Question with a new Build PSU

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i used Power Calc and found i need around 500 Watts.

AMD BE 955

GTX 275

8GB DDR2

1-2 Hard Drives Maybe 3 Fans at most.

I dont have a great PSU laying around a couple okay models around 450 i believe and an Old Alienware OEM 700 Watt.

I do also have one of these Available

Would that be okay to just use with my GPU.

I was also looking at this as a possible Purchase.

Ends up Being around 37.99 After MIR with Code.

I know the power supply isnt the best but would it be acceptable , i dont really have more than the 60 to spend.

Food For Thought: Ive used the PSU bay power supply on my old rig with my 6870 and it never Gave me any real issues.

I think you should go with the Corsair model. It is pretty decent PSU.

That system will be fine with a 500W Power Supply, the calculator is wrong.
