So, I have a budget gaming system that has been running for about six months with an Antec Earthwatts 380w PSU. Here are the specs:
-Pentium Dual-Core e5200
-1 SATA HD
-1 DVD burner
There are 2 small upgrades I want to make. I used an online PSU calculator and it looks like the PSU can support what I want to do, but I thought I should look for advice. The calculator said the system with 4890 would only need about 260w.
1) Overclock e5200 to 3.0Ghz and add 2 GB memory
2) Add 4890
Will the Earthwatts 380w be sufficient? Keep in mind it has 27A for the dual 12v rails.
