    A bit overkill for your needs but there's no problem with that.

    Seasonic Bronze S12II-620 620W

    You can't use your DDR2 on that new mobo, you need some DDR3 RAM.

    Thanks for the reply I knew about the ram and one last thing over does that mean I wont get full power or will it damage my system thanks again for your help
  3. No, you can get any PSU you want, it's only about the cost.
  4. it means you won't even use 400w of total system power during gaming

    Test System Specs: Hardware
    - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 3.00GHz (LGA775)
    - x2 Kingston HyperX 2GB PC2-8500 Module(s)
    - ASUS P5Q Deluxe (Intel P45)



    a quality 500w+ PSU with 37a+ on its 12v will be more then enough power for you. look for brands like antec, ocz, corsair, seasonic, enermax, silverstone

  6. Hi,
    please goto asus.com
    support
    power calculator
    check you power consumption first.
    And FYI Seasonic is a pick of crap.
