I cannot find the 500Ws! If you got a link, please share!well... you decide it.
I only give the information that can be downloaded from SM site
honestly on your scenario where mostl idle... you rarely pull 200W or more .
I introduced 500W and 740W. let everyone decides to pick:...
500W and 740W platinum price is mostly identical... when buying the right time
740W is widely available mostly on Ebay, 500W is just poping out and disappear quick .
I bought $120 free shipping for 2X 500W platinum.
And actually. By my calculations though, having the ability to add a 2nd CPU will exceed 500W max capacity if I ever decide to do that.
On a side note, I chose my components carefully to be lower powered at idle (I hope, will assemble shortly).
But, I will be moving my 3x GTX Titans over to my 846 chassis sometime in the future, when I upgrade my desktop. I have 2x AMD R9 280x I will have in it for now with an external PSU for now.
