Well, this are my sistem specs:
Phenom II X4 955 BE w/ Hyper 212+
Kingston HyperX DDR3 4 Gb 1333 Mhz
Samsung spinpoint 1TB 7200 rpm
Cooler Master 430 Elite
I want to upgrade some of this sistem. The PSU could be a problem, it's very noisy and the cables are very short specially the +12V 4 Pin it doesn't reach the top of the motherboard so i need sugetions about a new PSU. Quiet, reliable, long cables (4+4 Pin and 24 Pin). Something not to expensive, i don't have too much budget.
Here in my country, the PSU are very expensive, im talking about Thermaltake TR2 500 W at 80 Dollars aprox, everything is expensive, videocards, Cases, PSU, motherboards. Its a pain to build a nice rig.
Currently im running onboard graphics, sucks for gaming. So i don't need too much power. What videocard will botleneck this sistem?, i want to know to get the right videocard in the future.
Other thing I really don't like my case, i was thinking about the NZXT Tempest 410 or the H2, but i only was looking opinions about these, and a PSU with long cables, so the 4+4 Pin won't be a problem in these cases.
If you had linked me to a store I would have picked a PSU for you, but I'll just recommend one. For nice long cables and a reliable quiet PSU look at the Corsair Enthusiast Series. Something like the TX550
CoolerMaster is also not a good brand of power supplies.
Newegg.com only ships to the US and newegg.ca to Canada. Amazon may be available where you are.
Mmm I'm running out of options, Cooler Master and Thermaltake PSU are one of the "Best" PSU here in my city, of course some products of Corsair and Seasonic but they're really expensive, like 2000 3000 Pesos MXN. But i'll try to find corsair CX series.
I have a question about my motherboard ASUS M4A785T-M, it can handle mid range videocards like 6850 or 6670 from asus and gigabyte? Or do i need to improve the motherboard? I'm not a hardcore gamer, but i want to play games smoothly in mid of maybe high settings. Or what videocard would you recommend, based on my MB and processor.
Thanks again, and apologize me for my english Ha
This is the online store where i bought some hardware, it's in spanish, also the prices are in Mexican Pesos, but as you can see,
i'm very limited with the branding and prices http://www.pcel.com/
They are for the most part not as good as the brands I listed above except CWT, SuperFlower and Kingwin. SuperFlower actually makes all of Kingwin's power supplies and CWT makes some excellent models for Corsair. Some Rosewills and the NZXT Hale are pretty good as well.
