what you powering? For a single gpu air cooled rig an ax650 will be more than enough. They run around 150 USD

Your question is rather non-specific, but you should read this and use this calculator to determine how much power your system needs. Then if you still have questions, ask away!

Well not looking for so much power suggestions I suppose but more of what is a good brand that doesn't cost too much?

For example Corsair PSUs cost wayyyyyy too much!

Actually managed to find a NZXT 850w for $105 and it's modular! Micro center ftw! it has 5 star rating with around 20 votes.

So I think I'll go with that! tyvm biggrin.gif

Antec, some Rosewill - but you have to be careful, as some units are garbage but others are fantastic. There are too many to list...

Really just go through that first thread whenever you are about to buy a PSU and check out the prices of the PSUs in that range. We can't give you all the answers for you, as it varies a lot on the time that you buy. You might get a good deal on a PSU that you would otherwise ignore because it is an "expensive" brand. There are sales ALL the time. Blindly going to any single brand without question is never a good idea. Also, many brands have multiple lines of PSUs, and some are better than others. Some brands have some of the best PSUs in one line, and completely garbage PSUs in another, which is another reason blindly going into any brand is not a good idea.

There are various of brands that sell quality units, but they can also sell rather poor units as well. If you want to get any proper recommendation, you would want to provide information on the specification on your system, your budget, as well as where are you buying from (prices may varied from where you buy that it may be a great deal in one country but very overpriced in another).

Okay well here's my overall build so far, no GPU. Most likely a AMD 7900 or nVidia 600 series!

Chassis 600T $177: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0355587

CPU i5 3570k $190 : http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0388577

Mobo ASRock X6 $180: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0395374

RAM Vengeance 8gb $60: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0377025

PSU NZXT 850w $105: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0381673

SSD Samsung 830 $115: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0385837

Cooler H100 $120: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0391501

I might consider getting the cooler online as well as I don't need to OC really until I get my GPU anyway!


Total: $948.96 (/w tax $971.76)
(/w -credit $940.57)

Math may not be 100% but more or less. smile.gif
