I'm building my first PC in a very long time and am a little confused about what size / make of PSU to get.
I'm planning on putting it with following parts:
1 x Asus P5K-E/WIFI-AP LGA775 Intel P35 FSB 1333 DDR2 1066 2X PCI
1 x Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz LGA775 1066FSB LGA775 Retail Box
1 x Corsair 2GB(2*1GB) PC2-6400 DDR2-800 C4 TWIN2X E.P.P. Technology
1 x Asus NVidia 8800GTS 640M PCI-E Dual DVI
2 x Seagate 320GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 16MB
1 x iCute S901-BB 5G with 25cm side panel fan
I do plan on adding upto another 2 HDD in the future.
exactly the same PSU that you yanks get,
go to www.scan.co.uk or www.ebuyer.com
they both have warehouses of stock.
i would alos add to the list any akasa, hiper power and enermax that meet your power requirements (just not iCute, ast month someone tried to argue that thier cases look good when they were just a Coolermaster copy) all the mention PSUfrom both mine and the previous list are fine
I said 30A because of your video card, which I believe takes about 28A. (a little extra won't hurt.) I noticed the iCute isn't on the list, is that because it can't output that much power or because we already said to not get it?
While others probably know better, I'm going to argue that if you are going to buy the Enermax, you might as well get the cheaper ToughPower. Unless someone knows why, they would probably perform about the same. I would personally get the Neo 500W seeing as its only $13 more.
