300W PSU ???? Tags: Power Supplies Gigabyte Components Product Last response: November 29, 2005 3:58 PM in Components Share carrots November 29, 2005 11:17:57 AM A64 3200+ 2 x 512MB Transcend 400Mhz Gigabyte MB K8N - SLI Hitachi 250 GB SATA2 HD DVD-RW Gigabyte Sparkle 6600 GT 128 1 system fan. Will a 300W PSU be enough for the above setup? I know it wont be enough once I get a second 6600GT for SLI, but right now my budget is very tight.

Best bet is to go with a 400 or 430 watt, like Antec TruePower 430, that way you will have quality and room to grow. carrots November 29, 2005 11:37:01 AM I will get a 300W PSU with the case I buy. So to chuck that out and get a separate PSU will cost a bit more than the difference between a 300W and a 400W PSU. It is a Chenbro Gaming Bomb Case. Also, I vaguely remember reading that P4 needs 24 pin PSU, while AMD needs only 20 pin. The difference is about 25% in price.

[/shrugs] fishmahn November 29, 2005 3:27:30 PM If the PSU is the same one as in this xbit review of the case http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/other/display/chenbro_6.html, then you'll be fine. The review unit came with a Fortron Source PSU. May even be good enough to power you when you get your 2nd GPU. Though at 300w, that's pushing it a bit... if it was 350 however... 20 pin/24 pin - doesn't matter much. You can get an adapter either way if you need to. Mike.
