Is this 500W good enough?
Aug 15, 2010, 5:29 AM
I have read excellent reviews on this PSU, some where folks said they replaced 600+PSU with this one and had greater stability.
Here is: OCZ OCZ500MXSP ModXStream Pro 500 Watt Power Supply
ASUS LGA 1366 - Intel X58 - True USB 3.0 & SATA 6Gb/s - ATX Motherboard P6X58D-E -
Intel Core i7 Processor i7-930 2.80GHz 8 MB LGA1366 CPU, Retail BX80601930 -
Sapphire Radeon HD5750 1 GB DDR5 2DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card 100284L -
Corsair 6 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz 240-Pin DDR3 Core i7 Triple Channel Memory Kit CMX6GX3M3A1600C9 -
Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive IHAS424-98 - Retail (Black) -
Seagate Barracuda 7200 1 TB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 Inch Internal Hard Drive ST31000528AS-Bare Drive
I am not planning on crossfire and will be doing a bit of 'lite' OC
I am at the top of my budget so it this will work that would help
