Get the answer eyeage February 6, 2013 2:14:46 AM I'd get this (actually, it's due to arrive any day now): Seasonic The only complaint seems to be short cables... so if you're building in a small case (mid tower), like me, it's the p/v winner imo. Bigger case (full tower), well.. probably not so great. m 0 l KAIJER February 6, 2013 2:15:08 AM yeah go with 600w . it would be be better m 0 l eyeage February 6, 2013 2:21:16 AM Also... I'd opt for the Cosair 200r if you can find it or the Cooler Master 431 at that pricepoint. m 0 l eyeage February 6, 2013 2:22:23 AM KAIJER said:yeah go with 600w . it would be be better Based on what? At 80+ gold the 550w PSU I linked for him will be more than adequate. You would have to pay a bit more for a 600w that was better (and even then it wouldn't be required). m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedWhat PSU should I use?
