Default Power Supply ?

Hi, If I'm going to build a gaming computer, should I choose a special power supply to overclock ?

If yes, why ?

depends on what parts you buy, with PSU`s its good to go with a known brand a 400W antec can perform better than 550w generic case PSU.

check out this thread:

It depends on how much power you need. Nothing special is needed.

If you are going to make a gaming system I would HIGHLY recommend this PSU:
OCZ GameEXtream 600W PSU - $129.99 with a $20 mail-in rebate so total of only $109.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341001
This will give you more than enough power for any system build with high end components. The only reason to go higher than this is if you want to SLI top end vidcards (Which I want to do and am considering whether I need a more powerful PSU than my 700W )
