  1. change psu to corsair ax550 at least i would personally try to get at least an ax650
  2. Hey thanx for the reply, you think that 500 wouldn't be enough what about Corsair - Builder CX600 V2 - 600 Watt http://komplett.ie/Komplett/product/power_supplies/20085754/corsair_builder_cx600_v2_600_watt/details.aspx
  3. the cx600 looks decent, 40 amps on a single 12v rail is sufficient
  4. ^no,a 500w will do fine with a single card-
    http://www.geforce.com/Hardware/GPUs/geforce-gtx-560/specifications
    they say 450w,500w is enough.xfx 550w is highly recommended.
  5. Thank you guys for the info, personnaly i would just get 1000w like i have on my machine but unfortinetly the price range is so different am going to stick with the 500w because its the best one for the money any other choice is over 30 euros extra. which is not alot but the machine is not for me so i can really take charge of the money he wants to spend. Would you think the specs are good enough for a gaming mahine in general?
  6. specs are good for a mid-high gaming rig.SLi in future for high end performance.
  7. Yeah i think so too, it should last for atleast 2 years :) SLi in future definetly with a new psu lol :) Thank you all for your time and opinion much appreciate it.
