So it is the wattage that matters more or the platform?Have to echo what others said. There is a time and place for basic budget PSUs like an EVGA BR (or a newer Corsair VS). That time and place doesn't involve GPUs that can hit the 200W mark. There's a lot of variability in how much juice a PC like that will need at any point and I'd rather have something more stable and better able to handle stress.
Nope. The PSU is the backbone of a computer. You want a weak unreliable backbone? A cheap PSU can literally FRY your other components. If you want a PSU in that price range nobody is gonna recommended one because they are all bad. So your options are, spend enough to get a decent one or pick whatever you think is best and roll with the results.Also is the rosewill hive series a good psu?
