    Hi - that sys will draw less than 320w with the hd5830, so a quality 450w unit
    is enough. I'll recommend a couple in that range & up to 550w in a few min.

  3. I'm using the antec hgc 620 on the same MB with a 1090t , 160gb ssd , 2 1 tb hard drives and a 6970 gigabyte vid card with 16 gb g skill sniper ram . pSU RUNS COOL AND SILENT
  4. Okay thanks!
  5. The hcg looks nice but I'm limited to buying from newegg only and unfortunately they are sold out.
  6. Here's what you're looking at... total wattage draw ~300W. PSU's operate most efficently in the 30%-70% draw range so a quality 460W-600W PSU should fit your needs. Here are a few options - by price
    1) Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-450
    2) FSP Group RAIDER 450W
    3) SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze
    4) CORSAIR CX500M 500W Modular
    5) SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W
    as an idea

    +1 that should work great
  9. I think I will go for the Seasonic s12II, Surely can't go wrong with one of those.
  10. Thank you all for the help!
