Low-end PSU for A10-6800K, GA-F2A85X-D3H, 650 Ti, 2400MHz DDR3

post #1 of 5

The GA-F2A85XM-D3H has an 8-pin CPU header (which is probably 4+4). The 650 Ti from eVGA apparently needs at least 20A on the 3.3V and 5V rails, according to this thread:

The 650 Ti uses a single six-pin connector. I have one SATA drive in the system, but at times it has had as many as four SATA HDDs and two DVD drives (one 4-pin Molex and one SATA).
The OCZ600SXS apparently is the cause of the BSODs and crashes the system has when it tries to run the 650 Ti (it's back to the 6800K as a GPU for now).

Yes, this is the same toothpaste TiM system that isn't eventually going to be used primarily by myself; no heavy overclocking, air only, mid-tower case which can barely fit the 650 Ti in it. I might purchase a Seasonic SS-1250XM when I build my own rig, but it would be underutilized in this system. I just need a PSU that is adequate enough to support the specs and cable headers of the components, maybe a little bit of Overdrive OC'ing, that won't fail within five years (never happened with any of my PSU's so far, even the crappy ones), and middling ripple. I guess I'll start with the highest rated PSU on JonnyGuru and work my way down the ranks of cost and quality until I get to the point of diminishing returns.

Country? Where can you buy from?

Rosewill Capstone 450W for $60 from newegg should do it.

Mid-east United States. Maybe 20A would be cutting it a bit close. Might go with the higher wattage rated version.

What are we even talking about again?

EVGA's page says 400W on the power supply (more specifically, 20A on +12V, which is 240W). Capstone 450W's got 37A on +12V and rated for continuous wattage at 50C ambient. Even the 650 Ti Boost doesn't peak at much more than 100W draw for the video card itself.

It's way more than overkill. It was recommended because there really isn't anything higher quality that's cheaper, and it does have six SATA power connectors natively.

I just want to avoid future blaming the PSU for the crashes under load.
EDIT: Bought the 450W Capstone Gold Rosewill from Newegg. $63.
