What size PSU should I use for this build?
Jul 16, 2012, 5:00 AM
Hello all, I am (once again) reaching out to the community for an answer to a question. I have a build in the works right now, and I need to know what size PSU would be minimum, and what size would be IDEAL for this build. My specs are as follows:
- Sony Optiarc 24x DVD Burner -
- WD500GB Caviar Blue Internal Hard Drive -
- GTX 560 non ti 1GB GPU -
- Team Elite 8GB RAM 1600 speed -
- AMD FX 6100 6 Core processor 3.3ghz -
- Gigbyte GA-970A-D3 AM3+ Motherboard -
Thanks for the answers people.
P.S. If anybody could tell me how well this build could run BF3 at ultra, it would be so much appreciated! I'll even give you a cookie

this can help you with the calculating the PSU watts needed
a 500W PSU is the result but if i were you i would get more (a 600W)
with that rig BF3 will run good with 40+ fps all maxout, i got AMD's 955 @3.4 and a GTX470 with 50-45fps avg
my cookie plz
