I am building a pc this mid year holiday with the following specs:
AMD A10-5800K APU
Corsair vengeance 1x4 gb ddr3-1600
Seagate 500GB 7200rpm hdd
Cm elite 431 plus
Asus 24x dvdrw Multi
What will be a nice psu in the 350-450 watt which will satisfy my system... Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry if I reply late, because I slept, and won't be replying for another 6 hours.
GO for Asus Mobos, Asrock boards are made of cheaper material & AMD machines are very hot when loaded, so you can imagine how long your mobo will last, And Cooler Master Elite 370 USB 3.0 Version is also good & is a quite costly but have good features in that price, And if you are planning to buy a Graphics Card later, then go for 500-550W from Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, and if not, then go for 400W, it will meet all computing requirement you provided.
ASRock motherboards are solid motherboards. They skim out a bit to make some board be non-standard in height, but nonetheless, they are solid motherboards. I have build some systems with ASRock and I have never had issues. A lot of others who use ASRock also like them.
Well hi everyone I just woke up...... Lol.... So I will not add a graphics card, but I will use the IGP for gaming, and I'll possibly over clock the CPU to 4.3-4.5 GHz. Will the seasonic 350w oem do the job for the build or I can just use any cheap Chinese spinoff from a case which provides 380w.. Well, I don't think so, but what do you think?
Well as much as I wanted to try antec psus they aren't sold at my local retailer here. I'm an Indonesian.... This is the website I refer: http://rakitan.com/kategori.php?id=33 so seasonic is the decent choice here.. So you would say the psu I mentioned above is enough?
The Seasonic is the better of those two. That Antec doesn't suck, but it isn't 80+ and is not as good.
Since you mentioned gaming, I can assure you that at some point, if you're playing modern 3D titles, you will want to add a discrete graphics card. Either of those PSUs will support a HD7750, but you will want something stronger if you plan to get a better card. A 380W Antec Earthwatts is enough for any graphics card with a single PCIe power connector on it (even if the recommendations are for higher wattage; they are trying to anticipate all the cheap junk out there).
Seasonic doesn't seem to know how to make a bad PSU, so any of theirs will be good. Get one closer to 400W if you want to be able to run any graphics card with a single-PCIe power connector.
So you're thinking I'm better on the 400w model? Well that's a big thing because of the equivalent of the $10 bucks difference between 350 and 400w. I'm still on school and gets money from saving and partially my parents.
