So guys ive been thinking of buying the cx550 corsair psu.

  1. GTX 650 Ti Boost isn't that power demanding, so a powerful PSU isn't needed.

    But I can't seem to locate any information about a CX 550 PSU :P. I know of a VS550 (which I believe you are referring to) which seems to be okay, though it's not 80+ certified.
  2. I cant find cx 550. I know corsair cx 500 and it will be enough for ur system

  3. I have a 650ti boost 2gb as well and im running a CX600 watt, and the above statement is correct. At the minumum I would have a 400 watt psu, but to answer your question yes the 550 watt psu you want will be perfect for that card.

  4. Ah im sorry i was referring to the vs550 ><
    What psu wouod you guys recommend at a cheaper price?
    I know the rule of thumb to not going cheap on a psu but im not upgrading my pc anytime soon.
    A 550W seems like an overkill for me

    For your specifications 500 watts is what I'd recommend. Going with less watts wouldn't hurt, but make sure to buy a good PSU. Anything that is 80+ certified should do the job.

    Corsair make good components. They have good PSUs. I have a Corsair CX600 V2 myself. For you something like a Corsair CX500 would suffice.

    But when buying a PSU, don't buy a cheap one that costs less than $30. You should be spending at least around $50.

    In my country that psu costs roughly over $60 :( guess I'll just settle with the vs550 afterall. Thanks for the replies guys

    The CX500 is $59.99 on Newegg.com at the moment, so a little over $60 isn't unreasonable. But it really depends what you want.

    The VS550 isn't 80+ certified, and the CX500 is.

    I'm only advising. :)
