I'm replacing a whining PSU (when used in conjunction with a GTX 285) and I'm hesitating between the SG-650 and SG-850. I have no plan to run a SLI setup, but I'd like some headroom for future upgrades (look at my sig) while not overloading my UPS (APC DLA1500).

My guess is that a SG-650 would do just fine, but I always like to hear comments from the pros here! :D

If you never overclock SG650 will last you a long time &full load you won't even come close to reaching 100% output

I'll probably try overclocking at around 3GHz, but nothing to crazy. I've read that the SG-650 can get somewhat loud when the load gets to high, so thats why I was considering the SG-850.

The SG-650 would be enough, but if you plan on upgrading in the future and/or going to a dual video card setup in the future, the 850W model would be ideal.
