You could power your rig with a quality 600W Power Supply. So a quality 850W is pretty overkill.

I only ask the model, because if it's some crazy off brand with a Continuous Supply Wattage of 300W and a PEAK Wattage of 850W then you could have issues with it.

It looks really good but I live in the UK.

I've been looking at this:

Looking at the cables it looks like it has everything I need now with PLENTY of room for expansion, in fact I may even spend a little extra for the 1000W, although I'm pretty sure I'll never use SLI. But I like the idea of having a part I almost certainly won't have to change.

Your current 850w psu isn't a strong one. It does a combined 56amps on the +12v rails. I have a rosewill capstone 750w which does 62amps on the 12v rail. The rosewill I have is just a rebranded super flower golden green psu.

The corsair psu you linked too should also be a quality psu. That does 71amp on the +12v rail which is right where an 850w psu should be.

Just to clarify, upgrading my PSU, without any other upgrades, will fix my throttling problem?

All indicators lead to that conclusion. It does seem it would alleviate a great deal of your issues. Like I posted earlier it made a huge diff in my GF computer.

Excellent, thank you so much, I'll update when I've got a new one installed as to whether it worked or not, for other people searching these threads for a similar problem. smile.gif

no, the throttling is from your mother board

Yeah I forgot about the motherboard. That is gonna be a problem with OC but may hold steady at stock.

Right then, well it's going to be a while before I can afford all this stuff, there doesn't seem to be any throttling at normal use with no overclocking, so I'll just have to stay as I am now until I get another motherboard, and when that happens I'll probably go intel.

While your mobo isn't great, upgrading to a quality psu should help you out. Right now you have low end vrms struggling with poor power input. If you have a decent psu, you should be able to run stock speeds, or maybe a mild overclock without throttling.

Either way, upgrading you psu is more important right now. It doesn't pay to upgrade your mobo and then starve that of power with your current psu.
