Hello my PSU just went out and I need some advice on buying a new one.
I built this system about 3-4 years ago. My System: MB. Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 REV. 1 MEM. Gskill 2gb PC2-6400 (x2) CPU. Intel Dual Core 2.4 E6600 VC. EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTS HD. Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 500gb Wester Digital Caviar SE WD800JD 80gb (x2) Case. Cooler Master CM Stacker 810 ATX
I had a Thermaltake PSU 850W (This was aparently overkill brought on by my "new build" stupidity). But it took a crap, I checked with the paperclip method. I am willing to pay around $100 if I have to, money is a little tight but I and my wife need this pc working. I am mostly concerned with functionality (if its a little more power then I need thats ok) and reliability, if I need to pay more for something thats going to last thats fine with me.
I would appreciate help and advice.
You don't need anything above a quality 300W PSU. Check out Antec and Corsair on newegg. Earthwatts 380 is a good choice.
Thanks for the help. I am going to try the Earthwatts 380.
