Help with PSU

Ok,ok ive done some guides... but just to be sure... :pt1cable:

my system is going to be:

fx 8150 bulldozer cpu (maybe OC at 3.9)

M5A78L-M USB 3.0

2 sticks of 4gb vengence DDR3

4 hdd satas

5 120mm fans (3 with leds)

multicard reader with fans controller and lcd display

(maybe) 5.15 hdd fan

I'll use the onboard graphics card for at 3 mouths or so... but when i ll get the graphics card i want the better that the CPU can handle (at max 250 pounds)(without upgranding the PSU)

ive calculated, and i think ill be fine with a corsair 600 or 650w... and ive seen the "Winpower 850W" that is used as a 600w, but its like 2 times cheaper ;) ...
what do you think?

big thanks

  1. stick with either of the corsairs you mentioned
  2. What GPU and do you intend on SLI/CF? Do you intend on OCing your CPU/GPU? If yes, then how high? What is your budget? A good quality 500W PSU will handle almost any single GPU system that you can buy, even with mild-moderate OCing.

    Stay away from Winpower...they're cheap for a reason.
  3. right, taking the corsair 650...
    thanks

    my budget is 60 £, i will be oc the cpu from 3.6 to 3.9ghz, the gpu will be a single one and i will not oc it...
    so a corsair 500w can handle everything? because from some psu calculators the recomended is a 550-600w...(with the gpu)
    i didint buy the 650 yet)
  5. Easily...That level of an OC will barely increase your power consumption. Great option and is under your budget:
