Hey, love that PSU calculator!

I'm running a Gigabyte 785 board w/AMD Phenom X4 B50 (X2 550 Black unlocked), 1 SATA, CD/RW and as many as 6 IDE hard drives w/PCI IDE/RAID adaptor, external USB drive. Using 585W PSU.

The calculator shows I need 325 Watts.

LOL - I'm using the built-in 4200 and even cut down the system RAM it's using. Not much of a power-user here.

Mainly Excel and some graphic design - Office 2003 and very old program called Micrographx and a few others.

I was running a AOpen board, simple vid card and up to 6 IDEs on it - all with a 350W and no problems. But I did worry a bit about it!

Only games I run are Age of Empires II - didn't seem to tax my old system with either 64 or 128 vid cards.
