I'm going to push mindweaver down today
Bogi, you're speaking my language. What's worse is you're within road trip distance for me.
You're quite a ways last time I checked, 15 hours to be exact
I like driving (alot), and I've driven for 18 hours straight before. You're within reach. >=)
Not before I can tip the border patrol folks about you crossing
"Hello border patrol? Yea, some Canadian guy saw some screen-shots I posted online showing the numbers my computer can achieve in an online distributed computing project and said he was turned on. I was wonderin.... Hello? Border patrol?"
I can just see it now..
See you already know what's going to happen I bet you like that too
Any advice on my PSU question from a few posts back?
Heh, sorry. My tomfoolery got the best of me.
The PSU may work, as they over estimate the requirements of the video cards. However, I believe the GTX 260 itself consumes 182ish watts (though the website claims 270). So if I'm not mistaken, which I probably am, you'd have very little margin on the power supply. Other than that, I'm not sure if the amperage supplied on the 12v rails is enough, doesn't the 260 require 38amps?
^ I do believe you are right, I guess I should look for a new PSU as well. I will probably move the Rosewill 600 with the 260 to the other computer.
For future proofing (GT300 and possibly SLI) how many amps on the 12v rail should I be looking for? My estimate is 65-70A, close?
That is enough for 3 260s. A Corsair TX750 is what I used.
Agreed, I used a PC Power & Cooling for my 750w. The only thing, is if you do Tri SLI, you'll be hard pressed to find enough PCI-E connectors for 3 dual slot cards. 850w power supplies usually rectify this, and is mainly the reason I had decided to use them.
Thanks guys. You think a Antec True Power 750 would work out well? I read some reviews that spoke highly of it. I think its between that (can get if for ~$90 off local seller BNIB) or buying a brand new Corsair 850 online later on. Pretty sure I will hold off on a new GPU until GT300 comes out, then I will decide to buy them or the cheaper GT200s.
Wish I would've had the cash to buy that Corsair 750 when you were selling it Mike!
That is a good power supply. It has 62A total on the +12V rails, and it's sli certified to run 2 GTX 275s. It's also 80 plus bronze.
Excellent, now time to price haggle- no reason not to try and save
I just got THIS a week ago. Check out the reviews, it has 4 12V rails with 25A each. You can't beat it for $95 with free shipping.
+1 for Bogmali turning me on to that PSU. It's a no brainer. Corsair 750WHO?
I got one about three weeks ago. I feel like I got ripped off because I paid $100 with free shipping.
Thats the same PSU I was talking about Well if the haggling doesn't go through I will buy it on Newegg.
Do you think that Gavin guy posting in the reviews section on newegg for this PSU is the same Gavin from HWC?
Not sure, he could be
