PSU Melted - what should I get?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
It's my media-pc and it's got a Phenom 9600 x4 @2.3GHz stock settings. GTX460 O/C @ 875MHz/1.038v and 1 WD 500GB HDD

I've got a 450W no-name PSU in there ATM that came with the case. Whilst running Kombustor I managed to melt the PSU

Would a good quality 450W be up to the job, or should or go for a 650w?

Go for the Rosewill Green 430w at newegg. Great PSU.

You can probably get away with a good 450 (the no name says 450w but its a lot less). If you can swing the cash to get a 650w then do that so you will have some headroom if you want to upgrade some parts.

Any 80 plus certified 500 watt will be plenty and leave room for upgrades.

This is going pretty cheap ATM?
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/245675

But it's only got 1x 6pin

This is also cheap, and has 2x 6 pin

retracted...I was looking at his sig rig. I'd still go quality 500 watt, such as corsair, antec, seasonic.

Well since the GTX 460 needs two PCI-E then get the XFX one.

I have 2x molex to 6pin adaptors so it's not really a problem, but I guess if it was meant for powering GFX cards that need 2x6pin, it would have 2x 6pin.

I just want the bare minimu I can scrape by with - if you have a look at my sig rig, you'll see why I dont have any money ATM

Just bought a load of bits for my main rig, put the old bits in my media pc, also bought a new Onkyo HDMI AV reciever, 3x 10M HDMi cables, rewired half the house. Got everything all sorted and now the PSU has died.

I'd love to put this in it -> http://www.ebuyer.com/product/257232 but I haven't got he money, and if a £24 PSU will do the job. That's what I need right now.

The cheapo one thats in there now did fine till I left kombustor running lol
