    Hi - realhardtech suggests a quality 450w unit for a sys with a
    single 7850. What is your budget $ for a PSU? Plz post your
    budget and location(US?)

    Tom
  2. 450watt+ and look for brands like Seasonic, Corsair, Antec or XFX to name few.

    Bro are you sure It will not blow up my PC seeing the specifications.....because I have a tight budget and This is my first Gaming Rig. Which one is the best from your opinion.



    Yes - I'm sure these are OK. I listed only known 'good quality' brands,
    Atec, Corsair, & Seasonic.

    Tom

    They are all good - I think the 3rd link, the Seasonic 520
    gives you plenty of quality power and is under 4k inr
    and has a 5yr warranty

    No need to be scared - Seasonic is one of the best PSU makers,
    the 520 I linked is a good unit, & 87% efficient, and a 5 yr warranty.
    The PSU pulls only the amount of current from the wall that your
    PC components require at any given point in time.
    So, if you PC is only using 300w then that's all the PSU will deliver.
