Hello all, I am (once again) reaching out to the community for an answer to a question. I have a build in the works right now, and I need to know what size PSU would be minimum, and what size would be IDEAL for this build. My specs are as follows:
- Sony Optiarc 24x DVD Burner - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- WD500GB Caviar Blue Internal Hard Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- GTX 560 non ti 1GB GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- Team Elite 8GB RAM 1600 speed - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- AMD FX 6100 6 Core processor 3.3ghz - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- Gigbyte GA-970A-D3 AM3+ Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks for the answers people.

P.S. If anybody could tell me how well this build could run BF3 at ultra, it would be so much appreciated! I'll even give you a cookie ;)  haha

this can help you with the calculating the PSU watts needed
http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index...

a 500W PSU is the result but if i were you i would get more (a 600W)

with that rig BF3 will run good with 40+ fps all maxout, i got AMD's 955 @3.4 and a GTX470 with 50-45fps avg
