a b ) Power supply

Hi, I built my computer last week and today my power supply made a huge pop and firework effect when I tried to power on my computer. The rest of my components are as follows:

AMD FX-6300 3.5Ghz 6-Core
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P ATX AM3+
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 760 2GB
Case: Zalman Z11 Plus ATX Mid Tower

So I am looking for a new power supply, definitely around 700W with 80+ efficiency, even 90+ if price is not too high, keep the price under 130$ definitely.

Any replies appreciated, thanks :)

for your build you arent gonna need 700+

heres one that looks sick and is very reliable.

they are made by seasonic, which is a great brand.


Well I will definitely want a 650W, if I said I wanted 700W it means I want it :3 I will be overclocking, that's the reason :)

the tx750 is also a great PSU.

and still. overclocking will not make you require 200+ more watts.


Same link you posted.



use the drop down list under the price and choose desired wattage

well of the two. the cx 750 modular one is good
the first link

they are really the same just the first one has a modular design.

the corsair CX series really has nothing on the xfx core pro series
