Guys I'm looking for a suiting PSU for this build, PCpartpicker estimated around 450 watts of use (this is without the optical drive + HDD).

Please keep in mind I can't make use of any special deals, coupons etc.

  1. Do you plan on Sli?
  2. This power supply http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20850xr From Evga and Super Flower...
    Will be one of the best, It has a 10 Year warranty, Great Customer service, 80+ Gold, Japanese Capacitors, 90% Efficency, Made by Super Flower so its a quality product, Eco fan mode, 4 way via card support, And fully sleeved cables.

    It is an amazing quality psi.

    If you don't plan on Sli (Which you should) then the http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cs550m would be an "ok" Choice.
    But i highly recommend a 850w Power supply for SLI down the road. (or xFire)

    I would love to have one but I'm already over my budget, do you know some cheap 500-600 watt power supply's?

    Also I'm to poor for SLI :l

    Do you know a good bronze cheaper alternative, I'm still highly considering this one.
  7. This one: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cmpsu600cxv2 is also a very good one but its quite a bit more expensive, The one i linked before is a very good one.
