    Need help with getting a new Power Supply

    Here are my three options, all similarly priced. Wondering why the 650w is the same price as 750w? Shouldn't there be a difference there?

    PSU #1 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...pk=antec%20620

    PSU #2 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139020

    PSU #3 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139040

    Any other suggestions are welcome in that price range

    Thanks guys!!

    Edit : this will power an AMD FX-6300 Six Core Vishera and an AMD Radeon 7870 LE Tahiti

    quality wise the Antec NEO ECO 620C is perfectly fine. No idea which kind of system it's going to power but it's like more than enough power.

    GPU: Asus 280X TOP (1080MHz/1700MHz) RAM: Corsair LP/LV white 8GB 1600MHz

    Get the Antec Neo while it is still at that incredible price.
    Intel i5-3570K @ 4.7GHz | MSI Z77 Mpower | Noctua NH-D14 | Corsair Vengeance LP White 1.35V 8GB 1600MHz

    it will power the Tahiti and 6300 with no problems? And it doesnt matter that it isn't bronze or above certified? Sorry about being cautious, just want to make sure about these things.

    Price wise, the 650 and 750 are the same price becuase the 650 is better quality than the 750.

    Regardless, skip both and get the Antec Neo hands down.

    You never really need to get any better the Bronze level 80+.

    Power wise you're fine. I dont think that system will even break 350w.

    The Antec Neo is bronze? I thought it was just standard? or maybe bronze is the standard haha, sorry just that it says "80 plus certified" not "80 plus bronze"

    And alright guys I might get the Antec, just would like some more opinions

    The Antec is "80+", but anything over "80+ Bronze" and you start wasting money on gimmicky technology. Effectively, you pay like 60-90 bucks more on a Gold or Platinum, and save about $10 a year on power. Assuming your computer is on 24/7. Less, if your computer is on less.

    Right, ok so for 30$ I'm thinking the Antec Neo is a steal. I was weary due to the 620 Watts, I was scared it wouldn't be powerful enough for the cpu/gpu.

    Funny thing, that. As computer hardware gets more powerful, it gets better, too. My old GeForce 460 uses 160w. I upgraded to a 660, which performance wise is about 60-70% more powerful. The 660 uses 130w. Power went up, electrical usage went down. A lot of people still think that 500w is the bare minimum for even the most basic office system, when most gaming systems dont even break 500w. Of course, you should have headroom of 50-80w just for good measure... But 620w is more than enough. The only reason I dont recommend lower, is simply because it's a good PSU, and the price is fantastic.

    Antec Neo Eco 620C is built on that exact platform, I don't think it is worth paying more than double the price to get the modular cables unless that is what he is looking for.
