  1. hmmm i forgot this one:

    Corsair 400W CX PSU


    but i'm concerned about having less than 500w.....just incase
  2. The 400w would be fine for those spec's.
  3. it's just that i think my crappy CIT 550w is causing reboots when under full load - it's only got 12v 16a and god knows what the actual efficiency is.
    would u say that's a reflection on the quality of the psu rather than the wattage then?

    (i dont really know much about this!)
