Hi, I am in the process of building a gaming destop-
My configuration is as follows-
UPDATED Link- sorry about the previous invalid link

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-QL5Z-zQgLBVDZrdXpneD...

I am planning to make it tomorrow. I was hoping if you can judge the PSU based on the build and assist me in finding the right PSU for this build (if the current Corsair CX Series 600W Power Supply is not good enough). I want to get it tomorrow from a Ontario- Canadian dealer. Budget is around $100- $120 limit.

Please advise.

Thanks

yes, but based on my build I am going for 600W or more power. Bronze would have to do. I am just trying to make sure the components don't blow up with limited power; or there isn't highly noticable noise level

Link doesn't work for me.

$120 doesn't get you a gold PSU? I don't know what you have, but a good 450-500W gold PSU is what I'd look to.

That Antec PSU posted above is a decent PSU and won't blast your components.

How is Antec PSU when it comes to noise level? The corsair one in my build goes upto 40db at 100% load level. How does Antec PSU compare against it?

Again, don't know what you have as the link didn't work. If you have a 4670k and a 770 and aren't OCing, a good gold 450W will be fine. 750W is only needed for massive OCing or CF/SLI rigs.

Oh! Then 520W is more than enough for your system.

The system should draw around 300W or so. I have a similar setup with the 7950 which draws more power then the GTX760 and that tops out at 325W from what I remember. I power my setup with a 450W gold PSU. A 520W is more then enough. Nvidia says to buy a 500W PSU to make up for all the junk PSUs out there that can't output what they claim.

I was able to find an EVGA PSU and that too at canada computers- close to my house- http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=3...

would this also be a better option?


I wouldn't change Seasonic to EVGA PSU because Seasonic is the best one and more reliable.

The EVGA should be fine.
