Recommended power supply for my computer Tags: Power Supplies Computers Components Last response: December 4, 2012 11:12 AM in Components Share saibabaa December 4, 2012 8:10:54 AM Hi guys, Here is my (soon-to-be) rig: Mobo = ASUS M5A97 CPU = AMD Phenom X4 955 Black Edition VGA = Nvidia Geforce GTX 550 Ti RAM = 2 x 2gb Corsair DDR3 Value 4GB PC10600 all that's left is the PSU, which is i'm confused on i've already calculated it on the PSU calculator, and it turns out i only need maximum 400 wattage. should i take 500w or should i go straight to the 600w so that i don't have to buy again later? which brand should i take? i got around $75 for budget. and it have to be the modular one, cause i like when its tidier Thanks.
