New PSU Help
Apr 2, 2012, 10:59 PM
I'm buying a PSU for my new build, but cannot decide which one to get.
I have up to $80 to spend.
It will be powering:
i5-2500k @ 4.4Ghz
GTX 560 2gb
Micro ATX mobo
2x4gb sticks DDR3 RAM
1tb Caviar Black HDD
NZXT Phantom fan controller
I want a PSU that will last me through several builds.
Would be great if it was modular.
Thanks in advance.
