Hello guys,

I bought the Exp GDc Beast V.8.4D it's an external graphic card dock and my graphic card is GeForce® GTX 960 Super JetStream (2048MB GDDR5)

Graphics Card Power: 120 W
Minimum Recommended System Power: 400W
Supplementary Power Connectors: 6-pin X1

My question is which power supply do I need ?
And if you guys have any suggestions about low budget but good products :)

Thank you all !!

What does the E-GPU have to do with a PSU? I thought that externals have their own power, no?

 

Edit: And secondly, don't make 2 posts in different areas... It confuses us more.

No normally when you buy the Exp Gdc dock you get the Dell power supply which has been reported for having many issues with the dock so what I mean is you can see in this photo people use normal pc PSu for it

That clears things up for me. OK ;)

 

I don't like Apevia. I'd rather go for a Corsair or Seasonic.

Yes but my question is which requirements do I need for this power supply should it be 500-Watt/ 600/750 etc ..
I mean I don't know it goes well with my graphic card
..
Graphics Card Power: 120 W
Minimum Recommended System Power: 400W
Supplementary Power Connectors: 6-pin X1

I know the minimum but can I take the 600 watt
This is all my question about

PSU requirements...should be considered on the system requirements in sum...not just an isolated internal or peripheral device.

 

My experience is that even PSUs which are sneered at...will do the job capably on a system with multiple hard drives and optical drives...if you doubt that, then you probably need to consider the PSUs generally found in OEM systems...which typically do the job.

 

Preference, not necessity, is what drives most of us in determining system components...IMO.

 

Please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

This Seasonic does have a $20. rebate (for what it's worth)

Apevia did have a terrible reputation at one time for it's quality

As long as you get a 600-700W PSU, you should be fine. Unless you are doing SLI or XFire, you need higher wattage.

I would look into the PSU tier list:

 

 

https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/

 

Wattage matters yes but never ever buy a cheap power supply.

Its one thing to have a power supply with high wattage its another thing to have it with good build quality.

Always look into that list even if its for a external part.

The power supply is the most critical part of a PC yet no one invests in them as they see it as just a part to cheap out on.

Granted yes graphics cards are expensive, memory is expensive, motherboards and processors can be expensive.

But all that high priced equipment will mean nothing with a crap power supply.
