PSU for HTPC

Hey all,

What PSU would you recommend for an HTPC with an 2600xt card? I want to keep my build under budget so I want a PSU for less then 60$. Any good models worth checking?

    List your complete system specs. I use this to power a micro system with Pentium D, 7600GT, 1 GB RAM. The price is great for the quality.

  2. CPU : E6550
    RAM: OCZ Reaper 6400 2 gig
    mobo: Gigaybte p35 s3
    1 sata hard drive
    display card: 2600xt
    DVD/rw
    And a WinTV-150 MCE kit
  3. This is over your budget, but it has plenty of 12v amps to power an 8800GTS.

  4. that's overkill for my system, my 2600xt card doesn't need that much power
  5. The FSP I listed is a great unit so far. Been running it all day long in the front office. I replaced a generic 400 wat unit that was just too noisy. The FSP is much more quiet and my system runs very cool and quiet now.
  6. I would go for the Seasonic S12 330 if low noise is a priority. 330W may seem small, but it is more than enough for your system and it is also more energy efficient than the FSP PSU that was recommended.

  7. I would go after that seasonic too... you will thank your self for getting a quiet PSU.
  8. The 380W Seasonic can be found at XPCGear.com for only $60. That perfectly fits your quoted budget, and gives you more power.
