OK, thanks for posting back. Nothing wrong with what you're doing but, giving us the whole story to begin with would have been a big help to us.

Take a minute and let us know how it all works out for you.

I'm still an AMD guy, but if you post your intended Intel build and main focus (gaming, CAD, graphics, internet, etc) you'll find a crapload of good suggestions.

I like lo buck builds and you seem to be interested in the most bang for the buck.

Thumb Up!!!

I wouldn't buy either psu unless they were my only choices. Where are you? Down Under?

That video card wouldn't be my first choice either.

Do you live where hardware choices are limited?

That said, either psu will run that video card. The Fortron unit would be my choice over the Thermaltake if I were forced to buy one over the other.

sorry new to forums, plus these items are from systems i have scavenged, not purchased, eventualy will be upping and purchasing i7, dual sli 3gb DDR5 NVIDIA graphics and going to 32GB 1600Mhz RAM if you can advise a decent affordable mainboard and suitable PSU for that build would be good aswell, but for now cheers i'll stick with the 500 +80, and yes from aus, no hardwares not a prob but as mentioned, built from scavenged parts

Sorry Skip, I think your "most bang for the buck" theory was just catapulted out the window. Talk about overkill. lol. How do you go from a low end Geforce 610 to 2x GeForce GTX 670s?

as mentioned will be hi end multi tasking 3d rendering, for 3d music clips, not just 3d animation (yes that) but passive and active 3d render for 3d TV, as well as sound mixing,/editing video mix/edit, and web design, as well as game devel dabbling, the initial question was for current build riider, skip was referring to future proposed intel build, not my scavenged bang for buck build.

The deal Wolf is that we can't offer advice unless we know what we're working on.

riider made the point that we are talking about two entirely different builds in the same thread. That's confusing and it might be a better idea to start a fresh thread with your proposed new build. The Intel guys can then pick you apart and you have a better chance of ending up with a machine that will do exactly what you want it to do.

I'm too lame on late Intel stuff to listen to...at all...period.
