  1. Yes. Thats a pretty weak video card though.
  2. 3 different power supply calculators all say you're safe.

    I'd go with this one over the Cooler Master, by reputation and ratings, but your call.

  3. That PSU is fine. However, if you have some extra cash then a good PSU goes a long way... you can add it to the preowned list the next time you do a build.

    Shark recommends a good Seasonic... but I'd go with a PSU with some more power. Try for a 600W+ Silver/Gold PSU that you can afford. It will last you years and you can upgrade your card in the future without worry.

    good idea..... http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028

    and i will ask my builder to put a ATI Radeon HD 6850 in instead...he has one used that he is not using and hopefully he can give it to me cheap, but i am not a game :) but still good to have amazing graphics if i can get em cheap. what do u guys think about this now??? Good?

    That's definitely a more future proof plan!
    Here's the PSU I'm using, 620W, Bronze certified and modular.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095&Tpk=SeaSonic%20M12II%20620

    You can go Silver certified and get up into the 700W range, but that Seasonic is already almost 2x cost of the one you had picked and plenty powerful enough.
  6. The Seasonic 620W is more efficient, better overall ratings and modular which is nice, but your system your call. The Corsair is also not as powerful.
  7. That's more than enough power, but 1) Cooler Master is a junk brand and 2) The video card is not very good for gaming; I'd get something more powerful, and the 6850 sounds like a good choice for your level.

    If you don't plan to go any higher than the 6850, you can probably get by with even less power; I'd say 500W would be fine. But you will not do much better than that Corsair 600W model on sale for $45; that's a pretty awesome promo. I didn't even see anything in the 500W range that would have been cheaper in a reliable brand.

    Agreed. Coolermaster makes nice cases, nice CPU coolers, but seems like there are an awful lot of bad PSUs on this forum from them.
