  • Recommend me a PSU?

    Need a new, cheap, reliable PSU very soon.

    I plan to upgrade to a FX 6350 and a HD 7850 in the next 12 months, might do some overclocking too

    What PSU should i get? Been looking at the CX600M from Corsair but i wonder if there is anything cheaper with the same features?


    Thanks

    That's probably the cheapest you'll get. Don't skimp on a PSU though. You'll regret it.

    The PSU you've selected should be fine at stock but don't expect to overclock it immensely high.

      I've learned not to skimp on a power supply, hence the dead EZCOOL and luckily i still have a PC.

      Borrowing my mates Cooler Master 500W PSU for now.

      Guess i'll just save up for the CX600M, thanks dude

        A good psu is probably the most important part.

        A good psu will save you money in the long run as its probably the only part u won't have to upgrade for a good 5 years.

        Corsair make good psus. I'd try to bump up to a tx if your budget allows.

          +1, A TX 650w would be ideal.

            I would take a look at the XFX psu's. All are made by Seasonic, argueably the best OEM for psu's.

              I had a look at the XFX PSU's but the modular ones are a bit pricey.
              The non-mod 550W is a bargain though and should power the above fine.

                XFX PSU's are good, but their customer support is bad. There is also no option for Advanced RMA's etc.

                  Okay, changed things abit, getting a EVGA GTX660 instead... Will that be around the same power consumption as the 7850?

                  What about the Cooler Master GX series?

                    Similar power consumption.
                    GX series aren't great tbh, similar to the Corsair CX... decent enough but still on the budget end.

                      Oh right :/ it will do though? Same with the CX series? I'm on a tight budget haha

                      Just wish there was something excellent for around 40-50

                        53 gets you the XFX 550W. That's what I'd buy tbh even if the CX600 comes in at 51.

                        Imo the XFX is a much better quality unit, and you'll have RMA through Aria for the first year anyway

                        Those are the 2 best choices in my opinion around the 50 mark.

                        You could "get away" with the CX500M which is modular, but it'll give you less wiggle room for overclocking.

                          I've found the XFX 550W for 41.99 delivered.
                          However, this is not with Aria, so you won't have one-year's RMA with Aria unfortunately.

                            I've found Aria's RMA to be poor anyway, and on my first experience but oh well...

                            Nice price!

                            I'll look into it Cheers!

                              I can assure you, it was probably a one-off.
                              Aria's RMA is actually pretty swift, (I am new to the forums, however not to the company).
