Need suggestions/advice on getting new ram , new psu & a SSD

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So hey everybody , I planning to do these three upgrades to my computer , I want two sticks of 8gb ddr3 gaming running at 1600mhz ram I know 1333mhz vs 1600mhz is like a 5fps difference in games & I also know that gaming ram is a marketing gimmick & they're expensive compared to regular rams but since ddr3 ram's price has internationally dropped so there isn't much of a difference between their prices , I know G.skill ( Ripjaws) , Corsair ( Vengance )& Kingston ( HyperX ) are the three main brands that make gaming ram but since G.skill is expensive that only leaves Corsair & Kingston & there isn't much price difference between the two which one should I get ? my budget is 110$ for the ram

I want a 250gb SATA III SSD now idk which brand SSD's should I get Corsair , Kingston, Samsung , Intel & etc my budget for the SSD is 100$

I want to replace my current psu because the brand is unknown & doesn't seems to exist anymore it states its a Nspiregear 600watts psu with 36 amps on the +12 volt rails but it should have 50amps I want to replace it with a reliable & trusted brand I was suggested XFX psu before but unfortunately there is no distributor of XFX , Seasonic , Evga or Antec psu's here & buying online is not an option for me I mean I could probably find a used psu of these brands but I don't want to repeat the same mistake I made twice by buying used/second hand psus their fans were making noise had to lubricate one & had to replace the other's fan

My only options for the psu are Corsair , Cooler master , Xigmatek , Thermaltake , I've read Corsair , Cooler master & Xigamatech mid-range psu's are crap & their only high end ones are good , I want a psu with at least 550watts , should be semi modular ( for cable management) , 87+bronze efficiency at least , 2x 6+2 pci-e connectors & 6 sata ports , I was able to find Thermaltake Smart SE 630W psu it seems good to me & with in my price range to for the psu so my question is will it be good for my build? & what tier is it?



My current specs are

I'm here to help you select a power supply.

Since buying online isn't an option for you, helping you choose a power supply is a little more difficult because prices vary from store to store and I would strongly prefer to know what store(s) you could buy from and what their entire PSU selection is so that I don't cause you to buy a PSU that has an equal or better alternative for a lower price.

That Thermaltake PSU you found is generally not recommended.

Unfortunately, you are extremely limited in your options. Corsair's new RMx series is quite good and even better than EVGA's G2/P2/T2 series. So, try to find an RMx PSU.

In Cooler Master's lineup, look for the V550, or any of their "V" PSUs.

Avoid Xigmatek.

Thermaltake: try to look for a Toughpower unit.

Sorry for the late reply I was able to find a used psu of Seasonic in my country & I am getting it real cheap to like 30$ (SeaSonic SS-500ET Bronze 500W) my question is it any good ? & is it alright for my build? only down factors of this psu is it looks plain , got only one 8pin pci-e but I think I can get an adapter 6 pin to 8 pin & isn't modular but that shouldn't be much of a problem since the psu in my case is bottom mounted & my case got holes for cable management + I'll use zip ties & I think I'll get this until I can get my hands on a full modular XFX psu that won't be anytime soon though btw one more thing why do this psu has a 8pin EPS as well 4+4pin? I know they're the same thing & 4+4 can be used as either 4 pin or 8 pin

Late replies are ok. :) To me, they're just as good as a reply that was posted 1 second later.

 

Anyway, I don't know anything about that PSU. I trust it should be good enough for your build and it definitely has enough power.

 

I think it has two CPU connectors for motherboards that have two CPUs.

But isn't Seasonic the best psu maker? since it makes XFX psus too & some of Antec as well some of Evga's psus I did some research & this Seasonic psu can even handle GTX 970 the reason its plain is cause its an OEM psu I hope I am able to find cable sleeve extensions to make the cable management tidy
