Is a Thermaltake Litepower 700W good enough to run my system at full power?
Specs: Powercolor Radeon HD 6850
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz
4gb of transcend DDR3 RAM
Seagate Barracuda 160gb

Technically it should be overkill, however Thermaltake makes very shoddy PSUs that are of such horrible quality they can't cope with even low-end systems.

It should be fine.

helltech is right (on both counts of the PSU build and its ability), i doubt you break 315w gaming with that system.

for the price of the thermaltake, you can get the antec 520w or 620w PSU and not have to worry about PSU questions.

Ehh... are you looking to BUY a Thermaltake Litepower? If so can I suggest a 450 to 550w PSU of good build?


I'll try to read your mind. you're probably gonna say Corsair, that brand hasn't been seen in my country yet, nor did Antec. All we have are: Chieftec, LC Power, CoolerMaster, Thermaltake PSU's

Some CoolerMaster PSUs aren't too bad (some are but some aren't) out of the brands you listen they are the best.
