PSU questions.

Hello! This PSU is on sale on NewEgg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371031 ($70, from $100)

Two questions about it. :)
1. Is there a less expensive PSU that outputs at least 600W? It should be reliable and last a while.
2. Will this PSU fit in my case? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-352-009

This is a budget build, so that's why I'm interested in a lower-priced PSU. The PSU I chose originally won't keep up my graphics card - it only outputs 450W. Thanks in advance!

  1. Eh, I found this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028&name=Power-Supplies
    Same price, but bronze certification so it's a bit more efficient energy wise.

    here's this one, but it's not 600 watts: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182199&name=Power-Supplies

    otherwise, there are a lot of lower priced psus... But I wouldn't touch some of those with a 10 foot pole x.x

    I don't know if it will fit,

    Don't just look at the wattage the PSU mfg claim, check the amps on the 12v rail(s). Antec is a quality PSU mfg so that PSU is more than sufficient for any single GPU computer.

    Hi Ghost - Don't know the OEM for that NeoEco unit, but it has been recommended frequently, and Antec has a good rep
    in PSU's. It should fit your case which is 6.9"wide and the PSU is 5.9"wide.

  4. What are the specs of your pc? That would make it easier to gauge your real needs. I always go with Seasonic, they are the best psu manufacturer. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096&name=Power-Supplies That one is ten bucks more but well worth it. A psu is not something you should skimp on as far as quality goes.

    Review for the Neo Eco 620C:
    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cases/display/psu-600w-850w_5.html#sect0

    This is cheaper before the rebates/promo codes on the Neo Eco 620C, but more expensive after.
    NZXT Hale82 650W ($60 @ Newegg)
    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-power-supply-hale82650m
    Based on the Seasonic M12II Bronze 650W (SS-650AM). It is better because it is modular, more efficient and has independent voltage regulation. However it will be noisier, due to the idle speed of it's fan being 1000RPM vs ~500RPM on the Neo Eco/M12II/S12II Bronze units.

    The Fractal Design Core 1000 will accept ATX PSUs up to 180mm deep.
