Newbie Needs Help Choosing Proper PSU

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I am a novice when it comes to pc's. I currently have an extreme gear 600W ATX PSU that came with my build from cyberpowerpc. I have been reading that these are garbage and I am afraid that it will fry all of my components. Specs are as follows (sorry if they are not correctly written):

CPU: AMD FX 4300 Quadcore processor
OS: Windows 8 64 bit
Mobo: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
PSU: Xtreme Gear ATX 600W
RAM: 4GB
CPU Speed: 3.8ghz
Video Card: GeForce GT 630
Hard Drive: 500Gb

I just want to find a good PSU under $100 that I can rely on and will have all the connections I need.

Thanks so much for any input!biggrin.gif

Rosewill Hive and XFX Core Edition are good cheap options

Or a Rosewill Capstone if you can go that high

And you dont need more then 550 watts max i think even a 450 watts PSU could power your system

The Rosewill Hive 650 watts is the same price as the 550 so you get a good deal there

Welcome to OCN by the way
