Hi

 

Almost ready to order new desktop from PCSpecialist

 

i5 , gtx 960 SSC , ssd  , ATX  low to mid system.  (335watts max)

 

Stumped on PSU though as choice is :

 

 

Corsair

 

VS450  £35

CS650  £69

RM850  £109

 

VS and even CS have some bad reviews RM450 would be ideal (but option not available) with class product but £109 for RM850 for PSU !!

 

Any suggestions which to go for would be great

 

Cheers Kev :)

This semi modular Thermaltake should be a good one for you.

Sodicka,

 

Go with this one:

 

 
Power Supply: XFX 650W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply  (£62.98 @ Amazon UK) 
Total: £62.98
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
Generated by PCPartPicker 2015-07-20 18:24 BST+0100
 
Antec, Seasonic and XFX are all good power supply units. Other brands are inferior in terms of assembly.

Thanks Buzz... I put that power supply in a computer I built over 2 years ago and it is still running strong FYI it is an 80+ Gold certified Toughpower line.

 

This may be a good bit of info for you

 

I wouldn't necessarily say "other brands are inferior" but I would say that off name brands are probably inferior.  Thermaltake is not an off name brand.

Thanks for replies guys !! 

 

Only prob is I can only choose from the three corsair ones listed by the system builder/supplier:

 

Corsair

 

VS450  £35

CS650  £69

RM850  £109

 

I have found another supplier that offers RM550 for a better price ,but need to check them out.

 

Cheers Kev  :cool:

Hello sodicka320, i highly recommend EVGA G2 650W PSU which is cost $100 on Amazon US, and got a good rating review on Johnyguru review site( popular PSU review site), also recommend it over Corsair low tier PSUs such as your for instance. For me personally, i recommend you read a reviews on the internet and then decides on your own instead of asking someone to choose which one, because asking them which one doesn't help you out a lot when it comes to multiple questions, pros, and cons. Here is the review site of the PSU i recommend, http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=429.

G'day Sodicka, if those three Corsair power supply are the only option you can select from, then the CS650 would be the best option as it can provide more then enough power without going overboard and is gold efficiency. Although, if you can get the RM550 from the other supplier, then that would be the best choice.
