Hi I am helping my cousin build a new gaming rig. I helped him pick out all the parts but I feel like I've overlooked something as important as the power supply. Im worried that 600w will not be enough to support all that he has.Do I need something with more power? Please Please Please be help me with your honest opinions. Thank You. Here is an outline of the products he got for his computer.
Wow, Thank you all for your help! Yes my cousin already bought all the parts. I just started worrying when I read that the GTX460 needed a minimum 450w psu. And yes, next time I will definitely come here for help before making a new build. Thank you all once again for your help. <3
^ lol. The thing is these PSU Calcs are WAY over estimating the PSU because they are not taking in to account Continuous power ratings instead they take in to account the MAX power rating. For a low quality/mid quality, 850W would be about right as if they get close to the full load they die. For example, a cr@ppy 400W DiabloTek PSU CAN NOT provide close to 300W.
