500w PSU Enough For My PC?
Oct 22, 2012, 3:48 PM
Hi guys, new here, i though i'd ask a questions as many of the posts here are answered correctly.
So i am buying an OCZ StealthxStream 500W PSU with these specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 965BE
I've seen many people who have GTX 670 w/ I5's using 500w PSU's.
Will the PSU run the PC without any problems?

A 500 watt power supply is the minimum for either video card just don't try to do much overclocking. For two video cards no.

dont use a low quality unit like that. use this instead
and the 965 is a potential bottleneck of the system. use something like a i5 3450. the 965 isnt quite powerful enough but it will do
and here is some cheap and good ram. intel branded ram looks stupid in a AMD rig but it works
