    PSU Advice

    Today my computer switched off whilst playing a game, and before it did the screen went black. I checked temps and I don't think that was the issue so I think its my PSU.
    I've got the barebones bundle from novatech i posted I while back here hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…436
    I added a 1tb f3 and a sapphire hd 5770 which I imagine can push the basic 400w PSU to its limits?
    I would like to replace it with a good 550W+ PSU... what should I get?
    Thanks in advance

    ATI have the PSU as to low for that graphics & so yes you need higher Branded PSU.

    450 Watt or greater power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)

    Thanks, I'd like to stick a second HD 5770 in at some point so I guess I should go for a good 600W+
    Any suggestions?

    You've sorta of just persuaded me to wait for a good deal to come along
    Dropped my game fps by half to relieve that stress to graphics so it won't need extra power and disabled ati overdrive - hopefully this will stop my PSU struggling for a couple of weeks
