I never really build a pc before but I did a lot of reading from black friday and chrismas. Please ignore the 8 ram. I have 2 ram I have bought. But I'll be upgrading just not soon. And I will be placing another graphics card sli just not soon there 800$ :O

While you read this. I want everyone to know I am not really great understanding computer terms. For example power supply gold uses 20%. Which I have to google everything to just understand. I also have mild aspergers so those terms. I just can't understand.

I know not a question sometimes I like to explain first. So I have a apc 1500 watts 865w I read somewhere about can't go over 865w on my apc. Also I have apc because sometimes, where I live the power flickers on one part of a outlit. So the apc saves my pc.

I've building this pc just for looks I love spending money -_- no kidding. I'm building my new computer just for vr.

Also read about there some power supplys (even good ones) can turn up dead or ruin your system and the company won't do anything about that.

Any 650w+ PSU would work, you just want overhead on your PSU.

I think what you were reading was efficiency ratings, which is how much energy is lost at different loads.

Since you PC will only draw ~600w at 100% load on everything, your APC is fine. A PSU will only output as much as the computer requires.

Just thinking top of my mind so any 650w and lets use 750w psu as long it doesn't go over apc 1500v which has 865watts.

Still watching videos about the gold, bronze, platinum and titanium. So the efficiency ratings are just how good a psu is or how much power it is using

The efficiency ratings are how good it is, higher is better in the long run.

I would recommend a minimum of 80+ gold

No. The efficiency ratings are just efficiency (How much power is wasted as heat in the process), not how good it is.

Did you account for SLI when recommending a 650w unit? Because SLI GTX 1080ti build such as OP's PC would draw over 600w just on a gaming load. A 650w unit would not be enough.

OP, are you intending on overclocking your GPU/s?

Okay I worded that poorly.

Efficiency ratings don’t necessary mean it’ll be better, but the average 80+ plat PSU is better than the average 80+ bronze.

Having a high efficiency rating means you’ll save money in the long run, especially if you play to use the PC a lot.

Oh, and SLI GTX 1080ti would draw ~850w at 100% load on everything.

Oh, and SLI GTX 1080ti would draw ~850w at 100% load on everything.

If it was overclocked, maybe.

In intense gaming loads gaming loads, a single GTX 1080ti system needs ~350w. For dual 1080tis, the system would need ~610w.

I'd like to know where it's found SLI 1080ti consumes 850w at full load.

No rexper, I just read that another gtx sli is better for vr. As left part on the ocules rift is using one gtx and the right as well. And possibly frame rates but that would be like maybe 2 or 3 years?

That's why i didn't buy the 650w unit. First my plane was going to buy a 1500w power supply. Then I read about a lot of people mention. If I just have a 600w pc. and my apc that's 1500v 865w. That would damage my apc. and the 1500w would hurt the electric bill.

If I was going to go sli. The watt would of been around 800 to 900w.
