Hi there!

I want to build my own PC (1st time :) ) but I dont know what PSU I should get.
These will be my other components:

Processor: AMD x4 965 BE
Motherboard: AsRock 970 extreme3 AM3+
Videocard: MSI R7870 TwinFrozer 2GD5/OC
Ram: Corsair 8GB-1600 kit
Case: Zalman Z9 Plus
Optical drive LG GH24NS70
Internal Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB

What Power Supply will fit in the best.
I will be overclocking the CPU and GPU, just so you know that :p .

Also what brand and type please not just the voltage.

+1 for the XFX Core Edition. It's a quality PSU for budget minded people. It's not modular however if you need that sort of thing. It comes with a 5 year warranty, top quality components and is made by Seasonic. Nuff said really :) 

550w or 650w is what you'll want.

This is my personal pick, what I will be putting in my system once I gather the money to build it. EVGA SuperNOVA 650w: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Plenty of amperage for your system, and a 10 year warranty.


as nice as that is its pretty over priced for the quality

Azery.nl? That is a Dutch site! Are you Dutch? At least I am :D .

Do you think 550w is enough for overclocking the x4 965 BE and also the HD 7870? Thank you for your reply anyway!


nope not dutch but your name gave it away and i understand dutch since my home laguage is similar to dutch and that 550 is enough to push a 965 and 7870 to the max and enough for even a 7970 and any new cpu on the market
