Hey, I want to build a gaming PC and I've been doing some research and the components I got now are i5-3470, EVGA GTX 660 and 4GB DDR3 RAM (I'll be adding more later). I have a 3TB HDD, might put in an SSD sometime. The place I'm buying it from quoted me a 450W Thermaltake PSU, but that seems a little weak...
Any other power supplies that anyone could recommend? I'm happy to spend a little more on a PSU, in order to protect my other components.
Hi - The shop didn't try to sell you higher wattage than you need.
realhardtech sggests a quality 430w unit for a sys with one gtx 660.
However, Thermaltake has several 'bad' PSU models out there, and I
suggest you get a quality unit in the 450 - 550w range.
Quality brands: Seasonic, PC P&Cooling, XFX, Rosewill Capstone series,
most Cosair's, most Antecs, Enermax, & a few others. If you
post your PSU budget I'll recommend some for you to choose from.
