    Good day to you all. I'v got a simple question. What power supply should I choose for my rig. I'm planning on running two of these here:
    GV-R928XWF3-3GD (rev. 2.0)
    In the near future I will also get i5-4670K CPU. The online PSU calculators say 850W power supply should be enough(I think so also).
    My first choice is:
    Thermaltake Toughpower DPS 850W 14cm/80 PLUS GOLD
    or maybe:
    1000W, EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2, 80+ GOLD, just to make sure?
    Please give me some advice. BTW i will use my rig for mining, for gaming maybe after I get bored xD . Thank you.

    Corsair RM Series 850W is a quality PSU and a solid choice

    Any good 850W is good even if you are overclocking.

    Terry how hot are your cards getting during gaming? (And what case you got?)

    Ty.

    Sorry for the OT, 850w is enough.

    Corsair AX860w is a cracking PSU, and would power 2x 280s with ease.

    I got EVGA PSU awesome warranty and silent

    I vote EVGA

    My system needs about 700 I figure why run a PSU at 90% when I can run it at 50% also it is more efficient it does not mean it cost more to use because it's higher but it can do more no matter what I upgrade to in the future I never worry about power. Also PSU's degrade
