    Hey, Need some help with a PSU for the following specs: (not my machine)

    CPU: E7400 [2.8Ghz 45nm] Overclocked to around 3.2Ghz+
    RAM: 4GB RAM 2 x 2GB DDR2 800Mhz
    MoB: MSI P7N-SLI 7380
    GPU: 9800GT
    HDD: 2 x 250GB Sata 7,200

    A few things to note before suggesting... The owner MAY upgrade to the following specs:

    CPU: Q6600 Overclocked 3.2Ghz
    GPU: Second 9800GT for SLI.

    What PSU would you guys suggest for no more then £60 (including PnP) for both the specs above?

    Thanks!

    The Corsair TX 650W is probably the best you'll get for £60, and easily capable of handling two GPUs and an overclocked quad core.

    Hmm, they all sound really good. The Corsair TX 650W sounds the sweetest to me. Any objections? Any other suggestions?

    I had the corsair 650W, upgraded to 750W for my new rig. It's still in my old rig at the moment though, haven't had any problems yet.

    Just one warning with the corsairs, I have the 950W TX model and none of the TX series have modular cables. It'll be less of a problem with the 650W version but wire management is a nightmare in my PC

    What are the specs of your old rig? Very important

    intel core 2 quad
    3 GB RAM
    2x7500rpm HDD
    Sapphire radeon HD 4870 1GB


    I have an x4 overclocked now at 3.8GHz and a second 4870 so i though it would be best to have some extra juice.

    You could easily run that on a 650W PSU.
    The two 4870s will maybe draw 300W peak, the phenom (I assume phenom?) should draw about 150W peak, and all other components in the system will maybe draw 30-45W at most.

    The rig in my signature, when fully overclocked to 4.2Ghz and 950/1200 on the graphics card, only draws 480W, and at stock clocks draws under 300, running furmark and intel burn test simultaneously.

    Yeah, but it's nice to have something future proof, plus it means i still have a complete rig to sell.
