Do I need a HX-620 or will the HX-520 suffice? Tags: Power Supplies Optical Media Components Product Last response: July 27, 2008 5:49 PM in Components Share Adz85 July 27, 2008 3:45:08 PM I'm looking at putting together a new system with an E8400 and a 4850 Gfx card. I would like the option of later adding a 2nd 4850 card. I run 2 hdds and 1 optical drive, and 2 PCI devices. Will the 520W HX-520 be enough or should I get the HX-620?

MrCommunistGen July 27, 2008 4:40:11 PM The Corsair 750W is pretty cheap all things considered. On Newegg it's the same price as the HX520 and it's cheaper than the HX620. -mcg Related resources Will my amd 955 x4 still suffice my gaming needs? - Forum Do I need to get a new PSU? or would my current one suffice? - Forum Is my configuration suffice my gaming needs - Forum Do I need a high-end mobo or a medium level suffice? - Forum Will this build suffice gaming needs? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
