New PSU?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Someone told me my Ultra LSP650 is very low quality. I bought it at TD three years ago.... I might be getting a GTX 560 or ATI 6950... Worth upgrading? I prefer modular so if someone could link me to a good price...?

Thanks

Yeah, it's a piece of crap. Upgrade ASAP.

What's your budget?

650w unit but only pull 38a/456w on 12v. GTX560 is 170w and 6950 is 200w. Based on what you have, it may make the cut but I would look for a solid 550w unit because can handle job and run smooth are two different things. Make up the budget, members will suggest a good unit for you.

Less than $150 preferably. So 550w modular is doable? Sounds good to me

If you just a quad, a single gtx560 or 6950, a solid 550w such as Corsair 550vx should be fine unless you go multi GPUs. Phaedrus2129 is here so I am sure he will pick one for you.

Room for processor overclocks? As I've learned the hard way a few times, you gotta buy the right thing the first time. I have no SLI or Xfire plans in my future, but I will eventually upgrade (maybe SB+DDR3, more energy efficient too?) or overclock my quad more.

Let's say you go for SB 2500k or 2600k, with few HDs and Fans, single GPU like gts 560 or HD6950. With OC, you are looking for 500w to 530w, with a bit head room, 600w. Solid unit like Corsair 650tx (53a/636w) or Antec TP-650(54a/648w) should be fine.

Far less than that. My system with two 4870s doesn't even pull that much from the wall.

Try the SeaSonic X560.

Just add 100w so he can have good sleep.
