    GTX 660
    CPU TBD either:
    fx 8320 or 8350
    or
    i5 3470
  7. 3470 if ur purely gaming. or 8350 if u need to do video encoding and multi-tasking like a mad scientist.
  8. 350 watts seems a bit low fir an 8350 gtx 660 combo , no ? I'd be aiming 500+ watts , especially if you OC

  12. id suggest this instead. and leaves headroom for upgrades.

    would be the less expensive id recommand. unless u can find it cheaper.
  13. I agree with iceclock , he suggested a very good psu , the 430 watt you linked to would do , but just makes it , best to have a bit of headroom , you chose components that draw a lot of juice best if you have a bit of a safety margin , 550 watts will give you that .
  14. +1 to jerry xD

  16. your trying to buy junk, im recommanding quality. use that junk at ur own risk. if u dont want the proper recommandations.
  17. let me ask you a question, would u feed your kid baby food or toxic waste. if you chose bad powersupply ud feed him waste, ;0
  18. Don't cheap out on the psu, if you want a cheap psu but decent get the corsair CX500 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027&Tpk=corsair%20cx500
    or the antec neo eco 520 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030
    It will do, just stay away from coolmax psus at all costs.
  19. Best answer
    Get the corsair CX series, it's the only decent psus in there, the rest is junk, like i said, if you want a decent cheap psu get the corsair CX500, but the CX600 has now a 13$ promo code so it's worth getting the CX600, since it's cheaper than the CX500 with the promo code.
