Upgrading from orion 585
Oct 21, 2012, 11:47 PM
these are my current specs:
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) Build 7600
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (3400.0 MHz)
Motherboard: ASUS M3A78 (AMD 770/870 (RX780) + SP5100 (SB700))
Memory: 4 GBytes (Dual-Channel)
Hard Drive: WDC WD5000AAKX-001CA0 (476,940 MBytes (500 GB))
Optical Drive: UBYHKXW W5EFCPU (BD-ROM)
Display Adapter: AMD Radeon HD 7750
and all of it is being powered by an HEC Orion XPOWER585:
recently it started making much more noise than normal, and after a bit of googling i came across the PSU tier list which listed HEC Orion as being among the worst. what should i replace it with?
PS. i would want to upgrade the motherboard and all right now, but i don't have the money.

XFX Core 550W, 80+ Bronze Certified, AND made by Seasonic (arguably the BEST power supply maker).
Probably the best PSU for the ~$50-60 range.
