Hi.
I need some assistance with choosing a decent psu for hd5750 running directx11. I'm on a really tight budget.. so i need cheapest decent psu. I have been looking at the Huntkey 550W Greenstar. Can someone pls tell me if this is enough.

Note. price in (AUS) >$100 (preferably around $50 dollar mark)

I know psu is like the heart of the pc and should not cheap out, but i am on tight budget.

U can bought a HD5750 but can't buy a PSU which is the most important part of your system? Okay, here's the list:

or

or

I wouldn't suggest u anything else below these PSU..
It's very important...



What do u think about the Huntkey 550W Greenstar though.
It seems to have good reviews
If not .. for the Coolermaster Extreme Power, would it be alright if i went with the 460W or 500W to save some money?

that's right... don't cheap out but for $100 i don't consider that cheaping out at all. Get a good PSU. Corsair is one of the best in the market

i have a 520 Watt unit and i run the HD5770 with e8400 CPU with no problem

check out.... I'd stick with something at least 450 Watt, also corsair is conservative with their ratings, so I'm willing to bet my 520W psu is better than that 550W huntkey
also my corsair came with a 5 YEAR warranty

Thanks for great advice. I think i might go with the Coolermaster Extreme Power+ 460W or the Huntkey. I know Corsair's are great quality psu's but they are a bit too pricey for my budget.

btw. how much ram do u have for your HD5770?

I have a XFX HD5770 it comes with 1GB (i think that is standard)

i just check out the XFX HD5750

and that also has 1 GB of RAM

if you haven't already bought the card, i'd go with XFX for the double lifetime warranty which makes it easier to sell (as you can probably tell i'm bing on warranty's)....can believe someone bought it but i ebayed off my xfx 8800GT for like $110 a month ago

haha.. no i haven't bought the card yet. I am kind of thowing up my options, seeing if i would have to select a new psu (and stay within budget) if i were to choose the hd5750.

Thanks for all your help >> i will consider the XFX .. looks like a really good deal

No, problem.

hey just so you know, I see that amazon is running some sort of spend $75 in electronics and qualify for WIRED magazine or $10 rebate.

Not sure how long it'll last but might help you get the PSU or GPU.
If you look at the link i gave you it's listed under "Special Offers..."

The HD5750 uses 16W idle or 86W max output. This is very conservative. Assuming your system isn't really high end you probably don't need a new power supply (maybe an adapter if the card or PSU didn't come with it).

I'd keep your PSU, get the new card, then run some graphics benchmarks for several hours to see if your system is stable (like 3DMark2001 or higher); get the free versions.

Run those benchmarks BEFORE as well for at least two hours to ensure your present system is stable.
