Mushkin http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... OCZ PSU: cant really decide which one you need since I dont know how much power consumption a ATI 5000 or the Gt 300 will be. obsidian86 August 10, 2009 3:49:39 PM this psu seems an exellent deal http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... obsidian86 August 10, 2009 3:52:09 PM next gen cards will prob use less or similar amount of power as current gen cards Helloworld_98 August 10, 2009 4:00:57 PM ^ well the GTX 300 is rumoured to use a heck of a lot of power (something like nearly the same as what the 5870 X2 will when it comes out) @OP, don't get an SSD on that budget, put the money towards a nice graphics card since you'll be gaming on it, go for a 4890 ideally. obsidian86 August 10, 2009 4:05:24 PM it will be on a smaller manufacture process there by using less power but should be more advanced but i think it should balance out Helloworld_98 August 10, 2009 4:12:53 PM ^ it also uses a bigger die iirc and that adds quite a bit of power usage. fluoxetin August 10, 2009 7:45:00 PM helloworld_98: i`ll wait with gpu for directx11, maybe i should get something lie this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... BTW. SSD would be nice for video edit... Helloworld_98 August 10, 2009 7:47:57 PM ^ the SSD would be nice but your budget isn't high enough for it, unless you get one of the new Crucial M225's.
