Default Re: Question on a prebuilt PC

Another question: If I were to go with the 7600GT without upgrading the PSU, how much would it suffer as a result?

In your case, the result would be no video


that means you wouldn't see anything.

Haha that sounds like one of those things I don't want happening. It looks like I'll probably be ordering another PSU here. Any suggestions? On Newegg the prices range and, according to customer reviews, so does the quality.

decent psu about $45 for 450w

i would go with a good brand , like coolmax,antec,evermax.
usually chep makes are lower quality and die after about a year

EDIT HERES A COOLMAX FOR $45 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159053
i think that should do ya

Get a nice 550W+, just to be safe. I recommend a Seasonic!

When it comes to PSU you get what you payfor.

But personally i have been using rosewills PSU 550 Watt 120MM fan.

RP550 is the model

anyway i have had it over a Year and a Half and never had one problem with it.

Its about $60
