What kind of wattage do I need for this? Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: May 6, 2007 6:14 AM in Components Share Bloopie May 6, 2007 5:53:08 AM Hello. I've been told I would need 400W by some people, others said 450W, some said I should go for a 500W to be safe. But I do have a budget so I need to get just what's right and not much more. Here are the specs: CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, 1066Mhz, s775, 4MB Mobo: 965P-DS3 s775, Conroe, DDRII 800, PCI-E RAM: 2x1GB TwinMOS CL5 GFX: 7600GT 256MB TV, DVI, PCI-E HDD: 250GB 7200RPM, 16MB, SATA II DVD±RW: GSA-H42NK x18 LG Not planning on overclocking. I was thinking about a 420W Thermaltake PSU, how does that sound? Thanks. By the way, I did try that eXtreme Outer Vision PSU calculator but I only got a result of 348W so I'm not sure how accurate this is.

Does this mean that this PSU will not work for me? http://www.thermaltake.com/product/Power/TR2power/w0061... +3.3V +5V +12V1 +12V2 -12V +5VSB It doesn't mean anything to me...
