Hi,

I am planning to make the following build:

CPU: i7-4790k
MB: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 2 x 8GB DDR3
SSD: 128GB A-Data
HDD: 4TB WD
GPU: Integrated

CPU will be overclocked to about 4.5GHz.

Can you please suggest a decent power supply for that build?

Thanks.

I have a deal for this:

Is it good enough?

Best to stay away from that one, not all that great.

For the old Corsair CX seriesd with Green label, i agree. But for the newer Grey label units, and 550w is a grey label unit, is very fine and decent and one of the best in that price range.

Yeah, true, but that really isn't saying much. :D

Since most in that price range are dumpster fire power supply shaped units.
