Help me choose a PSU

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I think its about time to get a new PSU. I have $80 to spend including taxes, so could someone suggest some options?
I need to power: FX-8120, HD 6870 and all the basics (in the sig).

Most importantly I need it to have the EPS connection and 2 6 pins for the 6870.

Thanks biggrin.gif

Instore purchase only but theres a ton at toronto's stores. It ended up 68,88 after MIR, It's semi-modular, it have all the cable you need, it have awsome RMA service if needed.

Thanks, there is a store right by me actually. I think I might need more than 550 though, thats what I have now. I just tried hooking up an extra 3 fans, and it looked like the leds on those fans were blinking, voltages read 11.56 vs the 11.98 without em. Maybe I should shoot for 650?

Anyone else?
