Budget psu for 6850

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/336340-33-mainstream-budget

as in the link.(if any one confused in that thread)

my uncle's rig specs are

1)I5-2500k
2)Asus P8h67 m-pro
3)Corsair vengence 8gb(4x2)
4)Asus sata dvdrw 2(2 drives)
5)Western digital caviar black 1tb
6)Gpu 6850 or gtx 560ti(to be bought)
7)PSU ????

my question is does Corsair gs 800w can handle that rig nicely, he is not a gamer, that rig for his digital work. does he really need 800w or he can adjust with gs 600w too. I found gs 800w is best in its price point in these reviews. Budget for psu is $60 to $150 usd.
prices in newegg are

  1. Yes the Corsair GS 600W is fine.
    A quality 500W would do the job no problem.
    Seasonic 520W S12II-520 W

  2. Any good quality 500w+ unit would be fine :)

    Recommended brands include: Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic, XFX.

    First, the 560 Ti has it all over the 6850, especially of ya get one of the factory overclocked jobs with the robust VRM and better coolers.....they can generally be had e same price generally as the stock models.

    Guru3D uses the following games in their test suite, COD-MW, Bad Company 2, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, Dawn of Discovery, Crysis Warhead. Total fps (summing fps in each game @ 1920 x 1200) for the various options in parenthesis (single card / SL or CF) are tabulated below along with their cost in dollars per frame single card - CF or SLI:

    $ 155.00 6850 (371/634) $ 0.42 - $ 0.49
    $ 215.00 560 Ti - 900 Mhz (495/862) $ 0.43 - $ 0.50

    As you can see, the 6850, costs ya 42 cents per frame as a single card, penny less than the 560....but that's 124 fps more or 33% faster ..... jumps to 36 % faster in SLI.....but uncle not going there with his MoBo.

    Ya can't judge PSU's by brand name..... 1st, 95% of the brands you know are built by someone else and while one product line might be great, another might be cruddy..... The Corsair HX850 gets 10.0 rating for example from jonnyguru but the HX1050 gets a more pedestrian 8.5

    I'd suggest the XFX Core edition 650 ..... that's a 9.5 performance rated PSU by jonnyguru available for a mere $60 (after $30 MIR) ..... The GS600 is $25 more, TX650 $35 more.

  4. thank you all for a quick reply, in our town only cooler master or corsair, are availble, and newegg doesn't ship it, the xfx 650w is heart pumping unit, but it is priced around $180 from ebay, and gs 800 is around $120 from a local store.
