ok hello everyone, i am planning on getting a new computer+monitor after being stuck with a laptop for 4 years that barely runs explorer :lol: 
anyways, i will write here the parts , and please write your opinions plus any suggestions or changes you think needs to happen
here it is:

INTEL CORE 2 DUO S775 2.66GHz(E6750) 1333MHz/FSB 4MB - BOX

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L

SAPPHIRE PCI-EX RADEON X1950PRO 512MB DDR3 DUAL DVI TV/O - RETAIL

WD 250GB 16MB SATA2 7200 RPM - WD2500AAKS

i have been searching about this monitor for about a half a year now and all i get are awesome thoughts about it..
also there is a thread in whirpool forums 300 pages about this monitor all say its an awesome monitor for its price

anyways, this about closes the budget, i know some of you will say "get a q6600" but here where i live it costs about 100 dollars more and i dont have the budget for that, but from what i heard the e6750 is an awesome processor so i think its cool..

most likely i will buy this computer+monitor at december-january so i hope by then there will be a little price drop that will let me take the q6600..

the corsair 450 psu costs more, way more..
the fsp400w should hold this system i think...

how much is that FSP ($) ?

I think you are going to need a better PSU. I googled the FSP-400. Specs say it has 2 18 amp outputs. The specs also say that the total 12 volt output is 348 watts - that's about 29 amps total.

Modern CPU's and GPU's are really fussy about power. Bargain bin PSU's will not work.

I would estimate that if the PSU costs less than about $80 (or local equivalent) and it's NOT on sale, it is probably inadequate for a modern PC, especially with a mid to upper end graphics card.

ok i get it.. then what should i go for? a liberty400?
other than the psu issue, hows the rest of the system im planning on?
September 21, 2007 10:29:12 AM

rest is good , as i said how much do u want to pay for a PSU ?

i live in israel so the prices are a little different, the fsp one here costs around 55 dollars, so iguess i want to pay up to 80, but from what i see i will need to put in 100dollars in order to get the liberty 400 which is very liked herein israel...

DUDE - FSP isn't Bargain Crap. They make very solid PSUs. They do have a range of products - but they are all very good for what they provide. I would tend to suggest something in the 450-500W range just because you look to have the potential of needing more.

I just put the AX400-PN from FSP in my brother in-law's computer. I hate working on his crap - because he can't make a decision on anything, and is resistant to spending any money. I did end up talking him into getting a quality PSU for his rig. This model isn't the top of the line for FSP - but it will work for many years to come (As I doubt if he will ever replace his P4 Prescott).

I have the FX600 - and it is enough for everything I will ever do. It's around $116 on newegg.

for you I would suggest:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
at around $53 - it will do you nicely.

As for Corsair, they haven't been making PSUs for very long, but what they do make is also good. a rule of thumb - never spend less than $40 on a PSU, and generally spend more than $50. It doesn't matter what you buy - so long as it will power what you have, and is constructed with quality components. Read the PSU 101 sticky.

Cheers.

in newegg, CORSAIR 450 is $79.99
September 21, 2007 1:36:05 PM

so will the psu (fsp400w) i put here be enough or not?!
September 21, 2007 8:10:49 PM

It should be fine - I would go for the 450 - but 400W will be enough. If you add a graphics card later on - that needs lots of juice - there are some 5 1/4" drive bay power supplies which you can get to take on that load.
