HI people. I have had my CPU for about 2 years now and wanted to get a new chip...without spendind a ton of $$$. I was wondering if my focket fish 500W PSU could support and i7 920 and an ati 5700*overclocked. The box of my PSU says 600 PEAk and 500W continuous. Any suggestions?

Thanks Chumpoholic

Will it run into any problems or does it meet the requirments for the proecessor. Because I couldn't find out how much intake the the i7 took.

Size wise it is big enough, meets the min requirement and some. The difference between CPU's is not drastic, it is more or less the GPU that dictates the size of the PSU. Here is a I5 system with HD5770 consuming 207watts under load http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-5770,2446...

Go through the HardwareSecrets PSU reviews for all the Huntkey/Rocketfish models that burned and make sure yours isn't one of them.
