ASUS GTX670 GeForce GTX 670 has been ordered and paid for along with a good PSU to run it with.

I'm curious what questions you had and why you needed a new PSU for a GTX670... Since it's quite a low-power card.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

Made a impuse buy awhile back rather than doing the smart thing of building and I was not satified enough with its performace

Oh well, after the GPU upgrade, it should be pretty solid then. Aside from maybe the motherboard being locked.

Yeah Mobo is a real piece....opened it up today actually to get a look at what I was in for.....suprisingly lots of room but mobo is lacking. Either way with a gen 2 i7, 670 and 750W PSU I should be set for awhile.
#6DarkZV2BetaPosted 5/31/2012 7:41:45 PM
Wow, why 750w? I doubt you'll be running any multi-gpu setups, and you could probably get away with 3 GTX670s on that.
Assuming it isn't trashy, anyway.

Rosewill, and the 500W I was recommended was out of stock at the time so I just went with reviews, Figured If i wanted to do a future build I could always swap out PSU's
#8DarkZV2BetaPosted 5/31/2012 7:50:47 PM(edited)
That's terrible. :/

If you can, return it and get something that isn't going to set your house on fire. Rosewill has very hit and miss units, and they're mostly awful.
Also, user reviews are never reliable for power supplies as your average user has no means to test or measure the output of a power supply, and Rosewill is a newegg brand, and newegg screens their reviews. They have, in the past, tried to block negative reviews of Rosewill power supplies.

now now, at least let him say which rosewill it is first. the hive series is average. the same unit as the ocz zs series. the capstone units are actually good units. although the only two (out of about two dozen) of rosewill units that came across my way in real life didn't die in a short amount of time. one a hive 550w and the other a capstone. lol.

That would be quite lucky if it were one of those two, but what if it's a Green, or some other garbage?
