I m building a gamming rig. The list of my approved items just contains an ATI HD4850 so far.
The pending list is PSU (Corsair vs. Cooler Master), mobo (MSI Neo P43 vs. ASUS P5QL-Pro-P43 Based), and an E7200. I hope I m keepin plenty of room for future expansion wid a PCIx2 based slot, Core 2 Extreme support and a 16 GB of RAM (in MSI board).
I wanna know which PSU I should opt for my choices are only three!
All of them lie in the same price band. I m currently tilted towards Corsair as I love their memory sticks. There efficiency levels are almost the same. It comes to who really is the expert in the field. Thats what I think! wat do u think who's the daddy?
I have the Corsair TX650 and a 1 X 4850 - they both work great but my PSU is 100W over-kill. For gaming on a single GPU, the TX550W is probably enough. Also, I would go with a P45 MB (such as P5Q). P45 gets you better OCing down the road if you try to get longer life out of your CPU. I just have not seen any advantage to the P43 MB's (really, not even cost).
