Just realized the 760w was on slickdeals last week for $110 AR. 100w more for $30 hmm.
I probably won't need it though. I don't plan on building until maybe 2 years. Guess there's plenty of time to wait.
Was going to build a new computer for gaming at the end of this year, early next year. Did I make a mistake buying a 660w PSU? I haven't built one for about 5 years so it sounded like a lot, but reading online it seems that PSU sizes have grown? Any thoughts, can I build a good midrange, upper-midrange gaming computer with this?
Yes you will be good. Use this link to find your parts and check watts if your still not 100%
Is there any reason this wouldn't be a suitable swap for the 430w PSU in my Dell XPS8700 tower?
I used to have one Seasonic SS-760XP2 and now have a Seasonic SS-660XP2 running on my Dell XPS 8700 (I believe these two units have the same size). They are slightly longer than the stock Dell PSU. Because there are (at least in my XPS 8700) two small bulges on the computer case at where the edge of the stock PSU is that keeps the stock PSU in place, you probably need to push back these two bulges slightly (very doable in my opinion) to get the Seasonic PSU to fit perfectly. In the end I think it is a bit of a tight fit, but it works.
Is this your opinion or are you 100% sure this won't work in my XPS 8700?
I can't speak for the SS-660, but I have put seasonic X-650s in Dell XPS 8700s, and the fit is very snug, and some of the power connectors on the PSU are blocked by the cable to the connectors on the top of the case, but there are plenty of connectors for whatever you might try to stuff into an 8700 case and then more.
This PSU is perfect for running a larger GPU like a GTX 770 and silent compared to the OEM fans on the 8700.
I see no reason for more power, even with a GTX 780ti this PSU has enough.
My server is down b/c my OCZ 800W bit the dust (RMA in progress). I don't have the patience to wait, so I'm going to replace with this and then sell the RMA when it comes in. I like how this is modular. I don't need the PCIe cables at all. I'm running an 8-core FX AMD cpu, 6x 3TB 7200s, some SSDs, 3x video cards (low power), USB cards, and an HBA (RAID) card. I think this PSU is going to be perfect!!
Anyone have any troubles with the rosewill 1000w psu? I've heard that rosewill is outstanding with their psu's but those reviews on newegg are scaring me
im running bitcoin asic miners on my 1000w rosewill from the last FP deal.. no probs what so ever.. only issue is the PCIE plugs it comes with were only 3 instead of 6 like it stated (the 3 have extensions on the ends to branch it out to 6 total but thats kind of a lame sneaky way of doing things if you ask me)
