Here is my build.

Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 810

Motherboard: ASUS 785TD-V-EVO

RAM: 4GB Transcend DDR3(5200Rs)

Graphics: Sapphire 5850 HD (1GB)

Hard Disk: 500GB & 250GB Seagate SATA

Monitor: Samsung 2033 (20" LCD Screen)


Is CoolerMaster Silent Pro M600W enough for this Build?

Also What UPS rating is needed if I want to connect my brother's DELL Inspiron 1520(battery dead) to the UPS too? Will 800VA be enough for both PC and Laptop?

The general rule of thumb is a high quality 500 to 550 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the 12 volt rail(s) can easily power a system with any single video card made. A high quality 700 to 750 watt power supply with sufficient current (amps) on the 12 volt rail(s) can power a system with two video cards operating in dual mode. There are a few exceptions like the new ATI Radeon HD 5000 series cards which use less power due to their energy efficiency.

A high quality 500 to 550 watt psu will have a +12 volt rail rated at 40 amps. A high quality 700 to 750 watt psu will have a +12 volt rail rated at 60 amps.

In addition the power supply should be at least 80+ Bronze certified for energy efficiency.

Here are the official power requirements for the new ATI Radeon HD 5850 and HD 5870 video cards.


ATI Radeon™ HD5850 System Requirements:

PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard

500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended

600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode


ATI Radeon™ HD5870 System Requirements:

PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard

500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended

600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode

The power supply recommendations are for an entire pc system.


You will be okay with the Coolermaster Silent Pro M600W power supply. It is a very good psu with a single large +12 volt rail rated at 40 amps. Here is a link to a technical review:

Not for both.

I recommend a minimum of 1,000 VA so long as you quite any heavy loads (like gaming) the instant the UPS takes over supplying power and shut things down.
