Will my 550w PSU support my upcoming build? - Page 5

post #41 of 42
Sure any 500w psus from corsair, antec, OCZ modxtreme, seasonic will be able to handle that load. I think people are paranoid sometimes about PSU here on OCN. I have a generic old 300w that used to power my oc'ed athlon ii x2 and oc'ed gfx card.

It claims it can also do 450w continuously, which it does with the electrical performance in spec. I've said it many times already and I'll say it again. It's an okay unit. Not good, not great.

Exactly.
