Don't take demanding tones with people who are trying to help.


Did you EVEN bother to actually look at the power supply guide at this forum?

<Linked in signature>

Had you read it you would know any of the ones you linked would be FINE.

yes i looked at the guide first as a matter of fact. I'm just in a stress mode is all n i apologize. I excepted to already order my parts but i need my dad to have a say so.

anyways, all an all, the real difference from the 600w n 700w is nothing much, but last thing im concern is the electric bill going higher because of the 100 extra watts. If no differ then ill get the 700w but 600w seems to be enough.

EDIT:

the HIPER 630w is exactly what i need. It has the 8pin n enough amps. I may order this one n if it dies or is DOA on me, ill be sure to let u guys know.

that GameXStream 600w is rebate of $10, n i like lower prices for higher performance.

gosh i sound like an idiot....... X(

A 520 Watt Power supply such as the Corsair HX would power it fine...
But of course you always want to leave alot of room for upgrades and new builds en such...
