Intel DX58SO motherboard
Intel Core i7 920 "Nehalem" S1366 2.66GHz 4.8GT/s 8MB L3 Cache
Kingston 6GB PC3-10600 Kit (3x2GB) DDR3-1333
LG 22X DVD+-RW Drive SATA (Black)
Western Digital Caviar Green 1.0TB SATA-II 3.5" 32MB
Asus Radeon HD 4870 Dark Knight 1GB PCIe
Antec New Solution NSK6580B Super Mid-Tower w/ Earthwatts 430W PSU
So this is what I've ordered. The default system had 3GB of RAM, a 640 GB Caviar Blue 16 MB HD, and the 512 MB version of the 4870. I tried asking this question on the Gamespot forums and got called a "noob", so I figured I should come here. Is the Earthwatts 430 enough for this setup? I know if I wanted to Crossfire this setup then I'd need more, but for now will this work?
If you have another $15.00, then you can get the Corsair VX 550 watt power supply which is a high quality psu. It has a single large +12 volt rail rated at 41 amps. Here is a link to a technical review over at JonnyGuru.com:
Thanks for the input, everybody. What I'm hearing is that it should do the job as long I've got a single card in there and I don't overclock anything (I wasn't planning to anyway), but it's preferable to get something with a bit more juice. I'll see if I can change my order around.
