3 X 285's
What psu from NCIX.com could run this: My future rig acutally
1 core i7 920
12gb of dominator ram
tri sli gtx 285
7 case fans
1 DVD writer
1 Blue ray Writier
Keyboard and mouse
Would the corsair 1000HX 1000Watt psu be good enough?
or Enermax REVOLUTION85+ 1050Watt?
or Antec Truepower Quattro 1000W
or a 1200W psu?
Looks like NVidia recommends a 1200W PS for tri-SLI 285s. You may be able to run it less, but they only have 2 PSUs on their own list... which I would take with a grain of salt.

1000W would make me edgy. The 285's can pull just shy of 200W a piece, before overclocking, and an overclocked i7 can see north of 200W without too much trouble. While the odds of maxing both out simultaneously are slim, that only leaves around 200-250W for everything else, which can disappear pretty quickly. You can find plenty of testimonials from people running that kind of stuff on a 1KW without any trouble, but personally, (were I inclined to build a rig like that for myself), I'd definitely be looking at something stronger than a 1KW PSU.
The Corsair should be ok with that rig.
These are 2 that I would go with:
PC Power & Cooling Turbo Cool 1200 ATX 1200W EPS12V 90A 24PIN Quad SLI Ready Power Supply - DirectCanada
Silverstone Zeus ZM1200 1200W ATX12V 24PIN Power Supply 95A 12V 80MM Fan Active PFC - DirectCanada
I too would be a little reluctant with a HX 1kW...although I would definitely give it a try!
Note to everyone, the enermax 1050W beats the corsair HX1000.
Its more powerful(87A vs 80A), more efficient(certified silver), more powerful again(1050w vs 1000w)(a peak of 1250 even), better rating(Oklahoma Wolf@jonnyguru) and its the same price($280).
I wish people would stop recommending the corsair(it gets beat in every major category by the revolution 85+). No offense ZLOJACK.
Yes, it does get beat by the Enermax, you're right, but it's still easily recommendable :thumb:
The Enermax is a great choice, no question!
sorry but when your spending that kinda coin on gpu's pc power and cooling all the way ( pricey but ) this come to mind NCIX.com - Buy PC Power & Cooling Turbo Cool 1200 ATX 1200W EPS12V 90A 24PIN Quad SLI Ready Power Supply - T12W In Canada. :thumb:
