Would anyone else like to comfirm that this psu would run this system fine with two monitors, I did a psu calculator on ASUS website and they said this system needs about 260w MAX Power with everything running 100%, so it seems like it will be fine, last thing I want is to blow a part or the whole system just because I have to HD monitors running.

I don't see why your concerned. Monitor have their own PSU, they don't run off the computers PSU. The Corsair 400W is a good PSU, and will handle your components just fine.

Thanks 4745454b, It was just a friend of mine said that when you connect a monitor it uses some of the computer power to run, and said that it wouldn't be able to handle 2 monitors at once and could blow, thats why I thought I would ask you guys as you know more about computers, thanks for your replies.

The worst you could do is cause your GPU to work a bit harder trying to display an image on both screens. This shouldn't be a problem however as the Corsair 400W has plenty of the power that the 5770 needs.

All of us "old timers" have a join date of 1970. Its a bug in the system. I think I really joined back in my college days of the late 1990s. Been using these things since I was a kid working on my 286.

Bloody hell, thats still a long time, but just shows how effect these forums are if people have been he for 3 decades, Its good to have somewhere to go and ask the questions you don't know and get a legit answer from someone who does know.

Thanks again.
