Agreed, for the extra few $$'s I would just grab the 750w, if you use my posted list above as a guideline, everything should come to around 800, give or take $50 depending on the exact choices you make. That being said the VX450 IS enough for your use, but for the extra 10 or so bucks, why not.
Unlike most items, a good PSU choice can be good future proofing. PSU's are about the ONLY item you can somewhat plan as future proof, even if new connectors come out, 99% of the time there are be adapters you can use, electricity is electricity, it rarely ever changes. Unless everyone decides to ditch the 3.3V, 5V and 12V standard, you could use a PSU amde 10 years ago thanks to adaptors.
Thats just my take on it, like I said the VX450 will power everything in your new rig with no issues.
Alright, sounds good! =D Guess I'll go with the 750w.
Thanks for all your help Chilly, really appreciate it
I'll think this is the card to price match. " I dont know what card has a nicer cooler on it stock but just get an aftermarket cooler.
Unfortunately I don't think NCIX will PM that card as the CC one is AE/48500+T352 while the NCIX one is XAE/48500+T352. CC as well lists 0 stock so I doubt I would be able to find one. Oh well, thanks for the recommendation though!
Was also looking at the HIS HD4830, but the bundle doesn't include a DVI-HDMI adapter... No idea why they don't.
