The brands you want to look for are seasonic, antec, and some corsair units

Something like this

Seasonic X750


Or if money is no object heh

All I can say is don't get theTX650, that's what I have and I find it gives really inconsistent voltage, especially to the 12v+ rails. Look into Antec PSUs and Corsair's HX and AX series PSUs, I've heard good things about all of them. I would also suggest looking for Boxing day deals, they're everywhere and PSUs are pretty popular items for good deals.

Well if you're not going to sli then 600 watts is overkill so I wouldn't go higher than that.Your rig would not need over a quality 400 watt so somewhere between 4 and 600 watts would be ideal.

And like was said antec or seasonic would be your best bet.

If you get an 800+ watt Corsair or Thermaltake you will probably never have to buy another power supply.

In fact, I can comfortably run a Phenom 9750 & GTX295 on a Corsair 700 watt unit.

It's not overkill if it gives you options for the future and guarantees no problems.

Corsair 750 watt. Strong rails. Price is not bad either. $110

While those are nice power supplies there is absolutely NO need for anything that powerful for his rig. A quality 400 watt power supply will easily power that rig.

I actually have never heard that before and mine is running strong. The only thing is that Corsair has made some hidden changes that while it performs slightly better the quality has dropped.

I agree. Personally I would recommend this

That doesn't change the fact that it is a complete waste of money. By that logic everyone would have Silverstone Strider Plus'.

One might consider that the Silverstone Stider plus is $239 (or $189.99, depending on the model) and likely exceeds anything he will be doing with the system. The corsair unit in the link was about is $110 and would make future options he will probably actually be considering feasible. I'd say that is a pretty big difference. However, it is likely he could find a similar unit to that in the $75 to $100 range.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153130 -$100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371026 -$89.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153129 -$84.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151096 - $79.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371015 -$69.99

Although Seasonic is definitely a good brand, from what I've read the minimum recommended requirement for an HD 4850 is 450 watts, not 430. One also might consider the possibility that the OP may wish to upgrade in the near future. If he decides to put a 6970 or a GTX-570 in there tomorrow, does anyone really thing a 430 watt unit would be sufficient for that?

You can definitely run a 4850 on that power supply no problem. Also unless the OP knows he's going to buy those cards then go with what you actually need.

This is just so that we all have a frame of reference.


One might consider that a person who joins a site like this might actually be someone more likely to upgrade than the average consumer.
