Hey guys.
Do you know what of those 2 PSU's should i choose for my new PC ?

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K
Motherboard: MSI P67A-C43 B3
GPU: Sapphire HD 6950 Twin Cooler
Case: Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212+
Hard Disk: Samsung Spinpoint 1 TB F3 HD103SJ
Memory: 4 GB Kinston 1333 Mhz
Optical Drive: LiteOn iHAS124-19 B SATA

I will be only overclocking my CPU to 4.0 GHz and perhaps unlock shaders for my GPU in the future.
So which one would you recommend ?
Thanks

I think you need more than 430W , minimum 500W and 550 would be great, get from antec, seasonic, corsair, xfx.

of the two,I would suggest the Seasonic, but I would suggest a 650 watt unit from Corsair, Seasonic, PCP&C, Antec, or Enermax.

Yeah, well unfortunately in my country we don't have an Antec, Corsair, or XFX PSU'S.
But will that Cooler Master GX 550W be good ?
Thanks

Based on CoolerMaster's prior history with PSU's, it is questionable at best.
Is a higher wattage Seasonic PSU available?

Neither one has enough power, but of the two, I would use the Seasonic... :pt1cable:

But according to most review sites, GX series tend to be lacking in quality and stability when under load.



Get the Seasonic... just don't overclock.

^+1 true as far as i've researched the CM GX psu line.
The GX 450 has different internals from another oem and is a good unit.
I've read numerous reviews of the GX 750 and it's also a Fail.
OP where do you live?
