  4. im not at home for awhile so this is the best i can do


    Intel® DQ57TM vPro Motherboard

    Intel Core i5 Processor 3.1 ghz

    Dual Channel DDR3-1333MHz RAM

    Up to 1.5TB SATA Hard Drive

    and the reason I need a new power supply is becuase im getting a new graphics card
  5. And just what would that new card be? No single graphics card setup needs 700 watts. Are you going to sli?

    600 watts minimum would a 650 watt be enough?

    OP has only one x16 slot on his micro-ATX board so SLI is physically impossible.

    Unless he wants a dual-GPU card, a good 450W PSU would be more than enough. From power benchmarks I remember seeing, a modern high-end single-GPU system maxes out at around 350W wall power.
  8. A decent 600 watt unit is plenty
