    Which power supply 80+ priced 60€ are better than Cooler Master GX 550W?
    It's a 80+ bronze.

    I remember you it (the CM) has 1 12V line with 44A.
    I will never do Sli or Crossfire.

    Shop: atelco.de
    (it's in front of home, so I prefer to spend something more)

    Specifications:
    case Cooler Master Scout
    psu Cooler Master 550GX => this will probably be changed
    cooler CM Hyper 212+
    RAM G.Skill RipJaws-X PC3-12800U CL9
    CPU i5 2400
    motherboard GIGABYTE GA-P67A-D3-B3
    monitor ASUS VE228H

    VGA: for NOW nVidia GeForce 8800GT
    It will be changed with incoming AMD 7870, nVidia 660 or superior (7950 or 670).
    Probably it won't ever run nVidia top's VGA (x80), but any 200W one yes.

    What are your system specs? So we can see what would be best for your rig.

    Ocz stealthXstream 2, 600watt, 80+, 4x18amp rails. I have one, got very good reviews, and delivered over 700watts with ease. Cost me £60 brand new

    The good PSUs are all more than €60 in the shop you mentioned:
    Antec High Current Gamer (520 or 620W)
    XFX PRO650W Core Edition
    Thermaltake Toughpower XT (575 or 675W)


    I don't know much about the be quiet! PSUs however, and I'm not familiar with the Super Flower PSUs they have (most of the reviews I've read are the ones that are 80PLUS Gold/Platinum).

    The Thermaltake PSUs named after cities over there are made by HEC, so I guess they won't be any much different from the Cougar PSUs...

    In that case the CX600 V2 looks, OK, for the rest you really just have to google the reviews

    There aren't available; between these, is there anyone decent?
    And what about their ripple?
    Thermaltake Berlin 630W
    Seasonic S12II-430 Bronze, 430 Watt (but only 30A on 12V rail)
    Cougar SE 400 Watt (80+ Silver)
    Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2, 600 Watt (the only one mentioned to be present)

    The Seasonic is good, but the Wattage may be insufficient for you. Best to go Corsair unless you decide to have a higher budget

    1.5% for +5v, 1.4 for +12v and 2.4% for 3.3v ...

    anyway you think it doesn't seems to be a good PSU.. That's not what jonnyguru said.. And I didn't said it was the best choice. People must know what they can buy that aren't cheap ;)





    Are they the only one you can get? if so, I would go with Corsair CX.
    n-ster says thanks.

    Its good enough for me, it got good reviews in every review i read, so it will be fine for my system. I'm sure there are psu's people will say are better than this that get worse results than mine.

    My bad, idk what I saw for the 12V :rolleyes: Yes that PSU is fine if the price is right., it is just outside of my expectations, which means it is pretty good/very good lol But that PSU isn't there @ atelco.de

    The CX is a low-end CWT (GPA/DSA), as well as the Berlin. But the Berlin is a specific design. Cougar is... well, HEC garbage. lol. As pointed before, the S12 is the strongest choice out of all. It's the design that's used in PCP&C Silencer units. You can get it since newer GPU's are going to be significantly more efficient. At 22nm, I'd expect the power of a 570 (200W) at 150W or less, which the SeaSonic can handle. If it can handle a 460 (easy - 150W peak), it'll handle a 22nm GPU as well.

    Also, your system is stock and pretty efficient. Even if you overloaded the S12, it still would have given lower ripple than those.

    Yeah, just checked Atelco. P/P isn't so good on the SeaSonic. About €65 for 430W. Though, it's based on a more solid platform than the CX. Those low-end CWT don't go beyond 600W or so, while the S12 goes up to 760W. PCP&C labels the same SeaSonic (430W) as 500W, yet it delivers good performance. BTW, just noticed this;

    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-HD-7900-XDR2-Rambus-Memory,13408.html

    Guess I guessed it right when I said 150W and below. :D

    That said, I think this should be his best bet:
