@OP: Not an 80+ and active PFC... A bit of a gambling there. Since there's no guarantee that the components used is of good quality. Even one of the reviewer said that it died after 3 weeks. R.I.P, little PSU... :lol:

That's why I said it was a gamble. There has been legends (as if they're that old :lol:  ), that PSUs died over and over on a system, only to notice that the owner has been using low quality PSU.

I'm not saying yours is one of them, but the past experience of the "victims" should be enough as proof. Reputation is earned, not advertized. But assuming you're not OC'ing, the burden towards the PSU should be moderate. Thus, keeps you safe for these past months. I just don't want to be one of those guys that will say: "See. I told you so." when it happens. :p

Everyone? It's on the very first page.



Don't get me wrong here, I'm not insulting your rig or try to start a debate here, but personally for me, of all the parts in a PC, my main concern is the PSU. If a CPU is like the brain, then the PSU is the very heart of the system. Simple analogy, yet true.

A lot of posters here wept and cried because their dead PSU took the others down the grave with it. HDDs and GPUs are the most common parts in question.

It's not often, but I personally don't want that to happen to me. $50-70 as insurance for a $400-500 rig is fair enough for me. But hey, there's people with literally $10 (yes, that's not a typo. $10) PSUs lived to see the next day for months, even years. So it's a gamble. Question is: Are YOU a gambler yourself? ;)

VGA the montior is like from 2005-2006. From a older hp bundle worked with my 9500 gs not my ati 5770. It goes to 1240x1080 @ 60 hz and whenever I try to use just that 1 montior it won't work.

your 5770 will able to max WoW at 1240x1080. However for 1680x1050, m not sure because my 5850 is runnign at 30 to 40 FPS.

When i had got my new computer built about 3 weeks ago it wouldn't run my monitor with the VGA cable so i tried the DVI Cable and was surprised that it worked, so might just wanna see if you can try that first.

It doesn't have a DVI. It's okay I love my HD monitor I want bulletstorm so bad! I can max out with no aa. but when I reduce shadows it plays better I might make a youtube vid to show off my rig.

@damasvara

It died because it was touching the southbridge heatsink which over heated a part of the card and it couldn't "breathe" so it died but it was a malfunction bacuse the fan was still running so the gpu died.

Wow, and that happened after a long 4 weeks? Quite a fighter there the 4850 :lol: 

I thought it was (also) because of unstable or insufficient power supply to the GPU, but I was definitely wrong then. :p 

Well, if you're sure that's the only cause, then it's fine. Just for comparison, my friend, who build an internet cafe with HD4200 IGP and Athlon dual core CPU, bought 6 AcBel 420W which one of them died after a year. It just died. So he went to the shop who sold it and got a brand new replacement.

I need to point out that the the warranty is LIFETIME. Which specifically means that if the same model is still in stock, then even after 5 years of usage, it can still be replaced by a new one. I don't know whether or not this is applicable globally, but my point is: if a LIFETIME WARRANTY PSU can die after only a year, how long can a 3 months warranty PSU lasts? Surely it's a matter of luck alone, on how long a no-name PSU lasts.

Unlike other PC parts which varies in features and performance issue, PSU main issue is reliability and stability, especially under heavy load. You won't see an enthusiast PC with "generic" PSU. That's because the builder realized how important a PSU is for a system. Just a little something to think about.

I can tell that you're offended by my comments. That's pride, I know. But you won't be so proud if anything were to happen to that fine rig of yours just because of a $30 PSU. Consider getting an Active PFC, 80+ certified reputable brand PSU which is more reliable.

Some guy ran a 260 gtx which is more powerful than ati 5770 i'm sure it's fine but i'll take a look :)  My cooling is great I have a intake outake and my fan has TONS of air ducts even a vga and CPU so it's solid. The ati 5770 runs at 50-55 C is that bad or good?

The setup is fine, without a doubt. The GPU temperature is still within normal. But from the electrical stability aspect, it's at risk.

I personally bought a $45 400W active PFC 80+ PSU for my, literally, crappy (since I went for the Green concept) rig for the sake of insurance. Also because my $25 died after only a year and a half. :p  Ah, those days of being such a noob. I'm glad I got through it. :lol:

I'm on 1680x1050, good frames in stormwind and raids most settings on ultra/high except shadows and sunbeams (personal choice though)
