Lately I've been looking for a new PC and I though, the heck with it, I'll just get a whole new experience and build my own. I've pretty much got most of the parts I want but I'm really a little lost as to the PSU... No clue what's best there...
I've got the following parts already:
Asus M4A79XTD EVO + Phenom II 955BE (AMD 790X)
For the ram I can either buy:
2 Dual-kits of 4GB OCZ obsidian 1600MHz DDR3 RAM for $ 205
8gb kingston 1066MHz DDR3 from some local around here for $ 190
a quad-kit of Kingston HyperX 1333MHz for $ 296,71 from the same shop as all the other stuff listed above
Which to pick?
As far as I could find all this is compatible with each other but I need a PSU... And I really have no clue how much power I need...
FYI this system is to last for another 5 years (as my current 512MB RAM onboard VGA core 2 duo from 2003 ) and not for hardcore gaming.
If anyone could help me out a little, or push me in the right direction that'd be awesome =)
With that PSU, it's not the 430Ws that would worry me, it's the quality. Don't get me wrong, it may be top notch. But there's a reason you usually see the same brands recommended: Corsair, Antec, PC Power & Cooling, Seasonic, etc.
