Does my CPU have enough juice to run my rig.

Hey guys I need a little help.

I'm buying a new rig and am going to be salvaging old parts as well as buying new parts. What I got so far is...

Tp3-550 antec CPU.
M5a97 pro asus motherboard.
Amd fx 8150 black edition processor 3.6ghz with stock fan.
Evga gtx 560 superclocked graphics card.
8gb ram.
500gb hard drive.
250gb hard drive.
Antec three hundred midi case (120mm + 140mm fan)

Will this CPU be enough to cope with all of this?

Thanks in advance.

  1. u will be fine
  2. I don't quite understand your question. Are you asking if the fx8150 is fast enough to not be a bottle neck?

    Seriously you're asking if the 3.6ghz 8-core processor will bottleneck a gtx 560? Don't worry about it :D
  4. Sorry no I worded it wrong.

    Will the power from the tp3-550 be enough to run the setup or will I need to upgrade to a 650-750?

    Sorry complete technophobe.

    CPU is the processor, what you're talking about is the PSU (power supply unit). You should be fine with 550w.
  6. Brilliant thank you.
