    What is better?

    What do you mean with better? I don't see anything of those to be exclusive, so you can have it all. This month you get Bulletstorm full Clip Edition and Yakuza Kiwami... Games on "Black Friday" might vary and be interesting or not. And RDR2 is absolutely a good game that also takes a long time to go through. Alternatives: Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider-Man.

    PSU Tier List Updated

    Get the 550W, the 650W is crap because it has the same modular panel as the 550W... So save the money and get the 550W as the 650W don't offer you an advantage. Your PSU isn't on the low end, just a bit old and sadly group regulated (didn't understand why they wanted the E9 as the E8 was better)...

    How much could i get for my PS4?

    TBH, I'd get Spider-Man, Horizon Zero Dawn and Red Dead Redemption 2, play through that. And think about selling it then. Because those are three games you should have played (well, at least the first two)... The thing with that bundle is that the Games are soo different that it might be hard to find someone who's interested in all of that. So the Question is: do you want to just get rid of it or do you want to make the most money out of it? Because the way I'd see it is that you could make more when you sell it seperately.

    PSU Tier List Updated

    Yeah and Leadex isn't more than a rearrangement of that with fully modular in mind. They both have the same components. And at the time the Golden Green were considered high(er) end, something between a be quiet Straight and a Dark Power Pro.

    Some kind of low end basic game console for TV?

    ...and increase input lag....
  6. Condolences... Really sad that this thing is still sold, especially for that Price... Well, there are still people recommending it...
  7. No, M12II 620W is group regulated garbage without decent protection. If Cooler Master would do something like that, they'd be bashed to smithereens. If Corsair would have something like that still in their lineup they'd be bashed too. Its really not good...

    Can my power supply handle Crossfire Vega64?

    That's bullshit. Look at that: https://www.tweakpc.de/hardware/tests/netzteile/corsair_rm850x_white/s03.php https://www.tweakpc.de/hardware/tests/netzteile/be_quiet_straight_power_11/s03.php https://www.tweakpc.de/hardware/tests/netzteile/seasonic_focus_gold/s03.php https://www.tweakpc.de/hardware/tests/netzteile/corsair_hx750/s03.php The difference in 230VAC is negligable between 30 and 70% load. WIth the HX750 you have like 2% between 100% Load and peak efficiency. Between 30 and 70 its like 1% or less, often like 0,5% or something like that... And a bigger PSU has often still the same Heatsinks, so can't be quieter either. As said earlier, Continuous means continuous at rated voltage, 24/7 operation at rated temperature. Some even print it on their Box: https://img.tweakpc.de/image/dsc-4247-andere.l21

    Can my power supply handle Crossfire Vega64?

    In theory it should. In reality you have to look and see. If it works, its good, if it shuts down, you know you need a new PSU...

    Adapt PSU to GPU

    the Segotep Gold seem cheap and decent. After that the usual higher end Gold units. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story3&reid=568 Look at the CL1 and CL2 values. The MWE Bronze should be quite similar in 550W and below, 600W and up are the ones one could think about...

    What wattage power supply?

    Not really, IIRC its based on the same design as a be quiet Straight Power 10. They still use it - in the Pure Power 10 and 11. So I'd rather not get an EVGA unit anyway. How about Bitfenix Formula, Whisper M, be quiet Straight Power 11?? Are they available? For the Straight Power 11, either 550 or 750W.

    Best modular power supply

    If you have an older lower end Board like a H310 you might have to anyway...

    £36.19 budget power supply

    That's only a question of voltage and failure mode... With the right failure and voltage, yes, that's possible. Some of the real crap units were measured with like half a volt to volt ripple on +12V for example... You remember that Explosion video from Tweak PC??

    Best modular power supply

    8350 is only a 4 core, so I wouldn't really buy it. The CPU is right now 170€. For the same amount of money you can get an 8 Core. And that's no joke. The Ryzen 1700 is sold for the same price as the i3 is. The 1700x is a bit more with 179€ The new 2700 is way more expensive at around 260 and the 2700X is 300€... So I'd go for the 1700x as its best value/money...
