Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Thermaltake Toughpower W0133RU 1200W PSU - Thermaltake Toughpower W0133RU 1200W PSU
Thu, June 14 2007 | 6:08PM | PermaLink Feedback?
We now have 3D graphics with SLI and Crossfire technology and today's high-end gaming systems can require that much power for a single video card alone and sometimes more. The GeForce 8800 GTX video card with 768MB of ram that I want in my monster gaming rig requires 175 watts and nVidia recommends at least a 450W power supply unit. And that's just for one card. But remember, I'm dreaming big here. I want two of those cards in my rig. I want SLI baby! nVidia's SLIzone recommends at least a 750W PSU for that. However, minimal recommendations are not always the best route to follow. What might be adequate today may be woefully inadequate tomorrow. So, with that in mind, I'm looking towards the future. And the future is big. The Thermaltake Toughpower W0133RU 1200W power supply up for review is about as big and as powerful as they come and may well last quite a ways into the future.
