Solved New build - PSU and memory question Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: April 27, 2011 1:04 AM in Systems Share dtxace April 20, 2011 1:17:12 PM Will the 450W PSU in this case handle this configuration? I'm planning on using integrated video and external USB3.0 drive for storage. Is there a better memory selection for this setup? Thanks for your feedback.

PSU wise it depends on the brand. There's a major difference btwn a cheap 450W PSU and a good 450w PSU. A 450W seasonic for example can run it fine, while a 450w diablotek would not. If you're in the US, newegg has a great deal on their x650 for $100 right now, which puts it at the same price as their 460W 80+ gold.

If you want a cheaper PSU, this Earthwatts 430 is $45, and fine for your system. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... boiler1990 April 20, 2011 3:00:22 PM Do you already have the parts you've listed? I would advise against the 2500K for an H67 setup, since you can't OC on the H67 boards.

My plan is to OC the on-board GPU. The small form factor is a critical requirement, as a result I need to keep the power consumption/heat as low as possible. boiler1990 April 20, 2011 6:22:20 PM Why not purchase an inexpensive dedicated GPU? I don't see your plan. dtxace April 27, 2011 1:04:53 AM Best answer selected by dtxace. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
