Is this 550w PSU enough for this build/ Is this a good build? Tags: Build OCZ Systems Last response: February 22, 2012 1:03 AM in Systems Share enc643 February 21, 2012 8:29:15 PM The PSU is at the top of the picture (OCZ Fatal1ty) This is my first build ever, and I have had a friend who is into building them help me (He's probably spent over $3000 on his...) I on the other hand, don't need those specs, and had around a $600 budget. This build after rebates brings me to $587, which I am happy with. Now to the question.. Will that OCZ Fatal1ty PSU give me enough watts for my needs? The reason I chose it it because I chose an AMD processor, and because I get a $25 rebate with that PSU. What do you think of my final build? Any suggestions/feedback is welcome. Thanks!

Ive been using it for almost 2 years now and i have a similar build to yours | Report abuse enc643 February 21, 2012 9:04:58 PM That's awesome and reassuring! Is it a quiet PSU? | Report abuse tcfraz February 22, 2012 1:03:59 AM I cant hear it over my case fans...
