Jun 9, 2012, 9:20 PM
Hi, i´m putting a basic gaming pc together and have doubts regarding the PSU.
this are the specs:
ANTEC 300 ILLUSION CASE
AMD FX 4100
XFX RADEON 6870
CORSAIR VENGEANCE 8 GB (2X4GB) DDR 3
ASUS M5A97 EVO MOTHERBOARD
SEAGATE MOMENTUS XT 500 GB
SONY OEM DVD DRIVE
For this I´m buying a Corsair Builder Serieas CX V2 500 PSU
Different wattage calculators say different amounts of power are requiered
Do you guys think it will be enough?
