Hey guys!In a few days i'm going to build a new budget gaming rig and i need your help!

The parts are the following

1)MSI Socket AM3+ 970A-G46
2)AMD Phenom II x4 965
3)4gigabytes of Kingston HyperX
5)Ati radeon HD 7850(SAPPHIRE)

My guestion is if my current PSU can handle this config without problems due to restricted budget!
My PSU----APEVIA 500W See-Through Aluminum Power Supply
(http://www.apevia.com/productsInfo.asp?KEY=ATX-AS500W-B...)


P.S. I know i need a better in the future but i m going to stick with it for about 4-6 months.

Thanks in advance! :hello:

The beat answer I can give you is maybe. There's no review of it,
and the brand rep for Apevia in PSU's is not good. If it can come close to it's
publ specs, you'll be ok. Give it a try.

Maybe i am going to sell it and buy a Corsai psu,because i dont want to put in risk my new machine!

Thanks for the answer...

corsair makes a great psu (imo) there are cheap and reliable routes as well, the reviews on that psu seem pretty shotty, they either work great and fine or not at all, for the price, it's worth a shot (imo)...or just save your money and go with a more reputable psu off the bat
