Antec TruePower Classic 550W Power Supply Unit  - PCSTATS.com Antec TruePower Classic 550W Power Supply Unit
Mon, Jun 16 2014 | 4:00PM | Filed under: Power Supply| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

AMD just recently launched their flagship R9 295x2 mGPU graphics card which requires no less than a massive (for a single graphics card) 1000W power supply unit to efficiently run in most high end systems. Same goes for the GeForce Titan Ti by NVIDIA which is although less power hungry it still requires a good 750-800W PSU. Because of that the next logical thing would be for us to focus on high wattage PSUs but since we are all well aware that not everyone can afford to spend $1500 or $750 on a graphics card we decided to go the other way around and get our hands on several lower wattage models. A couple of weeks ago we reviewed the latest TruePower Classic 650W 80 Plus Gold Certified PSU by Antec which left us with the best impressions both because of its performance and its price. Today on our test bench we have the 500W variant to see if the same outcome applies for the entire TruePower Classic line (at least for more than just 1 model).

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
