Recommended power supply? - Page 3

post #21 of 138
Thread Starter 
I can still afford this one if I get a cheap case. http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=596324
Is it fine?

And I will be modifying the case no matter how cheap it is, adding a big side extracting fan and front LCD temp etc.

That was Phaedrus who said that. The Hale82-M is actually made by Seasonic and is basically the same unit as the XFX units, Seasonic M12II x50w units, and Corsair TX V2. The Hale90 is an excellent SuperFlower made unit based on their Golden Green platform and is also used in the Rosewill Capstone, Rosewill Lightning, and Kingwin Lazer Gold.
Now for OP:
If I were to recommend you a budget PSU, I'd grab the 500w XFX Core Edition which did decently at JonnyGuru, the Rosewill Green Series that did great at HardwareSecrets, or the Rosewill Hive. If OP can swing a little more, the Rosewill Capstone or 650w XFX Core Edition are excellent PSUs.
My friend kibasnowpaw as the non modular XFX 650 watts PSU and he is very happy with it and he is really abusing his hardware so if it can last him more then a year i will give it my thumbs up even if i have never worked with it myself

It's not a bad PSU, but I'd see if you can swing the 650w or 550w FSP Raider (review) or, if you need cheaper, the Antec VP-550 (listed twice for some reason).

Anecdotes don't really mean a lot since a PSU can appear to be working fine and be pushing voltage out of spec and have a lot of ripple. It's better to look at reviews. The reviews for that unit are pretty solid since it's based on a good Seasonic platform.

Ok. I have selected a power supply but I need to select RAM.

What is the difference between all the 2400MHz RAM in this list?
http://pricespy.co.nz/category.php?l=s105199284#rparams=l=s105199311
A friend recommends the Patriot Viper Extreme Series Division 2.
I want to know what I gain from the vastly more expensive options, when they have the same stated specs.

Before you can even buy ram make sure you board can even handle it. Suggest for this is do the rig builder and show it in your sig. This way we can help you to the fullest.

All the parts as planned so far. Z77 Motherboard.

The VS is a poor PSU, don't spend money on that.
post #28 of 138
I would go with a TX 650. Rather inexpensive and from a great company. That PSU you picked probably wouldn't put out 500W any better than a car battery powering a 100w light bulb.

Ok. I have managed to find out a cheaper source for the graphics card. Amazon, even with shipping here to NZ.
So I can afford the TX650 PSU.

Now, for that RAM question I posted...

You don't need a TX 650, it's money poorly spent (since you're on a budget)... use PriceSpy and look for a XFX Core 550W, it'll be plenty and it's incomparably better than the VS.
