550w good enough for 2600k & GTX 275?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Im looking to do a new build with a 2600k, gtx 275, 8gb ram. I checked with the psucalc and it suggests 525W total for the 2600k, gtx 275, 2 ram sticks, 2 fans, 1 HDD. Is 550w gonna be enough for all this and if so which psu should I get? The psu calc recommends a couple which I picked either:




Which of these should I pick or neither? Ill be folding on this system 24/7 and both gpu and cpu will be overvolted to the max wink.gif

It would be more than enough, if you want a high quality PSU the rosewill capstones are an excellent choice

I kinda need it to be as cheap as possible.

The HCG is slightly better than the ZS, and both are a lot better than the CX.
