Well, im building my own pc case to replace my old outdated xbox 360. My goal is to make a gaming pc with a case as small as xbox 1. Will a micro atx powerful enough to power on 8800gt, 9600gt, or ati 3850? If this 2 power supplys below cant handle it, what power supply is recommended? it needs to be small as possible. Current spec are:
Patriot 2gb 6400 Lat:4
AMD 4200 x2
no graphic card yet
Well a Antec 380w Earthwatts could, but not sure how long it would last. Especially in a small enclosure and if the cooling isn't sufficient. See my link in my signature about the capabilities of the 380w PSU. I'm not sure about a small PSU, but I'd go with a Antec 430w Earthwatts PSU at a minimum with a 8800gt. Not sure if I'd put a 8800gt into a small case, because it's known pretty well at running hot. You could get by with a lesser PSU for the 9600gt or the 3850, since they don't require as much power as the 8800gt.
