  1. Also does most 600watt PSU's come with the same connectors??, gotta make sure I get the right one.
  2. Most modern 600 watt PSU's will run a 480 just fine. You should be able to look at each PSU's manufactuerer's web site to determine exactly what connectors come with it.
  3. Damnit CT beat me. That Corsair PSU is definitely a good deal, and it's a quality unit.
  4. Well to me cheap was about 40-50euro or so, so the prices above look good, but will these work in the europe??, different voltage here compared to the USA I believe.
  5. i was actually looking at ebay for one but cant figure out which one to get, i wish this was much easier...

    So long as the PSU has an active PFC you'll be OK.

    Thanks, thats one problem out of the way, main issue is the connectors.

    I found this on ebay, its used but would it work with a GTX 480 until i save up until I can afford a proper gaming PSU?.
  8. A bit high in price for me currently, my budget is about 50euro, I just paid for the card today so funds or low, what do you think of the PSU I posted in the post above??, would it be enough to just run lets say for a couple weeks until I can afford that PSU you recommended.
  9. Well i wouldn't consider it the cheapest, there is much cheaper on abay, but since ye guys know what your talking about I will take your word for it.

    Is there anywhere else other that Ebay that I could get a cheaper PSU than the one on you suggested??. Ebay is a ripoff when buying from england it would probably be better if I bought it off a proper retailer.
  10. Ireland, there is only 2 stores locally, I might try them out tomorrow.
  11. I decided today I will buy the one you suggested,

    But i got a question though, in the description it says its runs at 500watts but the title says 600watts, is this right as the 480 needs 600watts to run.
  12. Can anyone let me know about this??, I got money at the ready to buy it aslong it suits my needs for the GTX 480.
  13. I doubled checked elsewhere for the same PSU and it is 600watt, so ya it must be listed wrong, anyway PSU bought hoping things go smooth when it arrives. This topic can be closed, thanks everyone for the input. ;)
