Which PSU will do it justice?

This is supposed to be a budget PC (500€). Any improvements you want to share are welcome. My real question is what kind of PSU should be able to handle this? Haven't built a system in quite a while... and I'm using an american site for language purposes.

CPU: Athlon II X4 640

Motherboard: Asus Evo 870


Ram: Kingston ValueRam DDR3 1333 (4GB)

Video: ATI HD 5770 (its supposed to be the Eyefinity model, sorry)




Now, my gut tells me that a 430W PSU will do the job. But usually my decisions aren't always the brightest.


Let me know what you all think.

  1. A good 430W would work, though I would recommend going with antec 430w Earthwatts, Corsair 550VX or SeaSonic S12II 520w

    You'll probably want one of the latter 2 if you plan on OCing.
  2. 430W it is, and there won't be any OCing. Thanks for the advice!
  3. You'd like to use this...
  4. Another good option would be the Xigmatek NRP-PC402 80Plus Bronze:
    Here's a link to a review of it: http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=es&sl=de&tl=en&u=http://au-ja.de/review-psu2008sub500-12.phtml&rurl=translate.google.com&usg=ALkJrhi4AUHDyyCZ6UDdIdEAzEhACH5BBQ
    Looks like a high quality unit to me. That particular page also shows the cables lengths, have you thought about cables lengths in relation to your case?
  5. anything with about 500watts should do. OCZ makes great power supplies.
  6. The Xigmatek seems good, but what about Cougar psu's? They seem like sold units

    It's a regular ATX case (Xigmatek Asgard), so I'm not too worried about cable length. Thanks for all the help!
