I've been in a huge confusion ever since i decided to buy a graphic card regarding which one i must go with and i finally found something good enough for me.
My PC spec is very weak and hence i only needed a gpu which would enable me to play games like Crysis 3 , BF3 , Heart of the Swarm etc at High [Not ultra or very high] on 1280x1024 resolutions. Hence , i chose Radeon HD 7770 , which was perfect for me considering my weak pc spec.
This is my PC spec:
Processor : Core2Duo E7400 @2.80 ghz
Mainboard : Gigabyte Tech G31M-S2C
RAM : 2x2 = 4 GB DDR2
Hard disks : 1 TB x 120 GB [2 HDD]
GPU : Radeon HD 7770
PSU : 250w [ NEED SUGGESTIONS FOR REPLACEMENT]
OS : Windows 7 32-bit
The real reason i posted this thread is because i would like you guys to give me a BRIEF watts consumption of each and every component i mentioned to you in here so that i can go for a good PSU as per it.
Would 500w be enough for me? or should i go for 600w? , my budget is minimum.
EDIT: Without calculating it up, I know your PC will draw under 250 watts. Use the calculator so you can plug in other details like number of fans etc. I suspect when your done it will show just over 200 watts draw.
There is no need to go too technical. A Cosair CX430 430 watt psu for $30 after $10 at Newegg will work well. Very little competitions at the lower end price point. Good quality and a good company to back it up' Check the reviews.
even with a 7770 your gonna be at "low" settings at 720P rez. youre on the borderline to run todays games. and 4gb of ddr2? your 32bit windows only uses 3.4gb. and a core2duo3.0 is required for crysis3. you are at the bottom of the barrel and need an upgrade.....can you play it? sure at 20fps.
I don't need the exact consumptions figure , any rare assumptions on each of those components is fine for me..
The answer is they draw about 210 watts give or take. You asked it as a break down if you want that use the calculator and it will answer your question. The two main pieces listed below(rounded). A 400 watt PSU would be more than adequate for your build.
Core2Duo E7400 = 90W
Radeon HD 7770 = 90W
