Solved

Will my power supply have a problem running "my" settings?

Settings

CPU : AMD Vishera 8350
Motherboard : ASRock/Gigabyte 970 motherboard
GPU : 1 x Sapphire 7870 2gb ghz edition
RAM : 2 x 4GB AMD ddr3 / Kingston?
Casing : Thermaltake Commander MS-I
HDD : Seagate 500gb 7200 RPM
CD/DVD-R writer : some generic DVD writer i think.

[ PSU : Aerocool Strike-X / X-strike 600W 80+ bronze ]


- I would most probably run AMD Vishera 8350 with a stock cooler.

- Thermaltake Commander MS-I with the default or 3-4 fans.

- I won't be overclocking.

Thanks!

::side note::
Which is better the Kingston or the AMD ram? If you have any suggestion please feel free to express your opinion.

Please do share your same/similar build that you run ( with no problems ).

    600w is plenty for your rig, however, Aerocool is not a well trusted brand. If you have not bought the aero cool yet, change to a Corsair, Seasonic, Antec of XFX supply. If you have bought it, just be careful and watch your temps and voltages carefully.

    Edit: On the ram - I personally would buy Kingston over AMD, but I have not heard anything bad about AMD. Just my preference of the two.

    thanks!

    I might go buy a corsair (RAM) if I found one here.

    Any suggestion on any application that might monitor the temps and voltages?
