  1. It depends on its wattage.
  2. No

    Even if you have to work the corner, find another 30$, it's not worth it

    all PSUs under 30$ are going to be complete horse *** and will eventually die and take your expensive components with it

    on that note, how important are your components to you and what are you key components? (CPU/GPU, other expensive ***)
  3. Please god to get either

    This is the cheapest I'd recommend which is currently $36 after rebate. Although if you look at the price history graph, it will go down to $25 regularly. Horse poop they are not. This is good quality. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cmpsu430cxv2

    I can't believe you would even post diablotec or hec. Niether of those can even supply their rated power. At least go with a antec vp 350 or 450 which is $23 and $31 respectively. http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=62871&vpn=VP350&manufacture=Antec

  5. Corsair is good quality, get anything psu from them, just dont get a cheap psu

    btw i meant "please god dont get either", i'm pretty tired.
  6. If you do not need more than than 350W, then it is possible to get a decent PSU for around $30

    Antec Basiq BP350 350W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371003

    Rosewill RV350 350W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182006
  7. i did want to get the antec vp450, but they are out of stock! It was only $30! this was my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qftH and i don't know how much power i need.
  8. What are your specs please list them i want to see if your trying to kill your rig is why i ask
  9. Never mind i found them
  10. How much wattage do i need with my rig? The 350 watt antec ones sound like an awesome deal!
  11. But it's $45! I forgot to mention that i can't use rebate. however i can take my price up to $35 if that makes you feel better.
  12. Wait for VP450.
  13. I would save up some more money, and get a reliable PSU, such as the Corsairs or Antecs posted. An extra $10 now can save you hundreds down the road.
  14. It has nothing to do with making me feel better if you buy a shitty psu the chances of killing your hardware are high i agree with samuelspark that is as cheap as it gets so i would suggest you save more money.

    +1 OP it's not a joke you need to take it seriously!There is no well i only have such and such amount i will spend if that's the case i suggest you not bother with computers.
  16. When you build a system never skimp on the psu its the most important part of the system. As mentioned previously if you get a psu that can't handle the load it will fail and will take other parts with it.
  17. Get this RAM:

    DDR3 1866 has no speed improvement over DDR3 1600 with Sandy Bridge.

    Use the extra money for a better PSU. Preferably the Antec VP450.

    Sorry if i made i sound worse then i wanted it to sound :( I guess i will just wait for the VP450 or take my graphics card down a bit and get the CX430. I seriously do apologize for what i made it sound like.
  19. And by the way what is the wattage on my system?

  21. The Corsair V2 Builder is NOT a good PSU, especially if you plan to stress it. It was made by CWT, not Seasonic, using some inferior Samxon capacitors from a line known to fail early. This information comes from HardwareSecrets then onto the badcaps.org forums. Get the Antec VP-450 (built by FSP, another good OEM) or save up for the Delta-built Earthwatts.
