    Note : too many people have told me that the 650w isn't enough so I picked the ( SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W )
    I'm confused. You've been told that 650 is MORE than enough. The X750 is just a waste of money at this point. Get the proper PSU, and either save $75, or get a bigger SSD or HDD. You asked for how to get better, or spend less cash, then do the opposite >.>

    are you sure ? because I got tired some people say it's more than enough and it's an over kill .. some other say it's so weak for this build XD

    If you are sure i'll confirm the 650vs again and won't put a second thought into the PSU !

    Who says that, exactly? Because they're probably the same people who get told to overbuy when salesmen see $_$.

    650 IS enough. But it's also more than enough. You're wasting money. I'm using a more powerful card (wattage wise) and have a 520w PSU, with overclocking.

    ahaa ! didn't know that XD ..

    ok if the 660w is an over kill too .. so what is the best PSU for MSI N680GTX Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 680 2GB ? planning to overclock it in the future

    and is there diffirence between Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s and Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s

    and which manufacturer is better ?

    I know too many Questions

    WD Black is faster and has a better reputation.

    If you plan to overclock and still have a nice overhead on the PSU something around 500W is enough.

    You could easily get away with the Antec VP-450, as the system wouldn't even break 370w.

    Thermal and Power Specs GTX 680:
    98 C Maximum GPU Tempurature (in C)
    195 W Maximum Graphics Card Power (W)
    550 W Minimum System Power Requirement (W)6
    Two 6-pin Supplementary Power Connectors


    will this PSU cover all the requirements including Two 6-pin ?

    That PSU is not 80+ certified and only delivers 432W on the 12V rail.

    Get a XFX 550W or something instead.

    Looks like you get the same performance but for less money.

    A better cooled and quieter GPU.
    A decent cooler for 1/4th of the price.
    A good enough PSU for half the price.

    Thanx man you are the best *_^

    can I max Guild wars 2 and BF3 and 2013 games with 60+ or 45-60 at least ?

  17. #37
    It will do very well with those games, don't worry. In GW2 you might see an issue with framerates dropping, but that has more to do with the game itself rather than your setup.

    thnks guys for every thing
