I might try my 400W PS but I really don't think it will work.
I if not I might go for this Super Flower 550W since its only €4 more expensive than the 450W.
Does anyone know how much P&P is from that hardwareversand site? I cant seem to find it in English.
P&P is a flat rate of €30 no matter how large the order is, so you might have to look elsewhere.
Not all Super Flower models are the same. The one you linked there is a very dodgy PSU. You want to be picking the Super Flower Amazon models:
Ok thanks for the advice guys. I'm a bit of a noob at this stuff even though I am studying the A+.
€30 P&P is a bit out of my price range anyhow.
There is this 650W PS on pixmania for just €31. Do ye think it would be ok? There must be a reason it is so cheap right?
Where'd you see that about the CX430 ? From what I've seen of it in reviews (JG is the one the I remember best) Its a solid little unit
i stand corrected. it must be another 430W PSU im thinking of sorry.
Yeah, I just saw a 5850 in PC World, Limerick for €309 !
The price has again increased, now it costs 119,90 euro, must be selling well then
Got one of these for 113.90 off Pix!
Really smooth gaming at 1920 x 1080. Delighted....great value!
Cheeky of them. I got mine before this increase. Still waiting on other components though.
Incidentally, I still have this from around 3 years ago, t'was very expensive at the time:
336401 OCZ StealthXStream Powersupply ATX/EPS,
600W, 120mm Fan, 4/8pin CPU, 20/24pin
No power inputs or the like have been added since then have they? This rig is a 5850 and an X4 Phenom. 1 HD, 4 gb RAM...
Just wanted to make sure she's still ok to use?
Previously I had a Socket 775 Core 2 Quad 6600 and a pretty hefty 8800. Top of the line at the time.
I'd rather not buy a new PSU!
EDIT: It also got fantastic reviews back then.
ahh the good old 8800 , I had an e6600 & 8800gt back then.
That psu will be more than enough, an overclocked i7 with the hd 5850 takes 319 watts in this review.
i have a hd 5850 and i want to crossfire can i use any 5850 to do it
Emailed Sapphire about this as a load of people were wondering about it and yes, any 5850 will work with any other 5850
