I am trying to put a system together and these are what I am considering to put in:
Intel Core i5 750 Quad-Core Socket LGA1156
Asus P7P55D LE Socket 1156 Intel P55 Chipset CrossFireX
Asus ENGT220/DI/1GD2(LP) nVidia GeForce GT 220 Chipset
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series DDR3 1333MHz (PC3-10666) 4GB (2x2GB)
HardDrive Western Digital Caviar Blue (WD5000AAKS) 500GB
in addition there will be a few fans on the case and a couple of usbs connected all the time
Could you help me decide on a PSU now?? I have this one in mind:
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Power Supply (OCZ600MXSP)
I am just not sure if it will provide enough current as the 12V1 rail only provides 25amps?? I don't want to spend more $60-$65 max on the PSU.
Newegg has the 600W ModXStream listed as 80 before rebates. Consider the PSU an investment in a component that you dont have to upgrade every few years, and buy a good one to start with. This seasonic is a bit outside of your price range but it is a very good unit and very cost effective relative to the other good units in its power range. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
