Hey guys, I'm New here
Do you know what PSU Theremaltake retails with their Cases. I'm after a Commander MS-I. In the description it says it comes with a 500 watt PSU. I'm Making a Budget PC and this is the best i can afford. Will it be able to power my system:
CPU - Intel Core i3 2120
MOBO - Asus P8H61 LE V3
RAM - Gskill 4GB 1333MHz
HDD - Segate Barracuda 7200RPM
ODD - LG Black DVD RW
GPU - Gigabyte GTX560
thermaltake power supplies are trash, unless it's the high end 850w or 100w ones. Go for a Corsair, OCZ, cooler master, or seasonic, not anything else. OCZ I believe offers the cheapest for high quality power supplies and seasonic is the most expensive.
It states that the efficiency is 'more than 65%', these days anything less than 80% is unacceptable.
It states that the operating temperature is 10-25C.
The 500W number in it's model name is derived from a peak output of 500W, which is fairly misleading as it's continuous rating is 400W.
It has a combined +12V rail amperage of 23A (or 276W) which is terrible for a 400W PSU let alone a 500W unit.
Finally GTX 560s require two 6pin PCIe connectors and the Litepower 500W W0316 only has one.
I think you need to either spend more than $100 on just the case and PSU, or you need to buy a good PSU and just buy a cheap case.
