    Re: psu help plz

    I think enough people have advised you to get a good branded PSU, at least 500W such as the OCZ, Tagan, Enermax, Corsair, Seasonic. The OCT is only £32 compared your unbranded choice at £27

    Most PSUs have their max efficiency at between 50% to 70% of maximum load so it does help to have a little in reserve.

    Are you goign to keep posting till someone says...okay buy a cheapo unbranded 250W PSU?

    Re: psu help plz

    hmm yea probs gonna get the ocz

    but one more thing (u guys/girls are probs gettin reli annoyed at me)

    wud i be able to use my existing 350watt psu (i reli doubt it outputs tht at best) and buy tht thermaltake 250w power express psu (tht one tht only powers the gpus for u peeps tht dnt know) ? im guessin it seperates the load from the gpus completely so thers no strain on the main psu. will tht be fine for me?

    thanx
    hmmm

    It is not worth spending 25 to 30 quid on the VGA PSU as you can plenty of decent PSUs for a few pounds more!!

    For instance Scan have a 700W FSP700-80GLN PSU for nearly half price(£37.59) this weekend only on special offer:

    Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

    Link to PSU at full price:

    A review of the PSU is here:

    X-bit labs - ATX Power Supply Units Roundup: 9 Powerful Models Tested (page 6)

    They test the slightly more expensive Epsilon FX700-GLN version which is the same as the FSP700-80GLN but with a blue case!!
