PSU advice needed for gaming ITX Rig Tags: Power Supplies Gaming Components Last response: January 10, 2011 3:00 PM in Components Share pbrain January 9, 2011 1:04:41 PM hello, i'm building a very small micro-ITX, portable gaming system. here's the specs so far... Zotac 9300 ITX @ 300 FSB, 4Gb (2x2Gb) Corsair Dominator @ 1200 Mhz & E5300 @ 3.9 Ghz GT 9800 Green graphics card (i really wanted to use a GTX 460 Razor - single slot ) No CD or DVD drive and a single 1.5 or 2TB 3.5" HDD (i use Steam for gaming) I've bought a fantastically small ITX case, the only problem is...it has a micro-ATX PSU of 250W at the moment. The best replacements i've seen so far are... Be Quiet 350W micro-ATX http://www.scan.co.uk/products/350w-be-quiet-bn134-80-p... or Colours IT 500W micro-ATX http://www.scan.co.uk/products/500w-colours-it-micro-at... The 'Be Quiet' is rated at 350W, yet has a 12v of 30A total, looks a better build. The 'Colours IT' is rated at 500W, but only has a 12v of 27A total! ...as you can see the CPU & MB is overclocked & i'm hoping to overclock the 9800GT Green GPU as well. will any of these PSU's be OK? i've no idea on these manufacturers, i normally use Enermax or Corsair PSU's, but they don't do micro-ATX type as far as i know. many thanks More about : psu advice needed gaming itx rig pbrain January 10, 2011 3:00:14 PM sorry to bump, i really need to know which one (if any) is suitable for this project.
