I going to be getting a
Asus P5B DX
Corsair TWIN2X2048-5400C4 2GB DDR2-675 XMS2-5400 Xtreme
Something along the lines of a EVGA 7950 KO superclock or someting like that
W.D 500G H.D

My question is will the 450W PSU from the antec sonata 2 get the job done,i been reading around and not many people are crazy with antec`s of late,im not looking for the long haul BTW just till spring when i install vista & DX10 card!Or could you guys point me in the direction of a good, quiet,cool case with PSU for no more than $150 that might be a better option,Also im not planning on doing and Oc`ing but i might play around a bit,how whould that change things with the sonata!

From what I understand, the problem with the SP series is some have bad caps. (aside from the lower Watts and amps...) This problem doesn't happen with the TP and Neo series. I also agree that you need something a little more for the overclocked 7950 series. A 600W TP/Neo should be fine.

the Antec SP series isnt as good as the TP or NeoHE series.

however i know alot of ppl with the Sonata2+450W SP2 psu using 7900 or x1900 series cards with no problems at all.
