gold for the SLI-build. The 750W PSU will be able to generate the power needed, but will be inefficient.

I've used this power calculator for my estimates.

So many to choose from, but I've got to go with this:

I'll trade you the Mantis Cruiser for either one of those.

I solved the problem in 3 easy steps.

  1. Uninstall Avast
  2. Reboot computer
  3. Install Microsoft Security Essentials

I really dislike the direction Avast has taken lately anyway, so good riddance.

Don't shoot down UFOs over water. If you do, you won't be able to salvage it.

I had fun with 2012, until I started playing online. The game was full of trolls that would just stop when you were about to finish them. I left it going one time, for three fucking hours and that fucker still couldn't handle defeat. I was hoping for a better game this year, too bad.

Really? The old games had a turn timer.
