which to up grade?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to up grade my psu in this system Leftovers

I'm still running the stock 250w psu which is probably cutting it pretty close with the extra fans and GPU. There are 2 options I"m thinkng of..

1st the cheap option..just replace with cheapy $30~ 400w generic psu

2nd upgrade my other build Tekitou, and use psu from here. The reason why I'm thinkning of upgrading this build too is because with this system running at max I notice some of the fan speeds drop just a little, but no BSOD yet. So just wondering if the 600w I have in it now is really doing a good job..its rated at 80+ bronze. I have my eye on a Scythe 700w 80+ silver modular psu on sale for about $80.

if your making it right now with 250, i would tell ya to get a name brand psu that is around 500watts.

id go corsair. unsure if its out of price range. but personally i dont like the idea of a cheapo psu being plugged into my nice hardware.

Ya haven't seen too much Corsair stuff around here, so it'll probably be a bit expensive. Think I'll go for the Scythe one, looks like a Japanese model and its rated silver so should be reliable.
