Cool, and the specs all match out so I shouldn't have any problems.. right?
I know the 600w powered everything OK in what I have, so the 650w should be OK, but I also know the voltages and such are important, and I saw some differences which I am not sure exactly how they work and relate.
Yeah, sorry I was thinking about adding the computer specs, but wasn't sure if they were needed since I was just comparing it to another PSU
The problem is that I can't turn the computer on to get all the specs and I built it a white ago so I'm not completely sure, but here's my best guess :-)
Nothing special, but it can handle what I do with it!
ATI 2400pro vid
AMD processor - 5200+ - I THINK... pretty sure it is a dual core... - I should remember, sorry...
I tried to find out from my newegg and mwave accounts, but I don't seem to have all the info, which is odd... but I am fairly sure this is the mobo if not pretty close
GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 nvidia nforce 570sli chipset serial ata300 ATX form factor 2xPCI-E(x16)/3xPCI-E(x1)/2xpci/4xddr2 w/sata2 raid,lan(gb),1394,usb 2.0 & audio (cpu type:amd - socket am2)
hmm really? 380w the 600w i currently have didn't last that long, I usually keep my desktop on close to 24/7.
if I am off even a little in remembering I don't want to under power the system.
If the 650w is really that much of an overkill I could go less, the nice thing about that 650w is it is cheaper, after rebates etc., then a 550w so I might as well go for the bigger and better, that way when I can upgrade my system I won't have to get a new one....
Hmmm I could stand to not spend that much at this time though, maybe I will try and find something smaller...
The sale must have just ended, it lists as $45 for me.
No worries about running a lower wattage but higher quality PSU.
Where low quality PSU's can almost never output their rated power, and what they can output is very dirty power, a high quality unit can easily handle more than their rated output.
Of the PSU's you list, I would recommend the Corsair 400w.
Excellent quality at a good price.
