How much power would i need for Core 2 Quad Q8400?
How much power am i expected to need to power a Core 2 Quad Q8400? About the only thing that takes a chunk of power to work is my Gts 250 gfx card. im not sure how much power my system takes total but it consumes about 350 watts. Im useing a 500 watt PSU so should this be perfectly enough power to keep my system operational?
Also will it fit/work into my mobo or system all togather? Here my mobo specs.
IPIBL-LB (Benicia) Manufacturer: Asus Form factor: microATX - 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) x 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) Chipset: Northbridge chipset: Intel G33 Express Southbridge chipset: Intel ICH9R Memory sockets: 4 x DDR2 Front side bus speeds: 1333/1066/800 MHz Processor socket: 775 Expansion Slots: 1 PCI x16 slot (Used for GTS 250 atm) 1 PCI slot
The Socket is 775, and the Q8400 needs a LGA775 which should be the same as saying Socket T or just 775, just making sure though.

As long as it's decent quality, it should be fine. What PSU model do you have?
