I have an 80+ Gold LEPA, 500 Watts. It says on the box it has a "12 V rail with 18 A output that supports next gen 6-core processors", so I assumed it would be mean enough to do the job.
I hear the GTX 460 and the Radeon 6850 are each closer to 130 W... And they should be able to handle things like the Mass Effect games or Diablo III. I just don't want to be nervous when plugging in 3 external hard drives simultaneously, not to mention MP3-player charging & syncing. Yes I plan on making this a gaming rig, but I also want it to be a multi-tasking workstation. I'll slash my graphics if it means I can run lots of peripherals.
Huh... for some reason my ISP is blocking that website, I get this odd error page.
