    PSU recomendations

    Hi,

    After my PSU decided it wants to die, and taking the fuse in the plug out with it :/ I now need a new supply.

    I'm running a pretty old spec.
    Phenom II 955
    5770
    4gb ram
    2 hdd's

    So I don't need a ton of power. Although I am considering a new build in the near future, probably an 2500k , 560ti so a power supply that could handle that would be welcome.

    I've looked through various guides but many suggested psu's aren't in stock anywhere and I kinda need one soon. Obviously with my spec my budget isn't amazing but I'd also prefer modular but its not a dealbreaker.

    Thanks.

    Corsair CX600 would do for even your new build you want, I would buy a HX 650 if it were me though, and a HX 850 if you ever wanted to SLI (Even thought the 650 would do SLI, i like to be on the safe side)

    Cheers.

    At £95 on scan tho for the hx650 I think I'll trend towards the cx600.

    *Update - I found this - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/600w-...12v-quiet-fan- .

    I've heard good things about silverstone and this model has some good reviews out there. Fully modular too which makes braiding and installing easy peasy. Any views?

    Re: PSU recomendations

    Heck a decent 500w psu should be enough for a 2500k and gtx560ti http://www.scan.co.uk/products/500w-...iet-fan-atx-v2
    The silverstone units are decent, not generally amazing but decent. does depend on model as some are better than others.

    My recommendation, personally have that (bought for £55 or £60 last month, have a look on ebuyer it was on offer as well, i got mine from scan). Solid stuff, cant hear it over anything, i have a water cooling setup and run everything low as possible so that should give you a bit on a context, i thought it was noticeable while in the case (i.e close to it) but seriously quiet when im not putting my ear to it, only hear it when i turn my pc off (it is on for 5-10 seconds after shut down).

    Good 5 year warranty aswell! Rated as a solid psu, almost hits a solid silver rating so id say better than the corsair stuff... corsair is great but so expensive now adays!.

    Re: PSU recomendations

    Avoid the new CX range!! They use lower cost capacitors and sleeve bearing fans.

    I would look at the PSUs in the £550 build:

    http://forums.hexus.net/pc-hardware/...ml#post2150586

    BTW,what motherboard does the OP have ATM? The Phenom II X4 955BE is still good enough to run many games at playable framerates even at stock clockspeeds. If you can overclock the CPU a bit then it would last a bit longer too.

    TBH,I would consider upgrading the graphics card first when the need arises.
