Help with deciding power supllies

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I am building a gaming rig and am trying to decide between a power supply that can run a GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 and an i5 3470, to keep it short I have been looking at this and this on newegg

EDIT: I am not going to be using two cards, at least not for a while.

I highly suggest against the Coolermaster PSU you are looking at, its a poor unit: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eXtreme-Power-Plus-600-W-Power-Supply-Review/1034/9

I am unfamiliar with the Rosewill one you linked. Rosewill does have some decent units, but I cannot speak for that particular one as I cannot seem to find a review for it, just the 650w version which may be a different build altogether. Perhaps one of the PSU Gurus here could shed some light on this unit biggrin.gif.

With that being said, what is your budget? Do you have plans on ever using multiple GPU's?

Indeed, both are trashy units, at that budget you could get a Seasonic G 360 or a Rosewill Capstone 450, which are more than plenty for that setup (~200W at full load).
