Bottom Line: 380W 400Wgood but a 450W+ recommended. Get an 850+W if ou want to run the real juicer hardware

you dont want a cheap one either, get one with a high 12V rail, lots of Amps is good.

Just a 400W to 450W should do

Only servers need them, and they cost 300 or $550 EACH. Don't bother with a 850W PSU, they don't know what their talking about

Just make sure you choose one with enough voltage on each rail, i.e. at least 20A on the 12V
