Simple Gamers Need Efficient Parts... This Can Be One

MSI MPG A850GF 850 W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
MSI MPG A850GF 850 W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: -very efficient power -for the cost to performance ratio, this is worth every dollar -when I put in my new graphics card while my computer was running (thru my inexperience building a pc), my Power Supply did its job and shut itself down via the safety switch. The motherboard is gone but everything else is perfectly fine. -much power

Cons: -very slight audibility during high load -no sleeves

Overall Review: Revisiting after 8 years of use. Basically, the fan noise became noticeably louder during high loads or playing games but is fairly silent while doing web surfing or simple tasks. The power supply safety overcurrent switch did its job during a fateful event where a GPU was being Hotswapped (Not Doing That Again >w< ). This PSU is worth every penny but I will say It could be better.

Works as intended

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3060 Twin Edge OC 12GB GDDR6 192-bit 15 Gbps PCIE 4.0 Gaming Graphics Card, IceStorm 2.0 Cooling, Active Fan Control, FREEZE Fan Stop ZT-A30600H-10M
ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3060 Twin Edge OC 12GB GDDR6 192-bit 15 Gbps PCIE 4.0 Gaming Graphics Card, IceStorm 2.0 Cooling, Active Fan Control, FREEZE Fan Stop ZT-A30600H-10M

Pros: -way better than my 1660 Super in terms of overall quality and performance. -I'm able to play Control with RTX on and have some nice visuals so that's a plus. -Nice and sturdy. - It does what it does... play games efficiently.

Cons: -Price isn't the best, even for an "MSRP OC card". (I got it because of the Shuffle so I had to buy it :/) -no RGB on the card. I would have like to at least get some RGB on the lettering for how much I paid for my graphics card but that's a personal preference.

Overall Review: -I would get this if you don't mind the price, its available at MSRP and if you have a 1000 series card. However, if I had the chance to buy a 3060 ti, I would rather buy that than this 3060. But that's only if it was available. Other than that very solid card. So good luck and good hunting!
