Is this PSU good enough for my system?!?!?!?

http://www.kingwin.com/pdut_detail.asp?LineID=&CateID=2&ID=252
450W and its also only $50 CDN

Im planning to run it with

Pentium D 930
1GB DDR2 4200
XTX 7600 GT
and stuff

Is this plenty for it?
And enough for upgradeability??

  1. Never knew kingwin made PSU's, but prolly not, stick with brand names, Antec, FSP Group, Fortron Source, Seasonic etc.
  2. they do since i have the link up there.

    I want to spend a minimum amount of money for my case/psu.

    How about this one??

  4. Well, first of all that one appears to be out of stock, and second I wouldn't trust the cheapo 350W PSU that comes with it any further than 23% of the distance I could fling it by the wires. With that GPU, (which may not need its own power connector; my eVGA 7600GT doesn't), you'll still probably want 2x+12v rails with 16A-18A on them. Total wattage may look like enough (my system draws <180W), but wattage where you need it probably isn't.
  5. Its stupid to get a crappy PSU, if your PSU fails it could fry some more expensive peices of hardware with it. So dont skimp on a PSU

    Will it work? Probably, but you can get a fortron PSU (or one made by them under another name) for around the same price.

    It might be worth looking on silentpcreview. They're geared towards quiet computing, but they have some of more thorough PSU reviews out there.

    Watts on PSUs are like Watts on a receiver....if you buy a cheap receiver that says it's 100 wats/channel, it's not the same as 100/channel on an expensive receiver.....they're probably not measured in the same way.

    Good luck.
