Corsair VS 450w enough?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im goin to the shop tomorrow to buy some TIM, I think its a good idea to change my 2 year old psu, I fear it will die soon from the heavy load.
Its a 600watt but not one of those top brands so im guessing it provides 400watts max because of the capacitor aging.

I havent had time to update my sig rig yet but these are all the parts:

FX6100 at 4Ghz
HD6850
2x4GB DDR3 1866
3x500GB HDD
1 DVD writer
2x120mm casefans
2x140mm fans on hyper212 heatsink


These are the 500w psu in stock at the store, with the corsair 450w being the cheapest for my budget

If you're trying to upgrade, Corsair VS is not the way to go. Your old power supply may still be fine. Save money for when you can afford something not as poor as VS.
