let's just agree that the guy is completely deluded, is pulling things out of some kind of a magic hat and well in general, he knows very little about what he's talking about. then he often backtracks, contradicts himself etc.

Creation, you have been wrong countless times, others have pointed it out so I think it's time to own up to it. you talk before you think sometimes. Oh and pls show me the 300 eur headphones I was recommending? if you don't we'll just have to agree that everything I've said about you above (making things up etc) is true.

Anyway OP, have you decided on the final parts for this rig? and also, like Syko said, would you consider used parts? there's always some good deals going on here in the trading section and you could grab your mate a bargain.

Frankly, no one cares what you calculated about your system, because it isn't the system in question. We're talking about the OP's potential system and it isn't the same. 7850 will absolutely max out at 130w on a program like furmark. CPU will absolutely max out at 100w.

That's 230w, if the CPU has four cores at 100% and the GPU is running furmark.

Add in the system board, 50w. Add in some hard disks, let's give 30 for those. Fans and accessories another 20. And we're at 400w. That's if EVERYTHING in the computer is COMPLETELY stressed which literally never occurs. Its difficulty to even make it happen if you're trying to, because you have to stress the disks as well. Even given all those requirements, you're still at 80% of the capacity of the PSU.

Even then, the PSU screams along, zero problems.

But in real life, the GPU doesn't sit at 130w, because you don't play furmark. The CPU doesn't sit at 100w, because you don't play IBT. Not even close on either. In real life, the GPU is more like 100-110. The CPU is more like 50-70. The disks are mostly idle. The RAM isn't fully utilized. The fans aren't spinning 100%. The disk drive isn't spinning. The motherboard isn't delivering full power.

I mean, there's just so much extra power that isn't used that you're just insane, it's ridiculous. 500w is fine. Let it go. You're embarrassing yourself by attempting to troll the thread. Just let it go man. You're wrong. That's OK.
But but but....I like it when he tries to say we're all wrong!!!!

Hard to recommend higher wattage psu then needed on such a tight budget... and I wouldn’t consider spending more on it for future upgrades. Worry about that when that time comes. Just my 2c, not directed at the OP as he already knows this.

^ That sounds pretty reasonable.

@CreationP Your a idiot except it so go have your bottle from mummy.

To answer the op i played wow on pretty good settings with a I3 2100
and a 6300 beats it and can overclock a fair bit even on stock cooler.
Even tho i am ATI bias person i would say the 650TI should do fine
but if you can get a 7850 do it very nice card and at the end of the day will the system just run 1 game?.

That explains why your so dumb nobody ever taught you anything clap clap clap.
Op i forgot to mention the 7770 is a good option for a GFX card that with a I5 3470 runs wow pretty well.

One more insult from either one of you ... and your account is halted.

Choose wisely.
