My specs right now:

intel core 2 quad q8200 2.3ghz

Nvidia gt220 low profile fan
some relativly small case , link : http://tiny.cc/ut6rs { google images }
some shitty 250 watter

  1. I trust the guy above. Good brands, good quality parts. I have the 600W modxstream and love it. I also used to own the antec 300 with my radeon 4850 that exhausted back into the case. Very nice.
    If you are into efficiency, this is a nice power supply. A good quality PSU should be able to handle your setup easily. You don't need a massive amount of wattage.

    Measures on full load furmark and prime95 my overclocked Athlon IIx4 3.2GHz and slightly overclocked 4850 topped out at drawing ~ 220W from the wall. Take into account efficiency of the modxstream, which I believe is 86% at the most, the computer is only drawing 190W.

    I did think a lower powered psu would do but then looking at the prices it seemed the higher wattage was the way to go.

    I also own the Mod700 and the Antec 300 and can't fault them in any way.
  3. Yeah a good 500 watter is the way to go if you ever intend to upgrade that video card.
