  1. Seasonic 620w modular unit from newegg.com. 69 bucks I think. They make the best on the market. I use them in the workstations I sell because they are super reliable and stable under load, quiet too. They cost a bit more, but its worth it.

    newegg looks like an amazing site however im from the UK. £71 im seen cheapest. i was looking more towards £50 - £60 max.
  3. Seasonic 620W modular is still a recommended PSU.

    thanks. if i were to upgrade my gpu what would be the max. (ati radeon hd ????) also with 16GB crucial ballistix tracer (4 x 4)
  7. HD7950
  8. HD7970.
  9. would this suffice as it is a bit cheaper and a bit smaller w wise
  10. would either of them be ok to overclock fx6300 to 4.0GHz

    thanks
  11. Yes as long as you use aftermarket cooler, the overclock is different with all chips.

    so either psu are suitable then.

    im looking at either cooler master 212 evo or Zalman CNPS14X. they both will fit in my case
  13. The EVO is the best bang for your buck!
  14. That psu and the EVO and you are set to go.
  15. Ok thanks for all your help
