i need a psu but im not sure what to get
4gb corsair vengence 1600mhz
500gb sata hdd
gigabyte h77 d3h motherboard
looking at 7850 and maybe crossfire in the future
any help would be appreciated
Hi - well in terms of raw watts/amps you can get buy with a decent 400w PSU.
However, you need to consider the pci-e power connectors your next PSU has.
For example, one of the 7850's(mfg recommends 500w psu) I looked at needed
2 - 6pin connectors, and you want to be able to CF?SLI (650w needed) in the
future meaning you need a PSU with 4 pci-e connectors and you generally need
to get a 650w & up unit for that.
two for you to consider:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207014http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088
both of these contain 4 pci-e connectors you will need for CF/SLI
