Default PSU advice needed!

Hello,

I'm looking for a 750W PSU to power :

i7 920 @4ghz
2 x oc'd gtx 460
3 HDD

I'm honestly out of the game when it comes to PSU. I currently have a HX620 from corsair

Which model should I consider?

Thanks!

Your PSU is just fine. Corsair HX750 or XFX750W is on sale.

Is the price gap that large between 750W to 850W? If not, go for the HX850W and be done with it.

Though I agree, that HX620 is probably fine. They were really well built.

I agree, although if you are aiming at getting a new one for efficency reasons. Corsair, XFX, or Silverstone would be good bets.
