Hello, guys.
I have a quetion for you. I'm buying a new processor Phenom II X4 965 BE. My question:
is 450W Power Supply enough, i mean will it handle it for some time (without OC)??
My specs: (for now),

TakeMe 450 W,
Dual Core e5200,
Asus mobo (will be changed for MSI with AM3 socket),
XFX HD 6770
Seagate 500GB
Corsair Vengeance Blue 8196 MB (2x4gb)

I await your replies,

Alex. :)

450W is fine but PSU makers lie and I have never heard of "takeme". It's very common to see a 450W that blows up at 350W with bad manufactures.

I owe you a beer, bro.


You need a minimum of 330W but don't take any chances, get a good quality 400-500W PSU made by people like Corsair or Seasonics, they might be more expensive but are less likely to destroy your PC or kill you or waste you money like cheap company power supplys.

Not sure what model your power supply is, on the side of your PSU there is a sticker somewhere, type what it says about volts and amps (3.3v- 48A for example).
