Not sure which forum this should be on, but since it will be overclocked some...
How many watts am I going to need to run this config?
AMD Athlon XP 2100+ Tbred-b OEM CPU
ThermalTake Smart Fan 2 80mm
ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard
80 gb WD 8mb Cache HD
BK sony floppy Newegg 10
CHIEFTEC FS710 Black Case
4 case fans
I figure it will use about 350 watts, so the TT-360AD(DUAL FAN) is what I have my eye on. Is that enough for that config (which will be overclocked) or should I get a 420 watt PS or so?
Hey I would agree- quality is more important then quantity when is comes to psu's. I have a setup nearly identical to yours, and I'm running it all on an Antec 300 watt supply... I've never had a problem with it, although I do wish I had gotten a bigger supply, just so I would have a little extra headroom.
Enermax is the way to go...The ENERMAX EG365AX-VE (W)FMA provides 26A to the +12v rail and is only a 350w psu....most generic 500w power supplys will underperform this quality power supply....I recommmend either this one or the 465AX (433w)if you want even more power
