Solved

Advise me about the most optimal PSU to buy please

My setup:
MSI P6N Platinum w/ Nvidia 650i & 6gb ddr2 ram
Intel dual core e6600 OC @ 3.0 ghz
Nvidia 8800 gts 640mb
2 sata hdd
1 sata dvd-rw

Yes, I know all these are relatively old components, but I see no reason to buy a whole new comp right now.
I have been using an OCZ 700W gaming PSU, but I never had 2 gpus, so I think it was overkill.

If i want to keep my overclock abilities, what kind of PSU or what wattage rating am i looking for?
I still don't know much about PSU's so I'm looking for any type of advice/recommendations.

Thanks Much.

  1. Shouldn't have a problem with a 700W OZC.
  2. It is now broken.

    Anything from Corsair,Antec,Seasonic,or OCZ.
    A 450w psu will run your gear.
    I would buy a 650W if you plan on a platform upgrade soon.
    Costs effective and you can re-use it.
    What's your budget?
  4. aiming for less than 50 bucks

    Where are you from?
    What e-tailers?
  6. im from the usa mainly go with newegg, but I could care less.

    getting it from the local (st. louis) microcenter would be a lot faster.
