Hi, I have an AMD Athlon64 x2 3600+ with an ASUS motherboard (M2NPV-VM) and it currently has a GIGABYTE Odin 470 power supply which has been discontinued. I need to replace the power supply and wanted to know what would be a suitable replacement power supply?

Thanks,

Daniel

Maybe corsair gs600? it 600w and pretty good for the price and you won't have to worry about upgrading it if you choose to buy new parts.

For that particular system you can take any crappy generic PSU, but if you think about the future, you should really take a solid PSU from a well known manufacturer like OCZ, Corsair, antec etc. You can easily take the one that I suggested (GS600) and you won't have to think about buying a new PSU when you want to upgrade your system.

Hi - looks to be an older system (>5years) and doesn't have any
real power hungry components in it. A decent quality
350w PSU would be more than sufficient. I'll recommend
a couple in the 430 - 500w range as there are some good specials
running now:

Hi again Daniel - Is this power supply still working?
Just want to be sure you are not replacing it
just because it's discontinued.
