You've obviously gotten confused at some point.
If you aren't doing CrossFire, the Antec NeoECO 400W is the best choice.
If you are doing Crossfire, the Rosewill 630W is the cheapest valid choice, the SeaSonic S12II 620W is the best choice.
Yes, I did mix some things up. Originally when I posted this I had a Foxconn 890Chipset MOBO requiring the 8Pin connector (I believe it's called the EPS?). However I was convinced to instead get the ASUS M4A79XTD EVO Motherboard instead. This is however a 790Chipset. I then no longer needed the 8 pin connector from PSU's, and now need the 4 pin. Half of newegg has the connectors in the description, and half don't...which is very flustering. The NeoECO however says specifically 1 x 4+4-Pin ATX12V/EPS12V ... right up my alley.
I will purchase this final build found HERE
. (I have already purchased the 955 B.E. 125W CPU)
The only thing not in there is the case. I have a case here...it's a real junker, however it will get what I need done...I HOPE. This is the last thing I am pondering, for the next two hours that is. Perhaps there is a combo deal with a decent case and PSU together? This may be right up my alley...assuming the combo costs under $70.
I can make that sub-total become no more that $348. I have a $10 Gift card, and 4 bucks more in the account to cover shipping costs for everything. (At least $10 in shipping I'd say) So that means...if there is ~$68 headway.Edited by Stripes - 1/3/11 at 6:42pm
