  1. For a non overclocking budget gaming rig its decent.

    Though I don't understand why you got a 1GB 7850, its a $20 difference that will have a big impact in VRAM intensive games.
    Would have gotten a more reputable PSU. Thermaltake isn't bad, but there are better.
  2. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?108088-Official-XS-Power-Supply-Ranking-Phase-I

    Thermaltake XT are tier 2 on this site which is what i based it off of

    and should i get a 2gb?
  3. Depends on the resolution.
  4. The greater than 600W units yes, This is also backed up by Newegg list.

    Get the 2GB. Otherwise in some games (BF3, Metro especially) you will run out of VRAM and it will kill your FPS as the card has to start swapping textures back to the HDD.
  5. Then based of my build ( with a 2gb instead of 1gb) whats a good power supply around 60 bucks that would support my build thats reliable
  6. Anyother ones, i really dislike rebates and on strict budget
  7. Well, its "around" $60 even before rebates.

    Corsair Builder Series 600W, 80+ Bronze. $65 ($20 rebate)
  8. How does this look now:

  9. Change the PSU to the one I found and its all good.
  10. Thats the XFX Core Edition . . .
  11. isnt that the first one you recommended?
  12. . . . . .. ?
  13. Either one of them would do.
  14. ok thank you for your advice
