Hi,

I had a Gateway LX-6810. I ordered a Core i7 2600k, Gigabyte GA-H67MA-UD2H , and G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) Model F3-10666CL7D-8GBRH to build a new system. I'll take everything else from the LX-6810, except video card, as LGA 1155 H67 enables me to use the CPU one.

My question is will the power supply be enough for my material? I don't plan on gaming, but maybe do some Photoshop and video encoding.

The power supply spec : http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=CSPGATPS640134...
The original Gateway spec: http://www.gateway.com/systems/product/529668232.php

If you have any other remark or compatibility issue on what I want to do, you're welcome!

Thanks!

Max

Do you really want to risk your investment on a $30 power supply? Theres no mention of power factor correction (PFC), Over voltage, under voltage, or short circuit protection...

Here is the minimum quality most here I suspect would recommend.
