Advice me please

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody, Im a new member here.
btw, I have a PC desktop that've already become old school. but I want to upgrade it. I've already to make decision about what kind of hardware that I'l choose that is :
CPU : Intel Core i5 3570
Motherboard : AsRock H77 Pro-4
VGA : Msi Geforce N560GTX-Ti Hawk
Memory : 2 x CORSAIR Memory PC 2GB DDR3 PC-10600
HD : WD 500GB
Case : CBM Azza Toledo 301 (http://cbmcase.wordpress.com/tag/azza-toledo/) indonesia product

...but, I still not decide what kind of Power Supply that I use, because my old PC use SEASONIC Power Supply 430 watts. And some friends suggest to buy 550 watts Power Supply..
So, should I change my Power Supply to 550 watts or keep my old Power Supply ? and what is the best Power Supply with budgets below US$600.
Thanks smile.gif

$600 budget for a PSU lachen.gif

Just grab a Corsair TX750 v2 and be happy. It'll be able to power 2 top-teir GPUs and last forever.

No, just no.

The Seasonic 430w you have already is MORE than enough for your planned system.

For the price of a 560Ti, I would honestly reconsider and look at HD7850's and HD7870's. You'll get nearly double the performance for roughly the same cost.

Motherboard, shoot for a z77 board. ASRock Extreme4 or Biostar TZ77XE3 would be the two budget choices.

CPU, get the 3570k, not the regular 3570. Unlocked multiplier on the K model means you can overclock it, the non K model cannot overclock at all (or very far at least).

He offered a budget, I offered a PSU that would last him a long time, have good upgradeability options, and still come in at around $120. Sue me.

I thought the same at first, but when I looked up 7850 reviews, it put the 560TI squarely between the 7850 and 7870... After reading this, I looked again. Stupid low-res reviews. Still, not 2x performance for a 7850. New drivers wouldn't push it that far either. Not at 1080p anyway. @OP: Yes, look into a 7850 at the same price.

I just figured he was intentionally not going to the OCing option between non-k, H77, and no after market cooler. Not like he'd need to OC with just a 560ti or 7850 anyway.
