Hi,

I'm about to build a new system based around a q9550 and gtx 285, and I'm a little confused about the amount of power it will need. My graphics cards box recommends a 550w PSU. Will that be enough? Or should I go for a bit more?

Okay... First I would recommend at least a 650w PSU.

Second... Do you already have the Q9550 or using it to start the build with? If you don't already have the q9550, I would recommend looking at a AM3 955 build or Core i7 depending on your budget.
