Recommended power supply? - Page 4

post #31 of 138
Thread Starter 
Ok. Now I got a few opinions here... I used two PSU calculators recommended by people on this forum and one said 425W and the other said 385W. Personally I think 550W is fine but I have only ever had laptops...

Memory recommendations people?

It doesn't matter, get something cheap... there's better places to put your money... the only reason you'd buy faster memory is if you're a bencher, which is not the case obviously (otherwise we wouldn't be having this discussion).

Ok. And noob question: My monitor has VGA, DVI, and HDMI input and goes up to 1920x1080. What output on the card would I use ideally? Displayport to hdmi? DP to DVI, DVI to VGA, DVI to DVI, HDMI to HDMI..... Right now with my laptop, I have been using the VGA output and it looks perfect to me. Do I gain anything by using the digital outputs when i'm only using 1080p 60Hz? I dont care about eyefinity and 3D.

And stock cooler that comes with the Intel i5 is fine if i'm not overclocking I assume (why else would they package it). However... There is no reason to get the "K" unlocked version if i'm not overclocking am i right? I will need a bigger cooler if I overclock i guess.
Pricespy has soooooo many coolers for 1155. What would you guys recommend (that will fit in MicroATX case ofc)?

if you do some thorough searches... you will find some good quality antec/Corsair PSU's for $40-60
and if you can afford it.. always buy one level more than you need.

What i do is i take CPU's and GPU's tdp's and multiply that by two. 650W should give you ample headroom for upgrades and a silent PSU. You would do fine with 500W if you're tight on budget, however.

Just use straight DVI to DVI. Keep it simple.
If you're still hurting on cash, I believe the 212 should fit in a mATX case. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099)

As for ram, get the Samsung 30nm's. Great memory at probably one of the lowest prices for 2x4gb and producing really good quality stuff. Easy OCer if you ever wanna get into that thumb.gif

Can you please link me to where I can get such power supplies? Only thing in that price range is sh**ty AYWUN power supplies.
So far, I have settled with XFX ProSeries Core 550W for $113 NZ

Have never tried a XFX PSU myself but i have a friend who has one and he give its it his thumbs up
I think its a better idea to buy a good PSU and then spend less on something else dont buy P.O.S. PSU´s

It's a shame not to get the K version, Sandy/Ivy overklocks so easily and the price difference is minimal... also, you don't need a hardcore cooler to get it to ~4.5Ghz wink.gif

The stock cooler blows its fine to start with just dont try to overclock with the stock cooler for that you will need a better cooler
