I am looking to upgrade my PSU to support my new graphics card. The card requires 450 Watts. My PSU that I currently have is a standard size ATX PSU (5.5" by 5.9" by 3.4").
Can someone recommend a specific PSU to me that will provide enough energy? I've been having a hard time finding one that I can use, the one I have been looking at was the Corsair VX450 but after a bit more reading I found out that it emits a noticeable squeal, when not under load.
HP Pavillion 6350z Desktop
AMD Phenom II X4 820
2 Sticks of DDR3 RAM
1 7200 RPM Harddrive
An HP DVD/CD-ROM
nVidia GTX 460 786MB (being installed soon)
300W PSU (Being Replaced)
A modular PSU gives you extra options for keeping a case neat. There are no performance advantages.
I can't find any reviews on the Rosewill RD500-2DB that give a clue to it's quality and ability to perform well.
And the Rosewill RD500-2DB looks to have slightly less power on the 12V1 and 12V2.
I looked at everyone's posts, very good units they are, but in the end I had to go back to Corsair for the size. My case has a vent right next to the PSU which would be blocked if I got a PSU bigger than the one I have now.
I really appreciate the help given though, thank you.
