Help with Power Suply for configuration

Hi guys.
I'm planing to buy a new system with these configurations:
Mb: ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance (s1155, P67, PCI-Ex16)
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K
Cooler: Hyper 212 Plus or XIGMATEK LOKI SD963(any sugestions maybe)
Ram: 2 x HYNIX 4GB 1600MHz
Gpu: GIGABYTE GTX660 2048Mb GDDR5 192-bit, 1033-1098/6008MHz
Case: COOLERMASTER Storm Enforce ATX no PSU 2 coolers included

Help me please to choose a budget Power Suply for(<100$) . I don't have a very big choice I'm from Moldova and this http://translate.google.com/translate?langpair=ru%7Cen&u=http://www.hard.rozetka.com.ua/ru/products/procategory/270/index.html are all brands and models I can find.

Thank you
If any other sugestions about config. Welcome!

    Hi - right at your limit - but an oustanding unit - I'll look for some
    for less money, but this is a nice unit if you can spend the money:

  3. thats just 80+regular , ive stated a fsp aurum with 80+gold just as good as ur but with higher efficiency, i talt about that one also but id prefer to suggest something with higher energy efficiency.

    but that choice is good as well toy :)

    Whatever dOrel prefers - the HT is actually bronze, it delivers 642w of +12v
    vs 540w of +12v for the fsp. His choice more +12v power or better
    efficiency.
    Not a lot of decent alternatives 'in stock' at that site.
  5. yeah well its in a remote country, what u expect :p

    but i agree both are very good up to op to choose now.
  6. its fine but doesnt leave room for stronger components tho dell.
  7. Sure it does, those specs are only going to max out at around 210 watts DC
  8. thats incorrect.

    the cpu utilizes at max 120 when not overclocked when overclocked a bit higher,

    videocard is 140W

    + the rest of the system unshur of but its more than u pretend it is.

    also i recommand going with atis or nvidias minimum power requirement just to be safe.

    also i recommand going with atis or nvidias minimum power requirement just to be safe.

    May well be, it's based off the power consumption numbers of the 3570k and 660Ti PEOC that I'm currently testing, so it's probably a little high

    I don't play in the land of make believe
  10. no thats just the powerconsumption of a regular gtx 660.

    GTX 660 Ti GTX 660

    TDP 150W 140W


    Manufacturing Process TSMC 28nm TSMC 28nm TSMC 28nm TSMC 28nm
  11. Here's an idea
    Get a similarly equipped system and a Killawatt meter and learn a little about actual power consumption
  12. i go with recommanded power consumption, most users dont use a killa-watt meter, and like to go with recommanded power consumption not readings off a meter,

    each to there own my friend.

    Correct, I don't care about manufacturers reccomendations
    But do not imply that my suggestions are incorrect when you have no idea other than those manufacturers reccomendations
  14. well to put it simply i go with recommanded things, i dont really care to use a killa-watt meter tbh.

    ive always gone with recommand specs and works great, and your right i dont know much about killa-watt meters,

    ive never used them or feel the need too, thanks for the recommandation.

    and i was referring to recommanded power requirement numbers when i said u where incorrect, like u said a killa-watt meter prob more accurate.

    cheers.
  15. On and on and on
    Do you know the reccomendation for a GTX660 ?
  16. it says 140watts thermal usage for the gtx 660, according to u its under that.
  17. Thx a lot guys, I wish a have a larger variety of PSU but I am limited.

    iceclock if you'll have to choose between FSP Aurum 600 (AU-600)(90$) and Seasonic SS-600ET-F3 600W(87$), which one will you get?
  19. the seasonic or the aurum is just as good, but id say first pick seasonic :)

    Yes 140 watts is the TDP of the card, question was " Do you know the reccomendation ? "
    Nvidia says minimum 450w with a 6 pin connector ( thier reccomendations are based on a 130 watt I7-930 )
    http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-660/specifications
    So does Gigabyte
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125443

    TPU tested half a dozen or so , none made to the TDP under Furmark load.

    the cpu utilizes at max 120 when not overclocked when overclocked a bit higher

    The 3570K has a 77 watt TDP, ain't gonna max at 120 with no overclocking, isn't going to hit the TDP at all
    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/core-i7-3770k-i5-3570k_8.html
    109 watts maxed, with a GTX580 idling on the board
    Let's just call it 100 watts after the psu efficiency conversion
    Now a GTX580 idles at 33 watts, http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_580/25.html let's subtract that
    67 watts with the cpu maxed
    Let's add the idle power consumption of a 660, http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_660_Twin_Frozr_III/25.html +7
    ~74 watts DC with the cpu maxed and an idle video card
    Hmm, what happens when we add the 140 watt TDP of a GTX660 with the 67 watts that a basic I5-3570K system draws under full cpu load
    Whoa, around 214 watts with the cpu and gpu maxed
    :hello:
  21. im talking about maximum utilizations, not minimum. :)
  22. iceclock said:
    im talking about maximum utilizations, not minimum. :)

    What do you think LinX and Furmark do to the cpu and gpu ?
    Here's a hint, they run them at loads that you wouldn't normally see, umm, maximum utilization I think you would call it, at least I and anyone else who knows what they do would
  23. i already agreed with u dell, on the point with a killa-watt meter would read a closer and more accurate reading, but like i said i go with recommanded power requirements and what the manufacturer says it will utilises at a maximum at load.

    Hi again dOrel - sorry I didn't find a lot of quality choices in stock at
    your site.

    As far as the discourse occurring on how much power you really need,
    I look at the realhardtech PSU requirement table assembled by their
    staff with the best of their knowledge. For tot system watts needed
    with your GPU it suggests 600w. We know that # to be on the high
    side, but it is a good reference. jonnyguru, the top psu review site
    actually suggests having more watts than you need is a good thing.

    The quality selections on your site actually in stock were very slim.

    from jonnyguru:

    Power Supply FAQs
    Power Supply Basics:

    Is there such a thing as "too much power"?

    Generally, no. A power supply only puts out as much power as needed by the system's components. In some cases, an 800W power supply may actually use less power from the wall than a 500W power supply, depending on the efficiency of the units. Often times, buying an "oversized" PSU is a good choice due to it's ability to perform even under higher temperatures, a quieter fan because the unit is delivering a lower percentage of it's total capability and considerable system upgradability without having to worry about having enough power when upgrading a graphics card, adding a graphics card for SLI or additional hard drives.

    Anyway, I think there were a couple links posted above that will serve you nicely
    for your PSU need.

    Huh ?
    http://realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm

    Maybe it's my eye's, that list shows a 430 watt reccomendation for a single GTX660
    600 watts for 660 SLi

    Dell - you are correct. I had a discussion with someone that had
    a gtx 580, and got fixated on it. Yes, a 660 needs 430w.
