Hey i bought recently a new motherboard a new cpu and a Ram Memory
now my graphics card broke 2 weeks ago (Club 3D HD4350)
i am planning to buy a 7770 or a gtx 650 atleast.
my current powersupply delivers 350watt

i know when i buy a new Graphics card i need a better powersupply
now i dont know what to get for the same price

Techsolo TP-600 (600Watt ATX)
Techsolo STP-650 (650Watt ATX)
Techsolo TP-730 (730Watt ATX)
MS-Tech MS-N750-VAL (750Watt ATX)
Corsair VS Series VS350 (350Watt ATX)

now i dont know whice one to get !

all the techsolo are littel cheaper than the corsair vs350.
but what should i take

a high Watts Psu like the MS Tech MS N750 750watt
or does the corsair does the same job ?

Motherboard : Asrock N68 VS3 UCC
CPU : AMD X4 640
Ram : 4GB DDR3 1600MHz
1 dvd drive
1 20 in 1 card reader

I would go with (assuming your buying in The Netherlands):

Antec VP450w power supply

It comes with 1 x 6 Pin PCI-e power supply connectors (used for GPU's). It should be able to handle up to AMD 7850 or nVidia 660. It is also has 80 Plus Efficiency rating too! It should have 30A on the combined 12v rails (used for GPU power mainly), so you should be covered quite well.

Tom's used the PSU listed above in their SBM this month, so you can see how well it performed for them.

its right im living i nthe netherlands

im buying things from azerty.nl
i have choice between those
Techsolo TP-600 (600Watt ATX)
Techsolo STP-650 (650Watt ATX)
Techsolo TP-730 (730Watt ATX)
MS-Tech MS-N750-VAL (750Watt ATX)
Corsair VS Series VS350 (350Watt ATX)

whice one is best
i told to a friend and he told take the higher watt one because the corsair 350watt is the lowest but its low but does i prestate better ?

This is what I'd buy on the lower end of you needs:

Corsair Builder Series CX430 - Power supply (internal)

It has plenty of power (about the same as the one I previously listed), but it is 80 PLUS Bronze Certified (more efficient than previous one).

Not all PSU's are equal. I'd stick with Antec/Corsair/Seasonic/PCP&C PSU's if you want to have a better chance of getting a better quality PSU.

oke but for example

im a girl and dont know about computers (example!)
and my boy friend has a graphic card thats has a minimum of 550watts reccomended.
and i buy for him a 750watt powersupply wont that be good enough ?

if i had to choose i think i will go for the corsair 350watt.
but !

this is btw the end of the example xD

will he corsar vs350 do the same as the ms tech 750 ?
or ill the corsair even prestate better ?

Hi - 1st you need to tell us which graphics card you are purch a,
psu to support your sys power needs with,
then we can correctly advise you if corsair 350w is enough,
2nd - plz stay with the known quality brands,
I beleive lunyone already listed most of them.

Tom

generally 350w is not enough for any mid range or above gpu

correct - +12v amps is the most important factor

That ms-tech is not a known quality brand, I'd stay away from it.

Hi - 550w is not accurate, their specs I looked up for 2 of their 7770 models
require 450w. Those figures are inflated to allow for crap psu's that
can't deliver their rated power.

The CX 430 will power your system with no overclocking.
