I would say to get ~ a 500w PSU...better to have a little extra...should you decide to add a graphics card, or a few more HD's. GL | Report abuse Da_Banig April 30, 2007 1:30:35 AM Thanks : ) But I won't be adding anything. The PC I am building is basically use for word/internet no games at all. My other question is, A P4 3.2Ghz Prescott eats a lot more power than a Core 2 E4300 isn't it? | Report abuse locky28 April 30, 2007 2:16:37 AM Sure does. | Report abuse Da_Banig April 30, 2007 4:19:31 AM Like how much more does the Prescott uses tho? do you know? | Report abuse locky28 April 30, 2007 4:31:38 AM Sure Do. Heres the link | Report abuse NaDa April 30, 2007 6:17:45 AM If it's not overclocked I think the whole system wouldnt use more than 70-80w at full load. | Report abuse jaguarskx CPUs Master Graphics card Master April 30, 2007 6:36:36 AM Since the E4300 clockspeed is only slightly slower than the E6300, I would imagine the idle and load power consumption will be very similar; 26w / 44w. http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/core2duo-s... | Report abuse Da_Banig April 30, 2007 1:15:45 PM Ah thanks guys, sweet stuff here. | Report abuse yakyb April 30, 2007 2:00:27 PM try www.intel.com | Report abuse Ycon April 30, 2007 3:06:30 PM 100W idle 230W load However, these values include a video card but I do not know the exact config (taken from a review). | Report abuse NaDa April 30, 2007 3:11:23 PM 230W at load?
