  1. 500 watts is plenty for that system, but not all watts are created equal.

    Be sure to get a quality power supply. A good 400w would probably suffice, but I would go with 500w just to have some headroom.
  2. im considering getting Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w Power Supply. is this good enough for my GPU, MOBO, and CPU?
  3. Cooler master doesn't do well in testing.

    Try Something like:

  4. what if i said i already bought it. would it still be ok? like will last me awhile without breaking anything?
