Is this a good power supply deal? - Page 2

post #11 of 44
Thread Starter 
No chance, its a very popular AMD card, that alone is going to get it attention. Let alone the fact it has 19 hours left, thats a very long time in bidding terms, and even if I was to bid on it someone would notice and would bid higher.

Still better off trying. 35 bucks for a decent video card isn't going to be very likely. You'd be better off with a 50 dollar budget.

What exactly are you wanting to do with this 35 dollar video card?

What kind (make/model number) of PSU is the 450 Watt? If it's a generic one, either it wont power on at all or it could overload and take the card and possibly anything else with it when it goes with a 5850 attached.
In short spend the extra money on a quality PSU else you could lose a lot more than what your budget allows costing you more overall.

This simply isn't true. Antec Eco Neo 620w constantly goes on sale for $30-35 new. XFX 550-750 core models consistently go for $25-$50, There are plenty of good quality PSUs that can be had for under $55 brand new.

On topic though I do agree that corsair is very good, used to buy there ram back in the days of old ddr2. Alrighty then I guess I will my money up. I do have one last question for you all. What is the best graphics card that I can get on ebay right now that will run on a 450 watt psu (I currently have it, I know its tried and tested) but is under $35?

 

Please avoid Corsair's PSUs. They are all overpriced. Almost every other company is allowing their PSUs to be their loss leaders, BUT NOT CORSAIR. So, just stay away from Corsair unless you like wasting money.

 

What is the brand and the exact model of your 450W PSU?

Some of these cheap psu's are not able to maintain the rated power output, or even half of that. I had been naive in the past and had two of these off-brand units go out on me with less then half the rated load. Luckily, nothing else died and lesson learned. Went with a name-brand unit since then, especially since I had upgraded to a good healthy custom setup.


Since you have a bunch of pc parts, how about chaining two oem units together? Spend on a good unit (look used for a lesser price) once you start putting in stuff with considerable value. I used to hack these pc's when I was a young kid back in the 90s. Pop used to bring old, tired out pc inventory from his job at a hotel when they were clearing out old stuff for new gear (ancient machines tbh, but fun cutting them up biggrin.gif).

indeed according to the specs this "750" watt is at best a continuous ~450 watt psu. dual +12v rails at 24A each. only one 6 pin and one 8 pin pci-e connector.
