Final Build Specs - Need PSU

Hello,

Its been a long time since I started planning this build. I've been going back and forward with sites, video cards, motherboards, cases, everything.
I finally found a site that seems ok, and have found the parts I wanted.

Here is the build, I'm not sure what PSU I need though.



Intel Core i3 2120
In stock $125.00 $125.00

Sapphire Radeon HD7770 1GB GHZ Edition OC
In stock $149.00 $149.00

Antec Three Hundred Case
In stock $62.00 $62.00

Gigabyte GA-H61MA-D3V Motherboard

Corsair CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
In stock $55.00 $55.00

BitFenix Spectre 120mm Black Tinted Blue LED Fan x 3

TOTAL: $573.50 plus $46 postage.

I really need to shave the cost, without sacrificing performance preferably. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to help!

  1. I think the Antec VP-450 would fit the bill here
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371045
    well rated by HardwareSecrets here
    http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Antec-VP450-Power-Supply-Review/1487/11
    or for a little more headroom perhaps the LEPA B550-SA

    I could not find a review of the 550W version but the 650W version gets a good review at HardwareSecrets

    hope it helps some
  2. Here is a review for the Enermax NAXN 550 (ENP550AWT), which is the same as the Lepa B550-SA:

  3. A 500W PSU is more than enough for this build.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371035
    Or a modular one
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093
    And this is the best you can go with, $60 after MIR
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703035

    No need to go more cheaper than this, these are the most reliable PSUs.
  4. Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply $59.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030#top SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply $69.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094#top
  5. or Seasonic 520W MKII
  6. I linked the Seasonic 520W MKII i my post, but i figured out the the OP posted another post yesterday for revising the build and he has a special website to order his stuff from.
  7. Sorry guys, my build has changed a bit. I'm new to forums and don't know how to delete threads.
