Hi,

I just bought a Sapphire Ati HD 4850 Graphics card for my computer, as my GT220 was getting outdated... I was playing BC2, Crysis, etc yesterday, and noticed the PSU smelled like smoke, and haha that's probably bad.. Its a Raidmax 380 watt psu, (I know, pretty bad) and since ill be doing future upgrades, i figured ill get a new PSU. SO...

Im not very knowledgeable about PSU's, so help me out. I wanna most "bang for your buck" good brand PSU (corsair, antec are some, idk anymore) that will run 2 4850's in CF, 4 GB of ddr3, and a Phenom 2 x4 630 @2.8 ghz.
And i am on a budget...


Thanks immensely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

davcom,
i like that xfx one, but is xfx a good psu brand, or is OCZ better?
Would those 550 watt ones be "futureproof" where i could upgrade?

You'd be able to upgrade to a single Radeon HD 6970 or a couple of non-OCed Radeon HD 6850s in CrossFireX.

If you really wanted to future proof a 650W is the best way to go.
XFX Core Edition PRO650W

And yeah XFX is good quality made by Seasonic.

look take one of those if you want good and clean power for years to come

1- corsair HX 750 Watt good power supply and modular

2- thermaltake tough power more powerful than corsair psu's

unfortunatley most of people think that corsair is better than thermaltake its true but there is model of thermaltake its name toughpower and that is more powerful than corsair
