Power consumption of Phenom II 955

Hello everyone. Given the components: Phenom II 955 (oc'ed to 3.6) and, let's say, ATi's 5850. What's the proper Power Supply for this combo? Max fan would be Coolermaster V8. Or any other alternatives that are cheaper but better?

  1. An decent 400W would even do it, but if you want to crossfire that HD5850, go for a quality 650W.
  2. I recommend you a quality 500W PSU with one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCIe connectors.

    If you are thinking about doing 5850CF with two cards, then go for a quality 600W PSU with two 8-pin and two 6-pin PCIe connectors.

    You can find very good options in the PSU Review Database (see my signature)
  3. sure it will be enough? don't forget - it'll be OC'ed to 3.6 (maybe to 3.8, but most probably to 3.6)

    The phenom 955 OCed draws 150W, while the HD5850 draws about 130W on load even when you account 50W from everything else, its just 330W.
