I am building a budget PC and I would like to know if the Cooler Master Real Power 450W is enough. Based on my research, it should be fine but I just need confirmations from you guys before a finalize the budget and build the PC
Here are the specs:
- Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 2.66Ghz
- A P43 motherboard (I want the PCI-E2.0 that it has) or I could get a P35 which is cheaper
- Ati Radeon HD4830
- Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 (2 x 1GB)
- 2 SATA HDD running RAID
The rest should be pretty much standard unless I missed out something.
I am not planning to overclock nor SLI/Crossfire. This rig should last for about 4-5 years. The monitor I now have is a 19" LCD. I am not thinking of upgrading it in the near future, so I guess 4830 should suffice for now. Please give some comments and recommendations would be helpful. Thanks in advance guys.
Dont know about the power draw(i believe it is more than ample though), just to say make sure you have a few SATA convertors lying around as this has only 1, and 2xHDD 1xOptical means you will need at least 2 molex > SATA.
Apologies if you noticed this already - fell into this trap recently myself.
