I just recently purchased Cyberpower Gamer Ultra 2138 with the following specs:

AMD FX-Series FX-8120(3.1GHz)
8GB DDR3
1TB HDD Capacity
AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB
AMD 760G

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=83-229-...


Should I get 700W PSU to replace XtremeGear 700W that it came with?
According to XtremeOutvision PSU Calculator, I would need about 400W. So should I get a name brand 500W PSU or 600W to be safe?

I have never build a computer before nor replace parts before. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. I don't have a budget, but I heard a $80PSU replacement should be enough?

Hi - Yes, 400w is enough to run that sys. The 6670 doesn't use a lot of power.
Yes, a quality PSU in the 450 - 550w range would be more than sufficient and
provide headroom.
