Greatly appreciated More about : wattage gaming Reply to danwanster Outlander_04 a b 4 Gaming April 5, 2014 3:03:18 AM No wattage at all . It wont run . The motherboard is for an AMD processor . You need a socket 1150 intel motherboard , ideally with a Z87 chipset You also need a dual channel 2 x4 gig kit of RAM . 1600 Mhz and rated for 1.5 volts or less And then you'd need a 600 - 650 watt psu . 80+ bronze or better rated Reply to Outlander_04 m 0 l Best solution manofchalk a b 4 Gaming April 5, 2014 3:04:36 AM For a rig like that, 550-650W PSU would be fine. As Outlander pointed out, a few incompatibilities in there you will want to clean up.
