Need help with choosing a psu

Hey im going to buy this build http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7544709&csid=_61
with some parts like the case and memory changed.


here are two notable things I noticed about the psu, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1375741

1. It has no Active PFC protection.
2. It's not 80Plus certified (in fact, it has only 72% efficiency according to Kingwin)

So im not sure if I should still buy it for if someone has an idea for a replacement, post it

  1. Yes that PSU is crap and your rig will run on a 450watt quality PSU. Here is a quality XFX 550watt http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=59615&vpn=P1550SXXB9&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1033
  2. I know they are more expensive, but I prefer 80+ rated PSs. The one that Rolli59 rec'd is good and less expensive.

    Stick with Antec, Corsair, Silverstream, Seasonic, XFX or higher end Rosewill. Although I have friends that love Kingwin, I have never had much faith in them.
