I've got a computer I'm building and I'm wondering what the minimum required PSU would be. I've got an ULTRA 400W hanging around and hoping that would be sufficient for my rig.
CPU AMD Athlon 64 4000+ Mobo ASUS T3-M2NC51PV 2 GB Patriot Ram DDR2 PC6400 (2x1024mb) ASUS DVD Burner Drive 160GB Maxtor HD Nvidia 8600GT 256mb
This is essentially all that would be attached to the computer besides a small case fan (80mm) or two. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, John Madden
More aboutminimum required
That system has fairly low power requirements and provided that the psu you're using is quality then it should work just fine, my friend had a fairly similar system running on a 300w so I wouldn't sweat it.
u should be concerned with the cpu first - spend the extra few bucks and get a amd 5600 lol you wont regret it
Which Ultra PSU is it? You should be fine either way. Make sure you get the x2 4000+ and not the single core one.
Happy Building and good luck
I think the Ultra is the V-Series, but from what I can gather, this setup at full load won't draw more than 250 watts. The only concern I have left is having the amps, but it seems that might not be that bad as there is little draw on the supply. Any more suggestions/information/comments would be appreciated, but I thank everyone for their assistance in this matter.
