search psu calculator on google and take the top one i think and put what u have in and go calculate, that psu should have enough on the 12v rails so just make sure u got enough watts

erm!! i did the calculation on newegg.com and extreme.outervision.com and both of them come out a very big gap of result.... 480watt++ with 635watt++

and 1 more question..what brand of psu should i choose...
not so familiar with psu mobo...anyone out there can give me a hand?
what with those extrem power,real power, purepower..??same wattage but why is the price so big gap?

You could save with the P5K E with WIFI. DDR3 is so expensive right now it makes no sense. With in a year to year to 18 months there will be new Intel boards, coming to the end of the 775 cycle, which is when it's likely DDR3 will make financial sense. If you're not significantly overclocking, the 560w should work.

The first one provides more than enough power.

That Silverstone unit is a quality PSU, 36A on dual 12v rails at near 80% efficiency. It will power your system fine even when overclocked.

According to the silvertone site, it is 40A. Newegg lists it with dual 18A rails, but it is 20A on the silverstone site. Must have been bolstered a bit, and they lowered the power on the 5V and 3.3V rails to keep it at 560W.
