    Where do you see that it's not?

    From the ASRock site.

    Anyway, everything looks ok, I just don't like the thought of using the PSU that comes with that case (Thermaltake PSU's aren't very good, and I'm thinking the one that comes with that case is lower quality than even a normal TT PSU). It has enough wattage (supposedly), but I still wouldn't really trust it.

    As far as I know, yes.
  3. It is this processor

    AMD FX-4170 Processor - Quad Core, 4MB L2 Cache, 8MB L3 Cache, 4.20GHz (4.30GHz Max Turbo), Socket AM3+, 125W, Fan, Unlocked, Retail box, 3 year warranty.

    also what is the matter with the thermal take power supply?

    does everything else look good

    Just lower quality than some brands. The lower end TT's tend to not last very long, and I would say that the one that comes with that case is almost definitely a low end model.

    It would help to know exactly WHICH model it is, but I have doubts that it's any good. The 7770 isn't exactly a power hungry card though, so it's not like you'll really be pushing it to its limits. The problem is that it may only provide something like 350-400W on the 12V rail and not 500W (I would almost guarantee it).

    But yes, everything else looks ok to me.
  5. OK, I just checked, and it's a dual rail unit with 14A on rail 1 and 15A on rail 2, for a wattage of 168W available from rail 1 and 180W available from rail 2.

    Those don't add together for the total, so it's actually only capable of even less than the 348W combined (probably closer to 320W or a bit less). Not good from a supposedly 500W unit.

    With that said, I think it'll do with a 7770, but I just wouldn't trust it.
  6. What case would you recomend getting with which power supply

    The case is fine actually, I don't have a problem with it, I just don't recommend using any PSU that comes with any case. They're almost always lower quality than they should be.

    Anyway, this PSU will be plenty and is of much better quality. SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  8. would i be able to use the power supply

    They didn't really say anything about the PSU in that review other than they thought it was nice that the case came with one. They just like the case in general, not the PSU.

    Trust me, that is NOT a very good PSU.

    It'll be fine for a back up PSU, should you ever need it, but that's about it.
  12. Yes, the PSU's that come as freebies, are lower quality.
  13. If u are paying $59 for that one, pay $69 and get great case for the money : )

    Read the review.

  21. wanted to give you both best answer bye =)
  22. Luckily, your GPU doesn't need all that much power, so it will work.

    But keep in mind, those PSU's are not for gaming really, they are more for casual use.
  23. Good luck!
