Hi mates !
I'm building PC and wondering how'd you think what frequency PSU should have for that PC (example - 600W)
Specs:
- Radeon R9 280X or like that
- One pick of 8GB Ram
-1 x HDD
- AMD FX-6300
- Asus M5A97 LE R 2.0 (usual desktop motherboard)
Better to have more frequency to overlock or small upgrades like audio card
So , what you think ?

This will consume about 450-500.
You need a 650W min PSU but a good 550 or 600 can be suficient.

I would go for a Seasonic G 650W PSU.
Great eficiency, 80+ gold and 5 years guarantee.

280x eats a loooooot of power and this bad boy will be great for your system!

I'd stick with the Xfx actually. Looks like that Chieftec uses CWT as it's OEM supplier, which is also used by the corsair vs series, and they aren't the best units out there. Not bad, per se, but there are better ones available for not a lot more money. Such as an Xfx model.
