PSU for GTX 460 Cyclone OC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Greetings everyone,
1. I am about to purchase the card mentioned above. My PC consists of Athlon II X4 630 2.8 GHz (I know, probably 10-15% card's bottleneck with it) and DDR2 RAM 800 MHz.

Models of PSU I am considering:

OCZ Stealthxstream 2 500W/600W
Corsair CX600 600W
Or preferably any of your suggestions

My budget? Well, I guess it would be cool to mention it in USD... OCZ Stealthxstream 2 600W costs about 100, in my country it's a little cheaper, so I guess 90 USD? That's about top.

2. I know it is PSU's section, but just a little extra question, probably someone would know, no need to start a new thread - I got MSI K9N Neo V2 mobo and I want to buy Goodram 2GB DDR2 800 MHz Ram... At this moment I have 2GB 800 MHz of unknown producer. Is this going to operate just fine together? Goodram seems to be compatible... I apologize for potential silliness.

Thanks in advance.

You'd quite easily get away with a Corsair CX500. 500W would be plenty enough to power that system, plus it has 2 x 6+2-pin PCIe links, which not many sub-600W PSUs have these days.

As for your RAM, I'm not too sure. Sorry
