    Default Need Some Advise for PSU

    Friends, how are you all? I need your kind suggestions for purchasing a new PSU for my new gfx card. I am thinking about GTX 970. and after a lot of confusion i think i am going for Gigabyte G1 GTX 970 (please correct me if i am wrong, 1. back plate, 2. 3 fan, 3. blue LED, 4. out of the box overclocked, 5. lower price).

    Thermaltake TR2 is not a good PSU, but as you know in Bangladesh we do not have very much room to buy XFX or other high quality PSU. I saw Seasonic on only one shop and in my opinion this

    But the thing is Gigabyte G1 GTX 970 is required 223 Watt (according to a reviewer). So which PSU should i buy? I was looking through some sites where they are saying product is not a running product so getting warranty might be difficult (though they are offering 5 years warranty)

    My choice is Thermaltake TR2 600 Watt (80+ Gold certified) or Gigabyte PLUS 650 Watt (80+ Bronze Certified). The price is almost same.
    Please advise me the best option for my PC. For your convenient I am giving my PC details below;

    CPU- Core i5 3570
    RAM- 2*4GB – XPS Adata
    HDD- 3* 500 GB- WD Black
    Fan- 5*120mm Thermaltake pure (blue LED)

    GTX 970 actually takes less TDP than that. When you read 223W it meant full system including processor, RAM and SSD.

    970 actually takes 170W at max capacity, will vary though if you overclock it

    Well brother I have done a ton of research on GTX 970 because few months back I really really wanted to buy one specially the G1 Gaming version. During my research I found out that Maxwell architecture is weird and Nvidia kinda bends the truth when it informed the specs about the maxwell gpus. Maxwell is very efficient when it comes to power draw but that also makes the power draw fluctuate like hell specially when u overcloack it. Since G1 Gaming has the hugest factory overclock its power draw can at times spike over 300 watts. Toms Hardware tested it.

    A good 500W PSU will be able to run it but for the peace of mind I would not recommend that. Both of your choices are good, if you contact @VANGUARD I am sure he can get u Pulse 650 for 6K. You can go with either of your choices without any worries
