What is your CPU?

50 on a PSU is not going to be fun, it powers everything, you don't want to cheap out on it. I like the XFX mentioned above, along with the Corsair. I like SeaSonic brand as well. NZXT.

You will have to add money to your budget, are you set on the ASRock Extreme4 because it really does nothing since your CPU doesn't Overclock

To the best of my knowledge...., this only has x2 PCI-E connectors so it won't work. --> http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0068ODTZA/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=04PMP54DVNHT96Q1MJ7D&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=358549767&pf_rd_i=468294

This has x2 PCI-E connectors and won't work either --> http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004O0P9TO/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i5?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=04PMP54DVNHT96Q1MJ7D&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=358549767&pf_rd_i=468294

This ones fine --> http://www.amazon.co.uk/Be-Quiet-L8-630W-Pure-Power/dp/B005JRGVBQ/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1365283565&sr=8-4&keywords=be+quiet#productDetails

This is what I already recommend for him --> http://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-P1-750S-NLB9-PRO750W-Edition-Supply/dp/B0045L4BJ6/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1365283624&sr=8-7&keywords=xfx+power+supply (It should have a manufacturers mail in rebate, bringing down the total cost.)

This one says only x1 PCI-E in the description (which I find hard to believe), but if that's true then it won't work either. Also it says " Max Load: 36A 35A 21A 0.3A 2.0A" which implies multiple voltage rails, then it says "single voltage rail" in the description. That's impossible. They are lieing about something.


Double check me, but I think he need x4 6 pin PCI-E connectors for that card? Am I wrong, or is everyone overlooking this?
That's going to be the hardest part. Cheap power supplies don't come with enough PCI-E connectors.
