Hi

I was playing Fifa 14 last night, and my PC went "BOOM!!!" and cut out, I think my PSU could not handle the power of the 7850 and other things it was powering.
My default PSU I got with my PC is 500W, cant remember its brand or anything else about it, I assume it was cheap, it seemed it.

Anyway I've bought this http://www.cclonline.com/product/42159/PC-750AUBA-M/Pow...

From a local shop, will this handle the 7850, a couple of fans my SATA drive and DVD drive.

OEM power supplies usually advertise a wattage, but can't hit the target very well, and isn't rated for constant use at that wattage.
A good 500W PSU should handle a 7850 fine.

So I get that its probably not truly 750w, 750w might be overkill for a 7850 anyway.
Do you think that supply will handle the 7850, or will I be getting another psu again soon.

Forgot to add, I've got an FX-8350, there pretty power hungry too.
I'm out of money for now so its going to have to do, I'll fit it tonight and update results of its performance, it seems to be a PSU from an unknown brand with little on line feedback about it.

just get like a 600 watt power supply from a good brand like corsair antec and such ... you would want a power supply from a good trustworthy brand so your computer does not go 'BOOM' and risk any further damage to other components.

I'd already bought that "Powercool" supply, been ok so far and I've been gaming a lot lately.
Got addicted to Skyrim and modding the hell out of it
