What PSU for Dual Xeon?

I got a great deal on two matched Intel Xeon 2.4GHZ 533mhz (retail) cpu's and then bought the ASUS PC-DL and memory. What power supply would be sufficient enough for this configuration? This machine will be dedicated only for video editing (Adobe Premiere, After Effects, etc). Any other comments/suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

  1. I would think 400w should be good. Something by a quality mfg. Fortron Source, Sparkle (ones with FSP in part #), Enermax, OCZ, Antec (Truepower series) are all quality brands. If you want the absolute best (and since its a production rig, it may not be a bad idea) get something from PC Power & Cooling - but you'll pay mightily for it. The others give you good stable power for less, but some people think its worth it for the best.

  2. Thanks Mike, looks like the T51XE may be the winner.
