What PSU do I need?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

simplified specs: i5-650 CPU, integrated graphics (the PSU question comes up because im planning on upgrading to an RX 560 2gb) 8gb ram, 250gb HDD (gonna upgrade to an SSD later down the line) with an optical drive. note: also needs to fit optiplex 980 case because fuck it im not buying another case


my terrible laptop: CPU: i5-2450M at 2.60 ghz base (however goes up to 3.30 ghz on any steam game i run. odd.) GPU: integrated Quadro NVS 4200m (garbage. the reason that this is terrible.) 6GB of ram, 300GB HDD. refurbished Dell Latitude Esomething. got it for like 140 bucks on amazon.

Would probably opt for a CX 550W, for some reason, Corsair only opted for a single PCIe 8pin power cable for the 450W model.
