Antec Earthwatts 380 Continuous good enough 4 my upgrade?

I need some final opinions and information. Will Antec Earthwatts 380w Continous be enough for this system?

Athlon II X2 3.2ghz Regor 65w

ASRock 880GM-LE AMD Micro ATX

PowerColor AX4650 1GB DDR3 128bit(reqs 350w PSU)

Patriot 4gb(2x2gb) DDR3 1333

Seagate Barracuda 500gb 7200rpm

Combo DVD/CD burner/drive

1x 80mm fan(Gotta upgrade eventually heh)

Keyboard/mouse

Also....is the 380w continuous 380 as peak also or is just at least 380 and goes up to 450 or something?

  1. It will be fine imo.
    It's a good quality unit and i've read some forums with people using stronger gpu's with it no problem.
    The 4650's recommended 350W covers all the crappy psu's out there.
    Your psu doesn't fall in that category.
  2. plenty of power for your system. you can even power the GTX 460 with it. it peaks above 380w.

  3. that is a good psu, you will be fine. its 380w continuous, probably could do 450w for a short amount of time if well cooled.
  4. Ok cool cause the last thread I posted I had gotten a raidmax 550 and everything went the hades so I guess Ill sell the rest of my junk and order the 380 tommorrow. Thank you all very much! :D
