  1. The processor alone drains hardly any power. we need to know what else is on your system, most importantly the GPU.
  2. I want to build this setup

    Core i5 750
    Asus P7P55D
    HD HIS 5850
    320 GB SEGATE HARD DRIVE
    4 GB CORSAIR XMS 3
  3. for that, i would recommend a good 550w PSU, such as the corsair vx550.

    corsair PSUs are some of the best, high quality and efficient. with an excellent warranty. and a 550w should be plenty for your system.
  4. But i think that will cross my budget of $1000.I have to get a casing and dvd rom too.I think i will go with 550 watt!
