  1. an i3 gaming build isn't a gaming build.
    it is too week imho, either get a i5-750 or an am3 build
    btw, I have 3 comps at home and my power bills aren't high at all, the comp doesn't take that much of a juice.
  2. Thanks BRO
    But i would be OCing it on Stock Voltages & i already mentioned that i needed a low on electricity.
    BTW Thanks
  3. Apparently the Seasonic PSU you're looking at isn't in stock, and even if it is in stock it ends up being the same price as this OCZ Z-Series OCZZ650 650W ATX12V 2.2/ EPS12V 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Active PFC $110 with $20 rebate. Being Gold certified should mean that it uses even less energy.
  4. better one is this
