Power Up Our Dream Computer With XFX Pro 1050W Power Supply

September 10, 2014

In the past few weeks, I’ve listed several of the components that I would include in a “dream computer”. They are not the least expensive components nor are they the most expensive. Our goal is to get a lot of bang for the bucks invested in a computer. For those who have missed some of the previous posts, they are each listed below.

XFX Pro 1050W Black Edition Power SupplyNow we need to add some juice to our computer as it won’t do us any good if we are unable to turn it on. We need a power supply capable of delivering a steady flow of good clean power to all of our components.

My theory has always been to choose a power supply that delivers a little more power than what we need just in case something else is added in the future. If you have seen power supplies, you may have noticed the wide variety of cables coming out of them. So it is also nice to have a PSU (power supply unit) where you only need to connect the cables needed.

For these reasons and more, I went with the XFX Pro 1050W Black Edition PSU. At 1050 watts, it delivers more than what we need without being complete overkill. The current selling price of $188.99 at Amazon doesn’t break the bank, plus you can get an additional $30 back with a rebate.

So far we’ve put together a good core for our system. Next week I’ll add another component as we get closer to completing our dream computer.
