  1. Best answer
    30A on 12v rail is 360watts. And the amount of wattage you need is dependent on what CPU you have and what GPU you have. Id say grab a 500 watt power supply and you will be good. That motherboard has a 24pin connector for the power supply which is standard. So any 500 watt power supply will work if it was made in the last 10 years
  2. ok sounds good because im hella nervous at the moment upgrading the pc for the first time, don't wanna fry the thing haha

    I had a look around i saw the Corsair CX 500 doesn't look too bad for the price
