I am building a new gaming PC...

-RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz 1x8
-Motherboard: Asrock s1150 H81-DGS

    I was also looking for SSD instead of HD cuz I read that if u have one you will load games and other faster but I don't does it have any impact on FPS and performace in games. Is it true?

    Thank you, I will search a little bit more to be more sure so maybe I'll be able to save 30$ with 420W. :D
  5. Make sure you don't get one of these shitty psu's , make sure you go antec hgc , corsair cs , rm , tx , ax , seasonic , xfx
    not brands like coolmax they're completly destroy your pc
  6. What about LC5550, It costs 46 euros(65$) (I don't know anything about power supply) 550W Silent?
  7. No , get one of the ones i recommended or get an EVGA Supernova 650W 80+Gold psu

    Are Rosewills any good?
  9. Rosewill is a decent PSU brand.

    An SSD will not increase fps in games but will increase t speed of almost everything else massively - a good ssd, for example a Samsung 840 EVO, will be up to 20x as fast as yo HD, so u'll get into Windows super quick, games will load in seconds etc
  10. It will be faster but i rather buy one later and spend the saved money on something else
    Rosewills are good but i still do not prefer buying psu's from them
