cpu [a10-5800k]

mobo [m-itx]

ram [gskill 2x4gb DDR3 2133]

optical [blue ray]

graphics card [6670, already owned will use for dual graphics]

hard drive [run of the mill 7200rpm mechanical]

might add an ssd in the future

i want to know the approximate power supply draw for the build. i would like to slightly OC the cpu and integrated gpu, ill have to see tyhe thermal threshold with a slimline heatsink to see how high i can go. the integrated gpu runs exponentially better with high speed ram thus justifying my ram choice. i may or may not go with blue ray as i already have a dvd-rw, ssd will probably go into it in the future

I'd estimate 300W tops. 350-400W with OC.

I'd reccommend a 400W PSU.

ill go with a 450w, there are some descent prices on 80+ gold psus for that wattage that are pretty highly rated

typically power requirement calculators are drastically off, especially with newer more power efficient components
