HardOCP has taken a look at which power supplies are the best choice for systems with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 and 470 configurations, you can check it out over here.
Today we are going to be sharing with you the first [H]ard|OCP authored "Buying Guide" that we have written in some time, and the first ever focusing on power supplies. Why might you ask? With the latest GPU refresh, it is highly likely that a lot of our readers are going to see some skyrocketing power consumption numbers in how much wattage their system might be consuming. With NVIDIA’s release of its Fermi GPU-based GTX 480 and GTX 470 video cards we have seen a real increase in the power requirements that enthusiasts are seeing, as witnessed in our recent Fermi evaluation. We have put together this guide to help steer our readers to what we feel is the right direction when it comes to powering their brand new Fermi system.
