draws 378W. Even running FurMark, a program AMD have described as "a power virus", the system as a whole tops out at 393W. Even running FurMark and overclocked, it tops out at 408W. A 550W/600W PSU would be fine, I should think.
EDIT: beaten to it by Arthur as I did silly things like "dealt with work responsibilities"
Well it will be nice to have the option to expand later in any case without getting a new PSU
JonnyGuru likes it, so you're good to go. As far as PSU reviews go, his word is holy.
Great +12V regulation, great ripple suppression, low price and decent looks all come together to make this a great unit. Sure, the marketing on the box insults the intelligence of even the lowest common denominator and the box itself fails to completely protect the PSU within, and the unit isn't modular, but all and all it is a great unit for the money and certainly worth a recommendation.
- Very stable +12V rail
- Very good ripple suppression
- 80 Plus Bronze efficiency confirmed
- Great price

Yeh I go by his reviews for PSUs as well
Righty, here is my complete list for everything coming in at £440 (well pennies under) inc Prime Delivery
SSD Hard Drive Holder £5.53
Samsung SSD 250GB £104.90
Asus GTX 770 Nvidia GeForce £242.90
Zalman ZM-M300 Optical Gaming Mouse £6.34 - Replaces my old one like for like
XFX P1-850S-NLB9 PRO850W £79.99
Good lord that mouse is ugly
Should keep you going for a good long time that lot, though. More or less a new build, at least, it'll feel like it
might be an ugly mouse but its what I am used too. Should mean less deaths on BF4 as well because I can rebind my knife and grenade keys!
Also considering current hardware, will be a nice boost to my machine and what I have been waiting for. Will easily last around 5 years (well I hope) before a new upgrade is wanted (or needed)
Cyborg R.A.T 5
As for the gear Neph, that should keep you running for a while. I get my new card on Friday, can't wait
OK that is an awful mouse! haha. What card are you getting?
Nice Would have gotten that if I didn't get the PSU and the SSD.
Decided to get a Corsair 750w PSU instead. Want a modular one instead! Plus it will save me about £12
Order has been placed, everything but the PSU should arrive tomorrow, the PSU will arrive on Friday or Monday
