I intend to replace some parts in my current system, more or less complete overhaul. Right now i have an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200, ecs mobo, 3 gb ddr 800 ram, his 4670 1gb, WD 500gb HD and a 500w xtech power supply.
I plan getting on getting these parts: ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AMD Motherboard AMD Phenom II X6 1055T CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
I would like to minimize expenses as much as possible and wondering if i can use my current power supply, and if not, what's a recommended bargain or budget psu i can get?
More about1055t recommended power supply
i'm not sure if u have enough power on ur PSU..but for reccomedation i would say go with Corsair GS600.. u can get it for around USD 100..very nice PSU
assuming u don OC and u have 1 optical drive with no other PCI peripherals,, u would need at least 400W PSU..
for around USD 50,,u can get Corsair CX430W 80plus certified
It really depends on the GPU. The CPUs only use ~125W (whatever it's rated for), and then a similar amount for the mobo/RAM combined. The 500W PSU should be plenty even if you're keeping the 4670, etc.
