What Power Supply Do I Need? Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: December 27, 2006 2:19 AM in Components Share Roger123 December 26, 2006 6:52:02 PM The only part I've got left to buy for my new PC is a power supply and I'm wondering which to get. Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13ghz ATI X1950XT 2GB DDR 800mhz 1 SATA HD 1 IDE DVD-RW http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine suggested a 425W PSU (as I plan on trying to overclock the CPU), so 500W should be ok. Here are some I've found. OCZ GameXStream 600W PSU - 120mm Fan SLI Ready ATX12v v2.2 - £82 Coolermaster IGreen 600W PSU - 85% Efficiency 8pin ATX12V v2.2 120mm Fan - £87 Seasonic S12 Series 600W SLI Certified ATX2.0 PSU - £90 Tagan Dual Engine TG600-25 600W PSU - £91 Thanks EDIT - Seems I entered some info into the PSU calculator incorectly, it suggested a 425W PSU this time.

OCZ makes a nice modular one that is a bit higher powered. I'd trust it, they have good customer support and warranty. Any reputible name brand is good. Read the reviews and choose wisely. I'd go modular for sure. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Roger123 December 27, 2006 2:19:20 AM Your right, I did enter the wrong info. This time it said I need a 425W PSU. I think I'll go with "OCZ GameXStream 600W PSU - 120mm Fan SLI Ready ATX12v v2.2". NewEgg says it's specs are +3.3@36A +5V@30A +12V1@18A +12V2@18A +12V3@18A +12V4@18A -12V@0.5A +5VSB@3.0A Does that sound ok? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
