Can This Antec Neo HE 430Watts handle core i7??

Hey, Iam building a new PC and I was wondering if this Antec Neo HE 430W handle the core i7 I'am building. Here are the specs

Intel Core i7 920
Asus P6T deluxe
G.Skill F3-12800 CL9T 3GB
2 Seagate Hard drives (250 gb x 150 gb)
1 External Hard drive (250 gb)
Dvd-r Writer
Xifi sound blaster
Geforce 7600 gs
Coolermaster Cm 690
Stock Fan

Well Iam kinda short on cash, and iam planning to buy a new graphics card and a new PSU later on ,, but until then can my antec PSU support this system ,,

Thankx

  2. Yes that 430w psu should be enough. i7 only uses 125w max i believe.
  3. It appears it will be fine. The cpu isn't what consumes the power, it's the video card. However, that's not a beast of a video card and won't suck much power.

    If you plan to upgrade your video card, you should look into upgrading that psu. Antec is known for good psu's, but that isn't one of them.

    Shouldn't be a problem if the psu is still good.

    Absolutely not. i7 needs at lest 500w. :hello:


    We must be reading different things.....All of the reviews that I've seen put the i7 920 around 130w and ~260w on load

    And that was with the 920 paired up with a GTX280, a card that uses about 6 times the amount of power of the OP's 7600 GS :pt1cable:
