Mid-Budget gaming build, which PSU will do.... - Page 2

Cooler Master GX650 is no good. Avoid Cooler Master unless maybe it says "Silent Pro." And then it may not be the best option for the price.

Actually, there are two models:
RS-650-ACAA-E3 -- worse
RS-650-ACAA-D3 -- still not good

Hmm, yeah I know it's not the best PSU, but can it really not run that machine? Otherwise I will have to buy another PSU which just seems like a waste of money for me... If it needs to be done, yeah sure, but I really don't want to spend more money as I am on a tight budget already...

Well, it will power that setup (even if outfitted with the HD 6850s). One review has it going out of spec at about 500W or so, but it won't be running at that kind of load. Performance is no good, it's louder than it ought to be, and the Su'scon capacitors are Su'spect (as they like to say).

Ideally you would just keep it in reserve as a backup unit, but if you're tight on a budget, it will do. There are much worse out there.

I'd just suggest you not think of it as "oh I have 650W unit so there is plenty of overhead."
