  1. Hello Jamifo308;

    That's for a gaming build? That HD 6570 isn't much of a gaming GPU.
    A decent 400W PSU should be plenty.

    What's the reason behind getting such a weak graphics card?
  2. For a system using a single Radeon HD 6570 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 400 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 20 Amps or greater.

    Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important factor.
  3. Downgrade to an fx-8120 and get yourself a higher end gpu.
  4. ^+1 At least buy a HD 6770..
  5. Maybe he's building a HTPC system?
    Or has a 1024x768 resolution monitor.
  6. funding stoped me from getting a better video card i wanted a PowerColor ATI Radeon HD7970 3GB Graphic Video Card 925Mhz DVI HDMI Display Port but to much for me.

    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115077

    This saves you $130 over the mobo/CPU you chose and gives better gaming performance. More accurately...comparable performance when you're GPU-limited (anything under an HD 6950 will be GPU limited).

    $130 + $65 (cost of an HD 6570) = $195
    This gives you enough money to get an HD 6870 for $170 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948

    plus another $25 to add to your PSU budget to get a good quality 500W PSU; great deal on the Corsair Builder 500W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027
  8. i bought the HD 6570 for $100 off ebay from PCMEAL and got free postage .....
