Think of it this way, if you go buy Nvidia's specs for powering a GTX295, they call for a 680watt psu, xx amperage. So by Nvidias terms, your actually underpowering your 295, BUT YOUR NOT! Your corsair (solid performer) has 1 12v rail with plenty of juice. I'll never understand the reasoning behind some people (not you) buy $2000 worth of parts for there PC, and power it with a $70 chinatech 1 jiggawatt PSU, that is utter ****......

Because ill just get refunded $139 for the pos 800 watt psu and keep using the 620hx.

I bought the 620hx after 100 hours of research last June ('08) to conclude the 620hx was one of the best for an 8800GTX. It was great for the GTX280 and now I'm confident its fine for the 295.

But is it a waste to get a 750 watt corsair? ( ) That was the big question today newls1. Would the extra 130 watts make a difference considering i have 5 hdds, just 1 dvdrw, but a dual tv card. tytytyty
