I have a PSU question. I am assembling a basic HTPC for my basement and have the following components on order (not really looking for comments on the build):
1 x AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic ...
1 x ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM
1 x G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10S-8GBXL
1 x Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit - OEM
1 x Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 1850 MC-Kit FM radio and MCE remote PCI-E x1
1 x MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
1 x NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
The computer will be in a closet in the basement, so sound is not really an issue. What I am wondering is if I should buy a new PSU (thinking in the 550-650 range) or use my old PC Power & Cooling Turbo-cool 1200W (obviously overkill). The turbocool ran in my office desktop unitl I replaced it with a Seasonic X-1250 this past March (got sick of the noise). It was in my desktop (over 2 builds) for ~5 years.
If I go new trying to keep the cost under $70.
