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. geekapproved a b ) Power supply August 23, 2011 4:08:11 PM Can't beat this deal: $15 off w/ promo code EMCKBJD39, ends 8/22 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $55 TipToe August 23, 2011 8:21:49 PM My budget is 150-200 $dollars for a PSU,my PSU atm is a Delux.So what you tell me to buy for 150-200$ Dollars? henydiah a b ) Power supply August 24, 2011 2:23:10 AM great and big budget : ...

TipToe August 24, 2011 7:27:01 AM Thank you very much. lilotimz a b ) Power supply August 24, 2011 8:16:00 AM 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 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Seasonic X650 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Both are highly overspec'd for their ratings (really 800+w units) and ultra high quality. TipToe August 24, 2011 8:50:39 AM CORSAIR GS800 It's good enough? henydiah a b ) Power supply August 24, 2011 9:10:44 AM CORSAIR GS800 enough but performance and efficiency still below HX / AX series TipToe August 24, 2011 9:12:55 AM So with this my pc will work ? henydiah a b ) Power supply August 24, 2011 9:16:47 AM yes .... work fine and wok fine geekapproved a b ) Power supply August 24, 2011 2:10:33 PM 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. henydiah a b ) Power supply August 24, 2011 2:49:43 PM Time to spent and waste money Can't find your answer ? Ask !
