Lol, sure beats trying to run an overclocked C2Q and a 9800GX2 off of a "550w" RAIDMAX POS. That poor system.

I also am running a 700W cooler master silent pro in my HTPC to run a 650ti 1GB and a 2500k XD

Went with EVGA G2 850 after recieving the 3rd Corsair AX860 unit with coilwhin. I'm very satisfied with this PSU.

10 years warranty is quite nice.

Everyone that does not already know please read this
Corsair RMi and RMx series explained

As for all online power calculators forget it they are all wrong and they all so suck so dont bother its misinformation and a waste of time.
650 watts is way overkill for a system with a single video card in it.

For more reading take a look here.

EVGA Supernova 650 G2 > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438054&cm_re=evga_650_g2-_-17-438-054-_-Product
XFX XTR 650 > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207031&cm_re=XTR-_-17-207-031-_-Product

would be my first two choices

As for 650 being overkill it's only slight. 550 is a good all rounder but 650 will pretty much support any new cpu + single gpu setup you can throw at it.


After a lot of ponderation, I have decided to follow another route, that will suit my needs better:

Since l need to get a more performant pc, design oriented, and yes, a design gpu is much more expensive and it would need more RAM as well, i will make just a temporary fix, until I get the tim€ for the design pc. But I need a computer to work in the meanwhile, and to replace my dying psu asap.

However, right now, since I won't be overclocking it or having dual cards either, I am going to a compact build. What I have taught initially to be one of the few items that wouldn't be needing upgrade (Corsair 300R) will actualy be set apart, so I can work in a micro atx form factor case.

I will be building a new case from some sraps I have laying around, and I won't be upgrading the MOBO as for now. So, I will use my old h81m-a redface.gif ...

These will be the Specs for the new build:

Mobo: Asus H81M-A check
CPU: i7 (will upgrade)
RAM: 16 GB Corsair Dominator DDR3
HD: WD Black 2 TB
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB check
GPU: NONE check biggrin.gif
Case: custom
PSU: ( ?? ) NEED HELP

As you may have seen, I have checked NONE for GPU. What does it mean? I won't be using ANY GPU tongue.gif . Just the onboard that the i7 will come with. Well..

So, in this line of taught i was wondering what you think about this psu:

SILVERSTONE SFX ST45SF 450W

I need advice on PSU that can FIT THIS MICRO-ORIENTEDED-RIG that will be put up in the following week or so.

Leave you with a pic of some materials i'll be using to make the case.



sorry, cell phone pic

Today, will be mesuring, cutting, cutting, drilling biggrin.gif

Look forward for your opinions/ sugestions!! thumb.gif
