Should I upgrade my Power?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I plan on gaming alot, and pushing my current GPU and CPU (maybe overclocking both by 10%)

I have a LOGISYS Computer PS480D-BK 480W ATX12V Power Supply (Rated at 330 actual watts)

Should I upgrade to this? XIGMATEK ACXTNRP-PC402 400W ATX12V Ver.2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

I figure that the 80+B would give me better power at loads and the A-PFC would give me more peace of mind.

this would be a much better choice for an upgrade, which i think you desperately need.
Logisys is among the brands that have crap PSUs

edit: once phaedrus checks this thread he may have a better recommendation.

That is quite unfortunate considering it could potentially be alot more to replace parts that a poor quality psu can fry. Its really bad to skimp on your PSU. However I'll wait for phaedrus to comment, since he is our resident PSU guru

Well, you should replace that Logisys crap as soon as possible no matter what.
I can't find any decent reviews of that Xigmatek unit, so I would skip it since it's made by HEC. My suggestion to you for $40 shipped is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371033
