This is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1L9gT I gonna change the PSU for a XFX branded one. Question is: Is enough with the xfx 550w Pro? I won´t add discs or Videocards (board don't support SLi). Maybe a SD internal reader. thanks for your feedback! I'm pretty new in the world of PSU.

Yes, anything above 500w should be fine. Also be sure to buy a reliable product with about or at least 30 amps on the 12V line.


Best for $60: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-hive550

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-hive750 (more watts, useful for future upgrades)


Are you referring to this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9

This is also a good PSU.


All 4 PSUs mentioned in my post are on the same level of quality, and are around the same price for $60.

Thank you. Yes, is the last one. I thought I could buy it today, but arrived too late and the shop was closed... I hope monday would be a better day for shopping.
