    A quality 500watt would run it just fine. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703035


    Wow, that was a really fast reply. :) Now it says it's compatible with a sandy bridge proccessor, is it also compatible with Ivy Bridge? Reading around, I don't see anything saying it is, or isn't.

    It will work perfectly fine with the Ivy Bridge processors, not sure why manufacturers state such things when it really works with all processors.

    And this is exactly why I asked. It was stated as if it would not work with an Ivy Bridge. Thanks for the info.
