PSU for 6850

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to get a power supply tomorrow to power up my build, with a HD 6850 and a i3-2100.

I'm not sure if this Cooler Master 460W will run it: http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Elite-Supply-RS460-PSAR-J3-US/dp/B002G1YPHK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1324694327&sr=8-2 ($35 USD) If it's not good enough, is there any PSU I can get that's under <$40?

That power supply is enough for your system.

I got a 620W, think I'm overkill.

400w+ should be enough for that system

I'm running a Cooler Master GX 750W on a single. Every once in awhile I will put my second 6850 in for some fun. thumb.gif

Oh, that PSU will be fine. smile.gif

Is the GX 450 any good? It's 80+ bronze certified but I can't find anything on it's +12v rail. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1102739&csid=ITD&body=MAIN

It's $30 on Tigerdirect ($40 on newegg) Otherwise, I'll go with the XFX one

It is an okay unit, not the best one.

The GX450 is fine. You aren't running any power hungry system so it won't blow up on you. The XFX is better unit for sure, but in reality all you need is a 300-350w psu.
