Which PSU should I buy?

Hello. I'am gonna buy a new gaming computer, and I was thinking to buy SILVERPOWER SP-S850 850W PSU ATX. I don't know so much about it, just that pretty many people has gave it 5 stars.

Anyway, I will buy 2x sapphire radeon 280x and i7 4770k.

    It's made by SeaSonic. All of XFX power supplies are made by SeaSonic, who is arguably the best PSU OEM in the market today. The one you linked to is manufactured by Solytech and I don't know much about them.

    But I will buy all my other components from another site which is cheaper then komplett.no. And that site don't got XFX 850w. So could you answer me if that silver power PSU will run well?
  7. I wouldn't buy it.The PSU is the heart of your system , give it a good reliable unit.

    This one should do perfect, http://www.komplett.no/k/ki.aspx?sku=760109


    I can't. I will buy my other components from another site since komplett.no is more expensive. So how will the silver power supply run? Is it quality or shouldn't I buy it?

    Well, I could buy a AX 860w. But then I can't buy i7 4770k. Thats why I'am looking for a pretty cheap power supply.
  10. Agreed go with a quality PSU. Other brands like Corsair, Seasonic and Antec to look at.
  11. It's worth noting that the SP-S850 line is discontinued. Thank god for that.

    It was once good, but it is aging and there are better units around. Units like the HX850 and even better, the Seasonic X850 KM3 (all XFX 850W units, Cooler Master V850, Corsair AX non-i 850 and 860) platform will stand the test of time. Never skimp on the PSU, it just does not pay off..
  13. Spend the money on the XFX , you won't regret it.

    Could you help me to find a PSU for my system. I can max use 999,-. Heres link http://www.supersmart.no/CBC.aspx?q=c:36217;pfd:pvk-e3041r193r194r195

    +1, and for gaming, the 4770K won't make a difference, it is most sensible to go 4670K for gaming. If he can get the AX860 for the price of an XFX 850 XXX on komplett then he should go for that. I have been rocking my Seasonic-Built PCP&C Silencer 750 Quad for 5 years and it has not let me down!

    Sorry for disrupts you. But I have made another thread, and a guy said this "Also, for BF4 benchmarks, the ones posted above are including a bug in the drivers which dramatically effected the performance of the AMD GPUs...the NVidia benchmarks show the AMD FX 8350 to be higher than the 4670k and almost where the 4770k is...which is what you would expect. Then with the overclock of the 9370 at stock, you would achieve something on the order of a 10% gain (roughly) which would put it right around the 4770k in that game. This was pointed out by the moderator Palladin9479 in another thread where he posted the same benchmarks.".

    Is what he say true? Since I can get FX 9370 cheaper then a i5 4670k.
  31. I game with an overclocked FX 8350 , so my opinion is biased towards FX , so i'll let others chime in.

    If you want another "best solution" it would be great if you can help me. Please take a look on this thread: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1851603/9370-4670k-price.html
  33. If you do get the FX-9370, I suggest more aggressive cooling than a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. That thing runs super hot even at stock speed. As for whether or not the statement is true, I don't know. BF4 isn't out yet.

    Edit: and one more thing, you will need a motherboard with a good VRM design or that chip will draw so much power that it can burn out the MOSFET.
