post #11 of 37
Thread Starter 
well the alpine power supply lasted 16 hours then blew up
i took it back to store i bought it from and got my money back
next week when i get paid i will get a decent power supply
the best power supply my local pc store has is an ocz 600 or 650w power supply not sure what model
if that isnt good enought i will have to buy online but ive only got a budget off £70

OCZ is better than those Apine or EZCool PSU. OCZ don't make the best PSU but far more better than Apine or EZCool.

If it's like a StealthXStream II, ModXStream Pro...okay, not amazing. If it's ZS (maybe ZT), that's better.

If you're just powering like Q9550 and GTX 460, you can just get an XFX Core Edition 450W for like £42 (also available on scan and elsewhere if this runs out):

If you can spare the money, a Thermaltake Toughpower XT 575W is really good and only £56:

Get a Corsair CX430v2. $40. If you can't afford that then you should probably sell the GTX460; assuming it still works after that Alpine went up.
