I recently built my first own gaming PC. It was great for first 3 months, until it makes random reboots in middle of the games. ( games like SC2, diablo 3 or lol).. I searched many forums and I found out it might be my PSU problem. Since, i am a Computer Noob, i need a help to find how much watt usage for my computer.. Since, i am a foreigner, i have limited English skills. Here is my SPEC...
AMD FX-4100 quade core processor 3.62 GHz - CPU
ASUS M5A 78L-M LX Plus - Mobo
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity (100315L )
G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB DDR3 1600 ( 12800) - 2 sticks of 4GB Ram..
If it's possible can you set my spec into that website..? Sorry for being noob..
Hi - really isn't necessary, your cx500 psu is normally enough to power
a rig with a hd 6850gpu. Maybe you go a bad one.
750w is overkill, won't do any harm, but will cost you more money than you need to pay.
Look for a quality 550-600w if you're concerned with a 500 being
Stay with brands such as Seasonic, Antec, XFX, Corsair,
what you have right now should be fine, but if i was ever to purchase a psu, it would never be the corsair cx series. they are low quality compared to other units from xfx that are made by seasonic and perform much better
