    Default What PSU?

    Ok, I'm the last thing I'm struggling to decide on now is a power supply for the machine I'm about to buy.

    Appreciate your thoughts:

    The system it is for is as follows:

    Motherboard: Gigabyte 965P-DS3 = $148
    CPU: Intel E6600 = $305
    RAM: 2x 1gig Kingston = $125
    ROM: Pioneer SATA DVD = $50
    HDD: 1x Seagate 320gig + 1 x 500gig Seagate = $105/$195
    GFX: Sapphire X1950Pro ATI = $203
    PSU: ????
    MON: BenQ 222W = $379
    External Enclosure: $40

    Ideally I would like to get it all from MSY which really only leaves me with the Coolermaster series.

    Can anyone give me feedback on these, either the extreme, real power or igreen.

    Also, what amount of wattage do you think would be suffice, i was looking around teh 550w.

    Appreciate any feedback

    I should also note that I want to keep it under $150 and would prefer modular if possible, but doesn't look like this will happen.

    Also, I have no plans to over clock, but it might be on the cards later on down the track, at this stage spending more on a PSU to OC isn't a priority.

    I don't know what prices are like across th epond, but the PSU I just reviewed is 600 watts and modular with a reasonable price tag (at least as far as US pricing is concerned). I haven't worked much with Cooler Master power supplies so can't say anything about them one way or another.

    Pretty sure I'm going to go w/ a Corsair HX-520 ATX: $139 now. Modular and looks to be a decent quality and under budget.

    thanks for your feedback though

    Corsair makes a very solid power supply.
