Hey guys, im looking to salvage my 505GR case and need to know what size motherboards will fit. ATX, Micro-ATX, or ITX mini. Ive been searching a while now and cant find a hillabeans on this motherboard.
Yes, a single fan is not enough for most gaming cards really. You need one fan pushing air into the front and one pulling it out the back, at least. You don't have to spend a bunch. If you like the size of the case $40 can get you something around that size with two good fans.... or get this combo deal that will get you a very well cooled full sized case and a PSU that will handle most gaming cards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
The Rosewill Green Series is built by ATNG and considered by most experts to be solid and acceptable. Often recommended for budget builds. The rest of their PSUs are not really adequately examined. Probably the Stallion series is poor.
With the Antec being arguably the best and the Cosair being the lowest quality of the three (but still good).
If you aren't going to have a high end gaming card then you can get by with a bit less power. These 4 PSUs I would rank just like they cost, with he Seasonic being top-of-the-line at 430W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|17-182-202^17-182-202-TS%2C17-371-034^17-371-034-TS%2C17-139-026^17-139-026-TS%2C17-151-074^17-151-074-TS
I hope those long URLs work, they are newegg comparisons.
Yes it's safe. When gaming I rarely break 300W, and yet I have a Seasonic X650. Using programs designed to put maximum stress on my CPU and GPU I reach about 385W. You can see my full configuration by clicking the "more information" link just under my avatar.
