Honestly, whatever you get it will be fine for your build (single GPU, no matter how powerful). So if you can't get the TX again, just get the EVGA GQ but it will be too much. Others you could look for that are good but at a similar price are the Corsair RM or HX (better) or the EVGA G2/G3/GQ - there is a GQ 750W that is a bit less than this 1000W. Good luck (but just ask if you want to check - even if I don't reply in time, someone else will) (y)
Hi mate really appreciate the reply. I did have the TX ordered, long story short amazon cancelled a lot of my order due to fraud. So I missed some prime day deals, now the psu I was gonna get is 75 this is 25 more and has really good reviews and a lot of them. Not that I think I could go wrong with a Corsair but at least like you say this will hold value Well etc. Yeah massively overkill but seemed a good price I had amazon compensate me so wud rather put the money compensated for the products that have gone up and use it on something that’s still a deal . If nothing else it can be considered future proofing :)
It would be overkill but it's not as inefficient as people would have you believe. If anything, if you ever sell it you'll probably retain more value in this than something else, but why not just get the TX series you were looking at the other day? It won't make more heat, no, I have one under pretty heavy load and it barely gets warm (700W continuous, 800W peak).
Hi would this be massively overkill with just 1 gpu and not mining? Will it produce more heat? Will it run less efficiently with using no where near capacity ?
Exactly. Also check the PSU tier list is usually how I operate: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/ Yes the OEM isn’t a vice-versa thing so Seasonic, FSP, Superflower make a range of PSUs but there are some OEMs who only make rubbish and to be avoided at all costs. Ironically of the few PSU failures I’ve had, the most recent was a Seasonic P860, one of the highest-rated Platinum units which shows they’re not infallible. On failure though it just stopped powering up, rather than a loud bang and sparks like cheap units.
