Hi,

I have 5 segate HDs (3 1TB and 2 500gb) all sata, my proccessor is AMD FX-6100, my board is ASUS Sabertooth 990FX with 8 gig of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series. My video card is PowerColor AX6870 1GBD5-2DH Radeon HD 6870 and I have one dvd/cd burner drive.

This is all going into a coolermaster storm scout case... what is the best PSU to get to cover all this? I would love to keep it under 200 if possible.

Thanks

Get the Shellshocker deal at newegg today 12/12/2011. Kingwin 1000W PSU for $100. It's a good company..you can check the review at HARDOCP (one of the most honest websites in my opinion).

Don't fall prey to the whole 80+ non-sense. HARDOCP had an article explaining that too. Basically, a company came cherry pick one of the good PSU's from the production line and send it for 80+ review to get the stamp...this doesn't mean every other unit performs the same. Honest companies don't cheat but a lot..and I mean a lot of them do but sending their best piece so they can stamp all the units.

Oh and even if a company doesn't cheat...the extra $40-$50 you pay for 80+ gold and so forth cannot be recovered unless you run your PC on max load for 24/7 x 5-10yrs..its some outrageous timeframe...the entire thing is fraud.

For a system using a single reference clocked Radeon HD 6870 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 28 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin PCI-Express supplementary power connectors.

The extra hard disk drives will have an operating +12V current draw of 2 Amps so you will need to add to the 28 Amps recommended to handle this.

Get a reputable brand 600 Watt or greater power supply.
