Hello community, can i have some help?
I'm buying a GTX550ti video card for my system.
mobo: Asus M4A77TD
cpu: Athlon x2 250 3.0ghz
Only one HDD, 2gb DDR3 RAM, a dvd recorder and two fans.
CPU is likely to be OC'ed sometime at 3.5-3.6 ghz and considering a bigger cpu cooler like Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus.

For the PSU i am between XFX 550 and Corsair TX650 v2, with the 2nd one considering more.. as i've read that the XFX has a tricky 12v regulation under big load. But i dont know, will this system put that much load?

Thanks in advance.
John.

go with the 650 cuz f u choosed the 550 your psu will be nearly @ %90-95 load which will make your psu lifespan way much shorter

The 550w would be enough for SLI

The 550 would be plenty but I'd be happier with the corsair.

LOL

A 350w power supply would be more than enough for this setup. Please refrain from posting if you don't know what your talking about.

Both of them are made by SEasonic.

XFX is more than enough to even power a gtx670 in your system.

Thank you for your replies every one, really...
Just to share my way of thinking, since we are talking about the power supply here, "more than enough" is better than just "enough"
so.. both the XFX and Corsair are more than enough for the particular system.. maybe i will go with the first and bonus, spend less.
