a little bit of help please?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
so here's the deal: I want to get this setup, and most psu calculators say about 410-450W. the problem with this is that the GPU I want needs at least 500W. what do I do?

and guys! I HAVE decided that I want THIS setup. I'm not switching over to i5 2500k... or anything like that. I JUST want an answer for my question.

it needs a 500 watt power supply overall, it doesn't draw 500 watts. just buy any 500+ watt PSU and it will be fine.

I'd get a good ~500W unit.

An excellent 400W unit will run that setup without an issue(Seasonic X400), a solid 450W will do the same(XFX Core 450), or an average 500W if want to cheap out even more

ps. get an IPS monitor
