post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Doing a build right now, going to be an Athlon II x4, light gaming card (5770, 450, TBD), 1 hard drive, 1 SSD..really light build..can someone recommend a quality PSU at the right price point (under $60 hopefully)?

I'm not sure how Newegg prices work but if it's a $43.99 WTIHOUT the $23.99 MIR, it could be a pretty good deal. I looked at some customer feedback and it seemed to be a hit or a miss. I think that'll be an issue like any other power supply. Overall, Corsair have a pretty good reputation in that department so it should be okay.

Stay away from the Corsair 430CX. Phaedrus explained its quality-fail a week or so ago, check it out in the PSU channel.

Here's one in the price range that's decent and more powerful:

Stay away from the new CX series (CX430, CX500 and CX600), Corsair began to overrate their PSU recently, i rather not get any of these, unless i can get it dirt cheap, plus i know what i am doing(how much power my setup draw, and how much the PSU can ACTUALLY deliver).

5770 or GTS450 does not draw that much power even OC. Oced x4 easily take 220w depended on voltage. Based on the list, if OC cpu and GPU, a solid psu can do 35a/420w on 12v should be fine. May take a look at Antec NEO 520w or extra $10 for a Corsair 550vx so a bit more headroom.
