Corsair Builder Series 430CX 430W PSU

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So i showed you guys 2 other PSU's that you Completely denied and said they were rubbish which i took in and also took in the recommendation which is the title of this Thread. What do you think about this PSU its £40 and My computer specs are down below. Would it underpower anything? Thanks

If it's really doing 650Ws, then you're fine on the amount of power. Although I've never heard of Win-Power.

He's not talking about his existing PSU!

OP It will run your current system fine. If you are thinking of upgrading in the future I would get a higher PSU.

Did a near identical build a while back, different board thats all. You'd be pulling 250w max.

Where are you buying from btw?

Id rather Save up on Electricity Bills with a Lower Watts PSU. But would it still run My PC 100%?

Your PC will only draw the amount of power it needs, not your PSU's max. Power consumption on the same PC with a 1000w psu compared to a 400w psu would be the same as long as efficiency was equal.
