Greetings to all, this topic has been talked and discussed millions of times before, I did my homework and know a bit or two about PSU calculations and system building. But still curious about your valuable opinions, I know how to use PSU Calculator websites etc, and have enough knowledge about to dig into the manufacturer websites and check the technical data for the components I intend to use, and make an approx. guess about the wattage I need for my build. But I am going to ask you anyway, because I love to learn and I am sure there are lots of people out there with wonderful information and background. So here is my question;
this is my build : https://pcpartpicker.com/list/2bWJwh
I am confused about the PSU selection, whether I should go for 750W or 850W? I am thinking about buying be quiet! dark power pro 11 750W or 850W. It is obvious that both 750 or 850W shoud be enough for my rig. But which one would be more efficient and produce less heat? I am leaning towards to the 850W but I just have basic information about workload and efficiency of PSU, I want to take advantage of your wisdom about this subject. Which one would you prefer and why? Or maybe you can tell me to forget both and buy a 650W PSU, one psu calculator website gives me about 600w of need, while the other one tells me some different story... I am confused and curiosity is building inside me badly...I am open to all ideas, but just tell me "why" please, why your opinion will be valid over the other wattage psu etc, I dont need a convincing, just want to learn the magic behind that watt and efficiency stuff... I wanted to ask about this topic here because I am not waiting for just "this one is good this one is not" type of answers, I am after "this one is better to that one because of "these factors" " type of answers..I want to learn and understand at the same time. Than you for your valuable time and have a wonderful day :) and sorry for any errors since English is not my main language.
