Upgrading, Which PSU to get? Tags: Power Supplies Power Components Product Last response: March 20, 2006 12:19 PM in Components Share johncastle March 17, 2006 4:29:12 PM A lot of people are asking what psu to get. Here is mine Want to change the noisy 300W supply in my asus case. My new system will be sth like the following: Venice 3200+ (socket 939) Msi Nforce4 ultra platinium(Maybe another board but NOT an SLI) Radeon X850XT (in the future I may think of upgrading to 7900 or 1900 series) What I am looking for is a powerful enough supply which is QUIET and Stable . I may think overclocking Venice in the future but I am not a OC freak. Well so far I have liked the following: ENERMAX Whisper II EG565P-VE FMA(24P) 535W Power Suppl http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103512 ENERMAX Noisetaker EG495P-VE SFMA 485W Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103457 Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 550W Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103931 I will appreciate any suggestions More about : upgrading psu Rugger a c 158 ) Power supply March 17, 2006 4:51:05 PM Any one of the PSUs you listed would be sufficient and all of them are good PSUs.

How much is that X850XT going to cost you? I ordered it from newegg , 154$ If the psu can satisfy my needs in the near future(A few small upgrades) too, it would be nice. But the main thing is to be Quiet and Stable(The older one gives me a headache sometimes). Related resources PSU Upgrade, which to buy? - Forum Should i upgrade PSU? If so which one?
