What PSU?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So. The cheap-ass power supply that I was riding on is giving up, so I'm looking for a new power supply, looking to spend £70 max (this question is only for UK users, because you can't just change the newegg prices from $ to £ as it's different for some reason).

That's mah rig fo' ya'll below:

FX6300 (no OC due to ***** cooling)
GTX 660 (non-ti, no OC, MSI Twin Frozr version auww yiss)
6GB crap ram (looking to buy a whole new set of 8gb kingston low profile, those cool lookin' blue ones biggrin.gif)
M5a97r2.0 motherboard (not much to say here, got everything I need)
2 HDD's and an SSD (looking to change that to one SSD and one HDD)
one CD/DVD drive.

As said above, £70 max, I'd like a 600/620w psu, I know I might not need that much, but just in case I upgrade, ya kno' how it is biggrin.gif
System will be used for gaming (from minecraft to battlefield) as well as 3D rendering as well as the usual stuff like browsing (just so you know that it will be put to pretty intensive use).

Current options are:
- Corsair CX600 - new 2012/2013 version (£60, has good reviews but I'm hearing things like 'the 12V rail is being run at 10V' which I'm not sure about, but I think it means you're not getting as much voltage to be used on your cpu and gpu?)
- Seasonic M12II-620 ( £70. Very good company apparently, but dayumm that shizz is expeeeeeeensiveee)

Now, I've got money to use elsewhere, but I'm not gonna skimp on the power supply. You can either suggest one of the two above (if you've owned any of the two for a fairly long time) or say something else. Please, just keep it 600w (bare minimum I'd go for is 550w, but because of degradation over time I wouldn't really biggrin.gif)

LETS'A'GO!

500 watts can cover your system fine unless you add a second video card

Forget about the Corsair CX600 its not worth buying

If you dont mind non modular how about a Fractal Design Tesla R2 500W?

Or a BeQuiet! Straight Power E9 500W?

or you can find more on the list

What do you say about this? Apparently it's a re-branded Seasonic biggrin.gif and no, I don't mind non-modular.
