DFI Recommended Power Supplies (UPDATED October 20th, 2006!)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm newbee here, I like to say that this is an awesome forum. I learned in last two days more about Motherboards that I could ever think of. I would like to say GREAT job to every one of you.

 

Back to the post>>>

 

Ok I'm putting new rig 3700 SD/ DFI nF4 SLI-DR. Alots of Air cooling

 

1st? What is better 1X 6800gt or 2X 6600gt (OR WHAT IS RECOMMENDED by you)

 

2nd? If I buy 1st 6800gt and down the road 2nd one is that bad thing or should I wait and buy as a set?

 

3rd? Max. <$150> a good power supplies.(my pick so far: OCZ OCZ520ADJ ATX 520W Power Supply)

Any other one that i should pick?

Should it have 2 separate 12v rails? or one is ok?

 

Thanks

 

Stelth ;)

Get one 6800GT now & you can always add another later.

 

The OCZ PowerStream 520W is fine, as is this Enermax 600W for about $150.

The PowerStream 520W has one +12V rail, the Enermax has two. Either will server you well.

This is too valuable a thread, in my opinion, to let drop.....how about sticky status?

 

Here's a bump to the cause.

I was hoping on being able to use my current PSU for when i take the plunge and upgrade to NF4 SLI(thats why i chose this particular ATX 2.2 24Pin model), do you think it will be ok? Anyone else use one of this? Its been very reliable for me so far in my NFII.

Hiper HPU-4S525

AG made this a sticky when the 24pin/480W requirements first came out.

 

This week I'll be redoing the guide because of the new 150W VC's

that are suppose to start shipping within the next few months.

 

SLI PSU's for these new VC's are going to be very expensive!

Currently we are recommending a min of [email protected] & "more is better" for non-SLI &

a min of [email protected] & "more is better" for SLI.

 

In order to keep up with the needs of the latest technologies

we will be increasing the min for non-SLI to [email protected] &

the min for SLI to [email protected] & as always "more is better".

 

We will also be taking a very close look at the "true" combined +12V amperage ratings.

For example; Fortron 500W Blue Storm is really only 460W & although it list [email protected] & [email protected],

the max combined is only [email protected] The same is true of some other well respected PSU's as well.
