Need help choosing a PSU
Oct 8, 2011, 4:03 AM
Hey guys I need some help choosing a PSU. I have everything I want to build for my new PC I just do not have a PSU picked out at the moment, I am not a fan of MIR either, only my graphics card has a MIR. Here's my system specs.
cpu:Intel i5 2500k
gpu:Sapphire Radeon 6870
hdd:Seagate 1 TB 7200 RPM
ram:G.Skill 2x4 8 Gig 1333
mobo:MSI P67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
That's about all you need to know for what kind of PSU I need correct? I'd like something that will last me for future upgrades.

Corsair CX600w. Your build can be easily powered by a 500w corsair but considering future upgrades it would best to get a 600w quality psu.

You could get the Antec Earthwatts 600w if you're not sure it has 4eggs at newegg though. Most of the time, it's pretty much on your luck lol.

I would go with the antec probably right away, however, I don't have a spare power cable for it. Newegg doesn't seem to sale any..?
