I'm about to put an LGA775 rig together modded to use LGA771 Xeon X5460 or X5470 quad core CPU. I have a thermaltake 750w and an Antec earthwatts 650w. The Antec is supposed to have three 12v rails but I don't know about the Thermaltake.
I'll be putting two systems together with one going to my friend. I will be going for extreme overclocking with virtually no gaming on the one I keep and the friends wife will at some point probably be gaming on the one I give him.
Which power supply would serve which rig the best. I'm not sure which PSU is better or more reliable or which system will need the best of two PSUs considering that one will be extreme OC and the other may be hardcore gaming.
I need reliable info and opinions on this choice, I don't want either rig to experience power problems.
