Solved

I'm Buying a new PC, would like to know if the PSU is ok

im building a new computer for 3d modeling/rendering, the current specs are:
CPU: Intel Core i7 4790k
MoBo: AsRock Z97 Extreme 4
RAM: Corsair 2 x 8 Gb DDR3 2400
Video: EVGA NVIDIA GTX 780 6Gb card
Storage: SSD Sandisk 256 Gb
Cooling: Noctua NH-U14S

since im not in the states the only power supplies i can get here for 90 - 103 bucks are:
Cooler MAster Extreme II 725w
Thermaltake SP-650M 650w and
Coolmax v-900
there are other choises but mostly thermaltake, cooler master or coolmax.

(the case probably would be a Thermaltake chaser A-71, i think is a good case with good airflow and cable management for the price, plus here we dont have all the brands maybe some cooler masters or NZXT or Raidmax)

I would like to know which PSU would you recommend for this build, thanks

  1. Cooler Master V series is in Tier one so definitely it is recommended but not 900W. For this build 650W 80+ Gold would do the job. Still better get Seasonic/XFX/Corsair HX/TX/EVGA series PSU
  2. Coolmax v-900 < Coolmax is junk one of the worst tier 5.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ezk9OA7aKOE < These are Raidmax in this Video.

    Both Coolmax and Raimax are junk.



    Here's a good one.

  4. thanks for the answers... this is the only store here that brings several brands but still they just have like 2 or 3... http://www.yoytec.com/index.php/cPath/26_67

    i'm buying all the other parts from amazon.com... but the case and PSU are more heavy so it'll be expensive for me to ship it here
