View Full Version : is Sweex Gold 650W any good?

05-18-08, 10:00 AM
Hello there, i found this low-price 650w PSU on the market and it was well below for example the famos Corsair 650w PSU: http://www.sweex.com/BA000110.

So my question is, is the Sweex 650w any good? Is it enough for a normal system with say, two 9600gt in SLI? Because i am a little short on money and wanna keep the prices down and still have a SLI computer. Will it do the trick or should i really get an corsair 650w? The Sweex is about 60 dollars, and the corsair is about 110 dollars where i live. So the difference in price is pretty big.

Thanks for the help!

Theres only 25 amps on the v12, I'd say anything bellow 36 (across duel rails) is pretty ****ty. I guess it could work, what kind of rig are you trying to power with it?

edit: I'd say youd probably want something better for sli 96 gts.
