Afternoon! First-time poster here with a quick question about choosing a PSU for my new build. If I've missed anything out, don't crucify me just yet - I'm still learning! Right, so I suppose I should start with the basics. I've decided I want to build a new gaming/multimedia PC, as my current rig isn't really cutting it for me any more (AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+, 2gb DDR2 800, broken X1900GT 256mb). It was my first build, and at sixteen years of age I didn't have the money to buy top-end parts so had to settle with *shudder* B-grade.. I know, I know, bad idea. Squealing motherboard caps remind me of that every day.. Anyway. This is the planned spec for my new PC: Mobo: Asus M4A79XTD EVO CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 945 RAM: Corsair XMS3 TwinX 4GB (2x2GB) ODD: Scavenged from my old PC HDD: 1 x 500gb 7200rpm, 1 x 160gb 7200rpm (both scavenged), possibly 1 x 1tb 7200rpm GPU: nVidia 9800GT Green 1gb (Got it for free, will be upgrading to an ATI 5850 soon after build ) PSU: ??? (See below) Cooling: Stock for now, moving to Coolermaster Hyper 212+ soon enough Case: Coolermaster CM690 Dominator II Advance Sound good so far? I've spent months going over reviews to find exactly what parts I would want. The only thing I haven't set in stone as yet is the PSU. I was originally going to pick up a Coolermaster Silent Pro Modular 700W, however I've heard on the grapevine that they're not as good as certain others. I won't be going SLI/CF in this rig's lifetime, so I won't need anything with huge amounts of PCI-E connectors (also, my mobo doesn't support 16x/16x CF if I recall correctly). I think I'd probably be safest with a 700w+ PSU, unless I'm completely wrong in guessing how much power I'll need. Modular'd be nice, however it's not essential, and my budget for the PSU would probably be about £90-100. I don't suppose ye technical wizards/wizardesses (is that the right word?) could give me some advice in what PSU would suit my system best? Thanks in advance!
