PSU Requirements? by Help4Noob
Complete virgin to PC building so apologies from the start if this is a stupid question but what PSU(s) would you recommend for this board with this Graphics Card QC: 43564 (Asus GeForce GTX 560Ti DCII/2DI/1GD5 DirectCU II 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card) please?
Don't want to under power it but certainly don't want to blow the backside out of the National Grid either :0)
Thank you for your time.
I would recommend a branded psu providing 600watts or more
