Any suggestions? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer bardacuda December 8, 2012 1:19:14 PM Stick with Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, or Antec for the PSU. 550W sounds about right. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a good air cooler and easy on the wallet. Really that 450W is probably good enough but you don't want to be too low on the PSU. Better safe than sorry. Even a quality 500W should do if budget is tight. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedHelp With My $600 Gaming PC Build?
