I’m going for a very low budget build & need a good PSU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am going for a very low budget build with a dell optiplex 7010 with a 3rd gen i5 & getting a r7 370 to go along with it. What would be a good PSU to put in there?

Is it a small form factor (SFF) tower?

Hey there! In my opinion a 400W power supply would be more than enough. Maybe even a less powerful power supply could get the job done, but the graphics card you will be using is known to be quite a bit power hungry. Then again, I'm not that experienced regarding this topic, so maybe get a few more people to answer your question.

Nah 400W will easily handle that CPU & GPU combo, the only question is whether OP's Dell is a MT or SFF as that will determine what PSU we can shove in there

 

The MT Optiplex aren't really that different to your regular ATX tower, so a normal ATX-sized PSU will go in just fine. Though wattage starts at like 450W for a decent quality PSU (Corsair CXM usually)

 

If its the SFF tower, then we might have a size problem as that won't fit a regular ATX PSU.


CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G@3.9Ghz  Heatsink: AMD Wraith Stealth GPU: Zotac GTX 1060 Mini 6GB RAM: Kingston HyperX Predator RGB 3200Mhz Mobo: ASRock B450M-Pro4  Case: Phanteks P300 PSU: Superflower Silver ECO 600W
