Well I started a thread earlier about my PSU making noise...I bought it used a while ago so I can't RMA it, so I guess I'm in the market for a new PSU. I read reviews of my PSU and apparently its crap, even though its from coolermaster.
Can someone recommend a cheap one? My brother helped me build my system and I don't really know what I'm doing.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Extreme CPU X9650 @ 3.00GHz (4 CPUs)
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Hard Drive: 640 GB + 1000GB
Video Card: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 1 G
Motherboard: ECS Black Series P45T-A LGA 775 Intel P45
You learned the hard way about cheap power supplies. I recommend the following brands: ocz, antec, seasonic, enermax, corsair, or pc power and cooling. For your 4870, a 550-750w in one of my recommended brands should work fine. Check newegg for rebates. Corsair and pc power and cooling have the highest 12v rails which are critical when gaming.
