My head is going to explode! - Page 4

post #31 of 36
For anyone below a high end gamer level you don't NEED these super expensive top of the line corsair PSU's. something like an OCZ is VERY cheap but of great quality.

Seems like the OP has a Dell, why put a Corsair PSU into a computer worth less than the PSU (joking). But seriously, I picked up a 700w modular PSU from ncix.com for $60 shipped. They come cheaper than that and the 600w can be had for ~$40 on some sales.

See? Heres the 700w OCZ I have for $50 plus tax and something like ~$8 or so for shipping. Beats paying for a $150 Corsair you will never EVER stress to its limits.

A $100 PSU for $50 after instant and MIR rebates. And OCZ is fast and good with getting you your money, unlike my experiences with Crucial (2.5 years and I now have $20/$40 they owe me, won't stop till I get the other $20. If it takes 10 years, I'll get it)

I just upgraded from the 5770. Its a fine card. BadCo 2 mid 40's to low 60's fps.

your Dell will need a little modding to fit a new psu, the rear plate may need to be trimmed with tin snips. Can you link us your system specs, image from dells site?

I would personally purchase a used 5770 here on the forums. You should be able to find them for around $80 or so. You can run a 5770 with an OEM power supply as long as the +12v is up to it. Make sure that your PSU has at least 22 amps on the +12v rail.
