  1. It will but be aware, it does just have one 12v rail. Even though it is 18amps it could be overwhelmed if you have enough added components or if you OC.

    FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX450-PN ($52) - dual 12v rails at 18amps per.

    yeah i know those PSU, but im on a budget, im just going to have the ram, cpu, x850xt, mobo, 1 cd drive, 1 hd and maybe 2 fans, and i may oc like 200-300 mhz, so its worth spending the little more?
  4. Well, if your PSU can't handle it, it will let you know. Have you already purchased the PSU? If not, what is your budget for one?

    If your PSU dies, you may have the priviledge of replacing more than just the PSU.
  6. Valid point.
    While my last computer fried.
    It was more likely to the lightning strike.
    KT800(some similar chipset) board with my athlon 64 3200(chip lived)
    mobo video HDD's and 1 stick of ram(others still worked? *shrug*)
    Next time I'll definetely get a nice UPS with guarantee.

    However I have had restarting issues before from poor power supplies.
    Also a lot of places have poorly regulated power.
    If you were to buy a pc from dell you'd probably buy a warranty. ( I know none of us would but one from dell I hope )
    They run like $400.
    $10 for a better psu is in your interest.
