Which of these PSU's will run my rig better?
Oct 2, 2011, 1:09 AM
I am building a rig soon with these specs:
AMD Phenom II x2 3.2 GHz 555 (Going to try to unlock cores)
Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB
Western Digital 500 GB 7200 RPM
EVGA GeForce GTX 550Ti
2x MASSCOOL 80mm Fans
I did have a case coming with a PSU, but it turns out the PSU included is really crappy, so I want to get a different one and buy the version of the case w/o a PSU.
I've been looking at all of these,
So which one of these is best? If there is a good one you know up to $60, then please tell me.
I'm also not overclocking anything other than unlocking the cores on my CPU.

Sorry, I meant XFX Radeon 6850, I copied from my old list by accident.

Found a great deal for a Corsair PS @ $25 w/ rebate. 430watts should be more than enough for long term use for the hardware you're currently using.

I would't recommend either of those.
Try this for $60.
Also, you could make better use of that budget for the rest of the system. Take a look at my sig.
