I'm very new to computer building (both are firsts) and would like to inquire about the 2 builds below. I'm ordering mostly from directcanada and newegg canada.
I do not plan to overclock any of them. Mouse/keyboard, monitors, speakers, OS won't be necessary.
Build A: budget 600 +/-50 CAD for casual gaming (diablo 3 at most, med setting is tolerated) and office work/homework:
Coolermaster Elite Power 460W ATX Power Supply 12V V2.3 20/24PIN 120MM Fan
oh god, don't make the same mistake I did when I bought that psu... It's acutally a 420w psu with 32amps. It's good for low power consumption cards. The highest card you could run on that psu is a hd 6770. I'm currently running a hd 5770, but I'd suggest to you a much higher quality psu. I'd suggest a decent 550watt power supply or a high quality 500watt psu.
You can tell precisely how much power your PC requires in both watts and 12v rail amps. without any guessing from the link below. You can also objectively determine the performance and quality of the PSUs you are considering for your PC. Then you will be able to make an informed buying decision without guessing or sometimes conflicting subjective opinions.
