With your current components, assuming you dont have a video card you would need a 300-350 watt power supply. But that doesnt mean much without more info on your needs etc. Ajdeegan April 24, 2012 8:36:04 PM My budget would be about £450 My usage would be about 5hours every day I do not know what a time frame is I would just want it to play games like minecraft and world of warcraft Related resources What CPU Shall I Buy?? - Forum What Power Supply do i need for this gaming computer ? - Forum What shall i upgrade for better gaming performance? - Forum What Power Supply Should I Use? - Forum what shall i upgrade, graphics or RAM? - Forum Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer kulladoctor April 24, 2012 8:44:39 PM Your choices seem compatible, but... Will you do a lot of multitasking, or run VMs? The 4 core AMD processor you have is better for such tasks, while a 2 core i3 2120 will be better for games. It will also consume less power. You can double check your power requirements using this link: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.js... But I feel that a 350 watt power supply should be more than enough. Make sure you get a 80plus certified one.
