Need a new PSU, advice wanted.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I need a new PSU, right now im planning on running an asus p5k-e/wifi-ap, e8400, and plan on buying a 8600GTS to run lower end games like wc3 FT and maybe sc2 (if it ever comes out).

I would like to spend around $50-70 on a dependable, preferably quiet PCU.. is this going to be possible?

Please help me out and send as much advice my way as possible.

Thanks

Your rig won't need that much power. Try the Corsair 450vx or Corsair 550vx with some headroom for future upgrade.
