More about what wattage need
  1. Also i forgot the MOBO - Gigabyte Z68AP-D3
  2. A good 500-600W PSU is more than enough...I'm running something very similar on a Seasonic M12II 520W.
  3. i am buying this pc from a site called dino pc and they only allwo you to have a 500w or a 650w. will 650w be good?
  4. This one should be fine:

    The maker is more important than the wattage, as long as you are providing enough power.

    Hi :)

    It depends on PSU make....

    A 500w Corsair as an example, will put out a LOT more power than an unbranded 650....

    The way to look at it is if its an unbranded PSU....divide the wattage by 2.... therefore an unbranded 650 is really a 325w :(

    All the best Brett :)
  6. Okay i will just get get the 650W Corsair TX V2 :)
