On a tight budget and wondering if anyone could recommend me a 600w + PSU at a cheaper cost?


Rate my specs:

intel i5 6600k - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117561

GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

HyperX FURY 8GB (2 x 4GB)




ALSO, could I downgrade the motherboard? im pushing my budget

430W is more than enough for what you're doing. Also you need a Z mobo if you want to overclock that 6600k CPU. Get a non-k intel if you have no interest in overclocking it and a B or H mobo to save some money that way.

>> No.57889557


>> No.57889582

what about this ?

>> No.57889587

EITHER spend more get a Z170 mobo so you can overclock which means you need a good cooler on it

OR get a i5 6500 and drop the h170 to a b150 or h110 and use the stock cooler with the 6500.

Your build is more than enough for modern gaming at 1080p 60 fps with either CPU which means its obviouslt good enough for Skyrim. If youre overclocking do not drop below a good rated 500w so you have trouble. A lower rated 600w is good too.

thank you for your help. what does the B and H stand for? also, right now on newegg.ca the 6600 and 6600k have about a $15 price difference...

Right, so a 6600k will be more than enough for recording your mixtape to send to Drake.

>> No.57889910

Only pay for the k variant if you are also getting a Z branded mobo to overclock that CPU. If you aren't interested in that at all just save your money and get a well rated B or H mobo that has all the basic features you'll need. Just get whatever fits your budget. Fuck the benchmarks, it won't matter to you for what you're doing.

New games will use more electricity than your DAW no matter what you're recording because they'll load the CPU and the GPU at the same time, the DAW won't use the GPU at all. You're looking at a 200w load worst scenario from the computer while recording.

You should make sure that you have back-up storage so you don't lose your work as well.

don't cheap out on psu's, because if it's fucked, your other parts might be fucked, and you will definitely be fucked.

problems in function and likelihood of your whole computer blowing up? no, but other than just cutting off your ability to overclock, you start to corner yourself in what you can do with your pc. less fans, less SATA ports, less ram slots, less pci slots, but if you run the basics of what a computer needs, this will get you by no problem.

the lower Wattage PSU's in this line also have good reviews.

We are buying nearly the same system, except im going with a Z170 motherboard because there is no point in a i5 6000K unless you plan to Overclock it.

I went with the RM750x because it left some room to put more powerful gpus and higher overclocks in the future.

I've got a mid-high end seasonic in my current build... the quality of everything was superb.

This system has been extremely stable and the PSU has worked flawlessly. currently at a 64 day uptime.....

Fellow Furyfag here, how much OC did you get out of it?

>> No.57919226

1100MHz, too scared to go higher for fear of burning down house. Will check how far I can push it using Wattman + a stronger PSU

>> No.57919295

Same, I haven't tried pushing my Fury Nitro past that either. I did switch to the supposedly more aggressive BIOS though and granted it +30% on the power limit.

too much?
