Hi fellas. I am in the process of putting together a build. It is a lot harder deciding on parts than i thought it would be. I am pretty sure i will be going with the 8400 or the 6600 intel chip and the 4870 1gb video card. How much power do i need? What is my best bang for the buck option for this system? I guess my main thing after a quality power supply would be how quiet it is.

Thanks guys

Robert

PC P&C Silencer 500w

Bang / Buck doesnt really apply to PSU's. You get what you pay for. If you want to risk your components go cheap and get more advertised wattage.
If you want to be able to trust that you are getting what you are paying for then get a brand eg Corsair, PC P&C, Antec.
I selected the one above as its reliable, provides enough power and is quiet.
However it wont handle crossfire 4870 so if you plan to go that route then step up to the 750w.

Wow, that looks like a hell of a deal. Would that be enough watts to push the system i posted for sure?

Thanks
