I have hdd / dvd rom / case / monitor already. Is 500W psu enough considering that cpu going to be overclocked?

Anything else I should be concerned about? Keep in mind this is a budget build.

  1. That looks really awesome and yes that is enough power
  2. you could make this a crossfire ready setup for about $30 more, but that may not interest you. there are also better deals on good 500w psus, like:

    People report vent problem on that unit.
  4. true. id still go for it, but i can definitely see why you wouldnt want to.
  5. Your video card alone is asking for a 450w psu. I would suggest more than a 50 spare watt buffer for everything else you have to power. I built my first PC last month with a very similar setup, same cpu and gpu. My video card asked for at least 500w so i got a 650w psu. Nothing wrong with a little extra leg room. You can find a 600w - 700w for around the same price. That's the route I would take, then again.... I built my first pc last month. :pt1cable:
  6. They just recommend 450w in general. It doesn't mean only gpu would consume 450w, that would be crazy sir!
  7. zotac draws 330 at load see link below. 500w should be fine but if you have a little more cash I'd get something a little higher for better efficency as running close to full power on PSU is less efficent than running at 80%
