    Howdy folks! Well I am trying to do a little bit of redesigning with my machine and one of the places I am going to hit up is my power supply. With that I am wondering if some of you have a list of, or better yet, links to PSU's that have detachable part's. I think this would be ideal for me to help clear up some clutter from my machine and improve air flow.

    With that, is there a reliable way to see how much actual wattage I am using in my system? I think my current 700w is over kill for what I am currently running (specs are in my profile). Still any information would be appreciated.

    Also keep in mind that I will sooner or later upgrade to a new video card which will be at least a ATI HD 4870... I may wait and get the 4870x2 when it eventually comes out maybe even crossfire down the road but not anytime soon.. Thanks once again! :cool:

    I recommend the Corsair modular series (if that's what you mean by detachable parts). I personally have the Corasir HX620W and it's modular which means I dont have a shitload of wire cluttered inside my case (well, not from the PSU anyway :cool:). I think any maufacturers listed on this PSU guide: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=39758 that sell modular PSUs whould be good for your system. A 600+ Watter should be good enough for a 4870 and a 700+ for the 4870x2.

    Hope that helps :toast:
