Mesh G92 Titan's PSU?

I am in the market for a new computer, and the G92 Titan seems rather good.

I have one reservation, however. The standard PSU is 550W, and (predictably) the next upgrade is a +£180 1000W PSU. 550W seems rather small for a fairly decent computer with two 8800GT 512mbs?

I suppose I should trust their judgement, any thoughts?

Have you thought of some one like Novatech?

I have a 550Wat PSU in my mesh which is just turned 2 years old. I have a 8800GTS 640mb which sucks more power, also I have 6 USB devices and never have a problem. The MESH PSUs branded makes whichs makes all the difference, they give a good steady current. Just my opinion, id go with their specs.

If you buy the thing and the psu proves inadequate, surely it's not fit for purpose and they'd have to give you a refund or put it right

Well, no doubt it'd scrape through. After a lot of web trawling it seems that the 'absolute minimum' is 550.

Donki, two 8800GTs need more power than one GTS. It's sort of a given.

Still, as you say keef. Though it's a bit irritating as they don't actually say what the PSU is, so I am unable to check the rails, etc.

Still, I suppose I should trust their judgement. Thank you. :]

you could always ask Mesh the question; they must know the specs of the psu. If they won't tell you, shop elsewhere.

If they do, get them to put it in writing / email, just in case.

...why didn't I think of that when I was on the phone to them? *headdesk*

I'll ask now.

8800gt x 2 use 340w when they are working flat out.

  JoshS 18:44 15 Jan 2008

Well, the question is -after the rails which I'll check tomorrow- will the remaining 210w be enough to keep everything else* ticking over nicely?

if you just have a normal amount of drives etc it should be ok.
