More about calculating wired used
  1. Any decent brand 450w+ psu will have all the connections you need.

    PS green hdd's are terrible for general use (running OS and apps from)
  2. Are you looking for a power supply recommendation?

    Using a 5400rpm HDD as a boot/OS/Apps drive is a major dink in your build.
  3. get a faster hard drive and get a 500-550w psu
  4. I will take changing the HDD into mind. Can you please help me know what wires im going to use? This is so I can pick the best PSU that is suited for my build.

    That's determined more by power needs than power connector needs, a good quality psu that has the power required, will have the connectors required ( and then some ).
    If you're not into having extra's go fully modular.
  6. Well I dont have the money for that. I would like to know what pins and wires my build will be taking. As for HDD im going with Seagate 1TB 32MB SATA300
  7. plan on overclocking? possibly SLI? game alot? then 650+
    and with specials and discounts these are pretty inexpensive to have.
    when OC you'll want to make sure that you have enough to supply the CPU, graphics card(s) and RAM when under a load. a good inexpensive PSU is the antec earthwatt series. you dont have to worry about modular yet, unless you are display your case.

  9. 20+4pin atx lead
    8pin Cpu lead
    two 6pin pcie leads
    two sata power leads
    and several molex 4pin connectors for your fans that are not connected to the motherboard,


    read the Psu sticky for some more guidance but as dell has already stated, you should focus on the power requirements watt-wise, and any Psu of the level you require will have sufficient connectors
