Budget power supplys

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Would a 6770, stock Pentium dual-core, 1 hard drive and a couple of GB of RAM be okay with this PSU:

Im aware its not a very good PSU but my mate is on a really really low budget. Looks okay to me, he will not be OCing at all either.

Thanks.

DO NOT go for cheap power supplys. Go for a trusted brand with at least 80+ certification. non-known-brand psus are prone to being unreliable, loud and low quality. A better made 450 watt psu would do a better job.

I would go for something like this:

Yeah go the extra 10...That PSU's 12V looks really weak for a 650W power supply. I wouldn't go for that Cooler Master either, those aren't that good (If it's the old one, better to not take the chance) This is a good PSU http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-042-BQ&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=1083 I hope that's not too high of a price for him. That PSU is kinda overkill though so you could always get this one too http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-173-AN&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=1088
