A quality 750W will work fine, but there's nothing wrong with using the larger one if you like. You'll find a list of all the best ones linked from the guide. | Report abuse Anonymous Gaming Expert October 10, 2010 7:29:41 PM Great thanks for the help. | Report abuse tecmo34 Gaming Expert October 11, 2010 12:41:30 AM Proximon's link is a great link. What is your price range for your PSU? I would recommend going with either SeaSonic, Corsair or XFX for your PSU. CPU: I would go with the Intel Core i7-950 for a little more money. Hard Drive: I would recommend going with the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB instead. RAM: I would look at the G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1600 memory. It is a great set for the price!! | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Gaming rig psu recommendations> Related ressources: ForumLooking for MOBO and PSU recommendations for budget gaming rig ForumFirst Build - Recommendations for Video editing/ gaming rig ForumRecommendations for first gaming build.
