    Scan Today Only:

    Akasa Zen Case - Black Silent Cool Midi-ATX Computing case w/2 silent 12cm fans w/o PSU + 550W EZcool Silent pPFC Power Supply £38.72

    Given my post the other day about building a gaming PC on a tight budget, will this power supply be adequate for overclocking or would I be better off getting the Akasa case and Corsair 520 separately (as was recommended)?

    Don't get an EZcool for anything gameing/overclocking related.

    Just tring to think of a reason to get an EZcool . . . not haveing much luck.

    For building a gameing pc on a tight budget there are some cheaper PSUs you could probably get away with than the corsiar HX 520w, but that PSU is very good value for money.

    Thanks for the heads up. Will probably stick with the Corsair, read good reviews of it and at least there should be some headroom for expansion.
