Power Supply requirements

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well I am half way finished with my build, I need a Power supply, and so far I am going to get a Roswell Stallion Series 500W, since my budget isnt high enough for name branded power supplies like corsair.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182076 <= my choice, is the rails good? 2 12v rails.

My budget is around 30-50$

At your budget yes it is a bit difficult to find things but 400w is more than enough for your computer at the moment.

After looking at the Hardocp $50 PSU round up I decided that those two psu's are the best for the budget you are looking for. So give that a look and tell me what ya think

Don't get a crappy power supply. Sacrifice performance in other areas if you can't afford a good power supply, it'll pay off in the long (and possibly short) run. Unless you're not building a gaming rig, in which case I'd say get a higher-quality, lower-wattage unit.

Do not sacrifice on your PSU. It is like the heart of the PC, if it stops everything does. So you should invest in a good one.

Personally I would go for this it is only $75 but it was $100, also it would be $54.99 after M.I.R.. Here is a review about it.

I'm not exactly an expert but that's not a good review. You can't review a PSU without opening it up and seeing what kind of components were used and finding out which OEM was used. All they checked was voltage regulation and the Vdroop on the 12v rail was the worst out of the 3 they compared it with. Arguably the best Coolmax line would be the Greenpower and it didn't impress JonnyGuru all that much in his review. Based on that meager review, that is not a power supply you should be recommending right after you say, "you should invest in a good one." If you can find a more thorough review that gives it the thumbs up, then yes, that would be a good choice for the price.
