4 Year old Enermax 485W PSU for new build... Tags: Power Supplies Enermax Components New Build Product Last response: October 1, 2011 8:45 AM in Components Share Rivewin September 30, 2011 9:55:05 PM I am in the process of looking into components for a new system I am working on putting together and I was hoping to salvage some pieces from my old system in the process. I have an Enermax 485W PSU that I bought about 4 years ago that I have hardly used but was curious as to possibly using it in the new system to save a few bucks. Here is a link for it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I have no idea about requirements on some of the newer components but was curious if you guys could help me figure out if this will be useable. I am looking at running an i5-2500k plus a Radeon 6870 or Nvidea 560 Ti. I am not looking to Crossfire or SLI currently, but would do so in the future and upgrade the PSU at that time. Any help would be appreciated on this. Thanks!

The PSU has 384W on the 12V rail. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
