Cheap reliable PSU for 6850

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
With sandy bride coming out, and my sig rig long gone and sold I was thinking of building a new comp. I want to go fairly cheap on everything but the GPU, CPU and Mobo. I'm having a hard time selecting a power supply, you can get some for VERY cheap. But I seriously doubt a $20 PSU will be very reliable. Anyone mid pointing me in the right direction? What kind of wattage would i need for a 6850 anyway?

I was thinking something like this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817182038

but maybe rosewill isnt very good? Or maybe there is a cheaper, better PSU out there?

Skip the Rosewill RV2 series. Rosewill have some decent units, but the RV2s are not it.

A quality 400W should run your planned system fine, 550-650W if you want to go Crossfire at some point. A quality ~400W will cost $40-$60.
