Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

running an athlon iix3 radeon 5850 500gb f3 spinpoint asrock extreme3 8gbddr3 1600

just wondering if this would be a good enough power supply or need to go with 620 watt antec neo eco
Keep getting different saying i need anything from a 380watts to 480watts for this system just wondering if im going to need this one or just spend the 20 here cuz my last psu was doa and am not going to pay the 30 shipping for a $50 psu that i can pickup today at my local comp store

  1. An EA500D will be plenty for a 5850, a 5850 has a rated power consumption of about 150W, so it will work fine on that PSU.

    Seeing u on Asrock 870Extreme3 which is CFable, current PSU is fine if not planning to CF ^^
  3. 500w is plenty, as long as you don't plan on Xfire like batuchka said your fine.
