  1. 550W - 600 assume for OC
    Corsair again, xfx, antec, ocz , it's all depend your budget
  2. Some one told me that I need around 800W,it's that true?or 600 as you said is more the enough?
  3. 800W is overkill for singlke card , 800W for Xfire
  4. You really tried to hook that up with a 400w psu? LOL

    Did you even bother to read the power requirements? Since you failed to mention what brand this 400w psu is, I would assume it's generic, and really only put's out 300w or less.

    What's your budget for a psu? A quality 500w would work, but I would suggest a 550-600w quality unit.
  5. Can't beat this deal:

  8. Thank you very much.
  9. Corasir AX units are based off Seasonic X units and a lot of other corsair units are also based seasonic units, just a fyi.

    Seasonic X750

    Seasonic X650
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088&Tpk=x650

    Both are highly overspec'd for their ratings (really 800+w units) and ultra high quality.
  10. CORSAIR GS800 It's good enough?
  11. CORSAIR GS800 enough but performance and efficiency still below HX / AX series
  12. So with this my pc will work ?
  13. yes .... work fine and wok fine
  14. Why do you need to spend $150-200 on a psu when a $50 psu is overkill for your system???? Makes no sense at all.

    There's absolutely no reason to get a 800w psu except to waste your money.

    Your motherboard has no option to add another video card.
  15. Time to spent and waste money :D
