The system only draws the amount you need. 450w of a branded name may be all you ever need, though some high end video cards require more juice and will specify that in the specifications. | Report abuse Reply to o1die cstiles96 November 13, 2012 3:30:10 PM So i can go lower or what ? im trying to keep it cheap | Report abuse Reply to cstiles96 blacknemesist November 13, 2012 3:49:24 PM Without a GPU you can drop it even more but future upgrades may be compromised because of lack of power.I'd stay with what you choose or go for a xfx 550w for 9$ more. | Report abuse Reply to blacknemesist Related ressources PSU upgrade - Forum GTX 680 with 700W OCZ PSU - Forum +12 V with 30 A = Good PSU ? - Forum Need advice on a new PSU , relatively urgent - Forum GPU for 375W PSU ? - Forum Ask the community Publish cstiles96 November 13, 2012 3:55:13 PM thanks | Report abuse Reply to cstiles96 FinneousPJ Power supply Expert November 13, 2012 3:56:09 PM You really don't want a PSU cheaper than that, they'll be rubbish.
