  1. Honestly, whats the build for? You would probably be better served with a cheaper motherboard and CPU to increase your RAM and GPU if you intend to game on it?
  2. At least get around a GTX 660 if you're looking to game at all
  3. Why would you pair that CPU with that GPU? And how much are you looking to spend for a power supply?
  4. If you just want a PS for your present set up, a 550W will do, a 650W will give you some breathing room. If you plan to upgrade your graphics card in the future and even go CF/SLI then go with a nice 850W.

    Coolermaster has a new set of power supplies out that are really neat. High efficiency so they run cool and quiet, plus modular cables to reduce cable clutter in your box to a minimum. Plus the cables are flat so they will route nicely and stay down.

    Here is a 700W solution, that is top quality, yet a killer price for what you get, $100.

    750 watts for just 60$. bronze certified, from a very good company. Cheapest reliable PSU you can get. Should be good for even an i5 4670k + SLI 770
  6. A question for Ansel:

    What is the story behind your build? It is way out of balance, with a 3570K processer and a 5670 graphics board.

    Now we are getting somewhere. My Coolermaster recommendation at $100 is an excellent power supply with all the bells and whistles you could want. That leaves $250 for a graphics card.

    This is crazy cheap for a 7950 graphics card.

    Next is the 7870 LE edition, a slightly tuned down 7950 card:

    Then you have your typical 7870 & 660:

    Good luck
  10. or the corsair PSU, which is more than sufficient and spend almost $300 on the GPU...

    I have never seen anyone before recommend a $100+ PSU... excepting 1500 watt supplies...
  11. I would just get that 7950 by powercolor if i was him.

    you get 4 really cool games + it's like the best performance GPU for around 250$.

    Personally though, i would suggest a GTX 770. Yes it's 150$ more expensive, yes you won't get any games.

    But, wow it's performance should last you for another 3-4 years. the 7950 is already getting outdated with the latest most demanding games such as crisis 3.

    I think in 3-4 years, 770 will still run games on high. But your 7950 will have to run games on medium-low, forcing you to make another big upgrade. In the long run, i think the 770 is cheaper, as i can just SLI another 770 as well for another 3-4 years of top tier performance. Crossfire just don't work that well as SLI

    You don't really need to spend $100 on a PSU. You could spend $50 - $60 on a PSU and then upgrade your GPU to a Radeon 7870 XT. Maybe try something like this:

    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096
    OR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013

    And then for GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202024

    Not if it's a CX. Get a low end Seasonic if you're going to do that.

    Interesting? Most people seem to find them fairly reliable?
