Default PSU Advice

Well usually I am damn good at this but as they say its always better to get advice first before doing something.

AMD AM3 965 + GX2 + GTS250 ( All stock, all folding).

Whats the Safest PSU I can get away with this.

I was thinking...HX650 might pull it off, but of course advice is wanted :)

Regards,
ST

I'd say a good 600W PSU or higher. The HX650 would have no trouble handling such a load.

Trust me RJ , I've looked high and low to find a good price on a PC 750W. I love those PSU's just like I love Enermax Revolutions.
But the HX650W can be had for a really good price so it was my first option.

The HX650 is a better PSU than the Silencer 750W anyway, so don't be disappointed if you end up with it.

The Truepower New is cheaper than the Corsair as well, so it would certainly be a better choice.

I agree but since I've had a bad run of Luck with some Multi-rail setups, I prefer single rails. Just a preferance before we start the single/multi rail discussion.
