This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

So I just RMA'd my PSU. Decided to sell my 7950 for $400.

I agree with those saying its not good enough.

It might be good enough at first but all psus become less efficient as they are used.

It's cutting it really close though. Won't have any room for overvolt + overclocking. I'd personally recommend dropping down to the MSI GTX 770 2GB, then use the spare money on a better power supply(750Watt). It'll come in handy in the future because you'll be able to crossfire and stuff.

Honestly, you most likely wont have any difference in performance between the 4GB and 2GB.


Aren't games already starting to use more than 2GB at high settings at 1080p?

You guys do realize the closer you get to a psu max output the lower the stability gets.

A 770 can use 380w under load it's self, that's not even counting the rest of his components, that 430w with probably bad quality will be struggling.

The 380W shown in that diagram are system loads not just the card.

They do, but going over the limit isn't the end of the world. The game will keep running well. It'll just have to swap the memory more often. The VRAM is so fast that usually there is not a big performance hit if any.

Even at 5780 x 1080 with tripple monitors while running heavy games at max settings, there was virtualy no difference in performance.

Ur right I was thinking 395 TDP from my rig, forgetting I have sli.

Hm...maybe the 2GB version is plenty then. Especially if it's considerably cheaper

Not only completely false but literally impossible.

75w from the PCIe lane, 150w per 8 pin connector is the max a GPU could possibly use because that's all those parts are allowed to provide. My 670 only has 8+6, I'm not sure about 680s/770s but I'd assume they're 8+6 as well, meaning 75+150+75=300 max total, even then that's what can possibly be delivered, not what's actually used in a realistic scenario. If it's 8+8 then it's 375 total possible (I really doubt this since ref 780 is 8+6) but if you're trying to say 380 is a typical draw load for a 770 (Or any card really) then it's obvious you have no idea what you're talking about.
