Default Help with psu requirements

Hi folks,

I'm leaning toward to Corsair RMx series for my current rig and for my future upgrades.
I'm not from US and my choice for Corsair is just due good support and warranty.

My current rig is listed in my sig.
It's getting age and would be nice a new psu that could also handle the new GTX series and the current Intel/AMD processors.

According to the outervision psu calculator the recommended PSU Wattage is about 400W.

So the RM 550x/650x would be fine or it's better to get a higher grade psu?

Thanks.

The best choice depends on the availability, price, requirements and preferences. Without knowing that it's hard to give some decent advice.

Anyhow, your current PC only pulls around 200/225W tops out of the PSU without overclocking.

The Bearing on the RMx is nothing special, it's a rifle bearing. The RMi has the better FDB bearing.

Just forgot to answer about overclocking.

For my purposing running any gpu at stock clocking is ok for my needs.
Although would be nice to have some headroom for the cpu overclocking.

Agreed.

But I think the rifle is still fine, at least it's more reliable then the cheap sleeve's.
