    Cheeky wee PSU question

    Hey folks, just after some recommendations on PSU's
    Its to power a Q6600, 2900XT, 4GiB RAM, a couple of HDD's and a SATA DVD-RW.
    Budget is sub-£100.
    Case is a TJ07.
    Any suggestions?

    TIA
    Steve

    Re: Cheeky wee PSU question

    I've got a Corsair HX520 for a similar system *points at my system,*

    I expect mine will draw less than yours, but the Corsair should still be up to it

    Re: Cheeky wee PSU question

    Yeah, that's the one No. 72 recommended - mine is the less powerful version of that.

    Infiniti. Slight overkill and slightly over budget, but a great PSU with a shedload of top quality connectors.

    Re: Cheeky wee PSU question

    see the HX620? will it come with the plugs for the 2900XT already, or does it need an adaptor cable?

    Re: Cheeky wee PSU question

    From memory, my 520 came with a 6+2 adapter, or two - I can't remember, I'll have a check when I get home. If it has 2, then you can run the required 6+8pin connectors (I think it needs that).

    I think the newest revision has the right connectors, but the old ones definitely dont.

    Silverstone SST-ST85ZF 850W:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/produ...oductID=652449

    It's on Today Only all week at £93.99. http://www.scan.co.uk/todayonly/

    Totally overkill for your needs but you won't get a better PSU at that price or anywhere near it. Way better value than the Corsair
