Which PSU is best for my desktop?
Jun 20, 2012, 7:37 AM
I'm buying a new desktop and this is my configuration:
CPU: i3 - 2120
Mobo: Intel DH67CL
RAM: 2 X 4gb Gskill ripjawsX
GPU: ATI HD6850 DDR5 1GB DDR5 (can upgrade to 2 gb in future)
Fans: 1 processor, 1 rear fan and 1 top fan(120mm), i side fan (200 mm) and may be 2 front fans
Cabinet: Vulcam Gaming mATX Chasis
1 Dvd writer
2 Sata HDD (160 gb and 2 TB)
Now i have 2 questions:
1. Does this machine really needs that much fans as i'm installing a mATX board on an NZXT Vulcan Gaming mATX chassis (1 top and 1 rear fan comes along with the cabinet).
2. Which PSU is best for my configuration?

Installing a front intake fan will improve airflow inside your case. Do consider installing one.
Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W
SeaSonic S12II 520
The CX500V2 is also a good choice
