What wattage for all these gadgets?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233 Case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727 CPU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314 RAM

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138362 MOBO

Not sure if I could go for a good 520 watt or if I'd need to up it to a 600 watt.

Also any suggestions of a good solid psu around the $60 range? Thanks. All the name brands I looked up seemed to have their troubles with the consumer feedback. Some had horror stories about the bright lights coming from the case.

  1. this PSU is $60 after the promo code and will handle your PC with no issue

    an even better model (same power on the 12v rail that will power your CPU/GPU as the cx600) and its cheaper

    if you want something modular, this OCZ is $65 but has an MIR also

  2. A good 500w PSU will be more than enough for those components :)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 <- I highly recommend. It has a 15% discount at the moment too!

    Also, I will recommend a WD Black series of drives as the Greens are more meant for storage use applications.

    You fast rabbit! You beat me to it! :lol:
  4. Both of the units above are good, important thing to know regarding the antec is that it does NOT ship with a power cord, this isn't a problem if you are replacing an existing system or have a box of them sitting around but it is important to know if this is your very first system. If you don't have one ask a techy friend, i have a box of them at home and a drawer full at work.


    Overall your system is only going to need like 300 W max from the wall, i have a similar set up and when i had my 4850 in my system never pulled more than 300 W, i swapped it out for a 7850 which has almost the same TDP.


    Edit: on that note, has anyone actually figured out something good to do with the spare power cables? I've debated just collecting until i have like 20 pounds worth and turning them in as scrap.

    Actually I'm in need of one! :lol: Give to the needy? -puppy eyes- jkjk :na:

    But in all seriousness, I have no clue what to do with them if I had extras.
  6. tie up your spare cables and had them out at Halloween to annoying neighborhood kids instead of candy
  7. ^ LOL!!!
