  1. I would get a better PSU, preferably a 550 watt bronze rated or better.

    That is more than enough for what this guy needs. It's a 750ti, I had a 280x, and 520w was more than enough for that gpu.

    I know that the manufacturer suggest 300 watts minimum but one day he may want to upgrade the GPU or add another to run together, and he may need a better PSU then. I would rather him get one that is more than he needs now but enough for future upgrades to save money in the long run. I should have clarified that. To each their own.

    Yeah, I agree with you there.

    Honestly I jacked up because I was not looking at the budget so much anymore, a satisfactory 500-550 watt PSU for a build I would be doing is in the $60 or more price range. Heck I spent a few hundred dollars on my PSU alone because I wanted to be ready for when I added multiple graphics cards. I splurged on a Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200 watt beast and now they quit making them or something so some places want 2-3 times what I paid before. The warranty is awesome, it comes with a load of cables/accessories, and keeps the computers well fed while not heating up the system one bit. I just feel that you can't go cheap on computer parts because you will just end up either messing up your system or replacing the parts later.

    When the time comes to update (3+ years) I will buy a new PSU, no doubt. At that time I'm not going to add another GPU simply because the GTX 750ti SC does NOT support it.

    I really just wanted to know if getting the current PSU is not incredibly idiotic given that it may burn out within a week because I've heard of some horror stories. If what you're saying is true, then I should have no problem.

    Thanks guys!


    Your good. yeah sorry about the mess. I had checked the manufacturer site and like I said they only demanded a minimum of 300 watts to do whatever you have to for now.
