Hi All

I'm going to build a pc for my neice for christmas and will build it in a Prodigy.

Need some advice. Pc will not be overlocked and will have the following:
Intel core i3 3225
DVD drive
120gb SSD
1tb hdd
Gigaybyte z77 wifi

I may eventually get her a gpu, but i think the cpu will handle 1680x1050 for now (gw2, wow only)

Will a 400watt psu be enough, if not what about a 500watt. Also does anyone have experience with diff psu's in the Prodigy will a corsair CX400/500 fit or am i better off spending a little extra for the PC power and cooling.

Thanks

tamzzy thanks for that recommendation. I have also been looking into a PSU for the Bitfinex Prodigy and this smaller depth PSU sounds like the perfect solution to make the build easier.

Thanks for replies ill check out the silverstone PSU, but it maybe out of my price range, not sure i can go over £60-65.

The HD4000 will run WoW and GW2 fine for her, she's 12, and she'll inherit my old 480 gtx or ill buy her a 650 at some point, but for the meantime it'll be fine, she can lower settings and run at 13666x768 if needed.
