    [Solved] Enough power?

    I am planing on using a i5 4690K with an over clock, and a GTX 970. Could I use a 500w PSU or do I need more? Thank you for the advice.

    Poll: Modular vs Non-Modular PSU?

    I’m planning on building a Hackintosh in a year or two. I’ll use a non-modular PSU to save some money. I’ll be using an ATX case. In terms of functionality, would you go with a modular PSU or a non-modular one? Is a modular PSU worth the 15-20% higher price?
