Hey everyone, I'd like to ask out for some help regarding computer components upgrade.
So uhm, at the moment i have an really old pc that is just crying for hardware upgrade. I'm planning to upgrade mobo, gpu, cpu, ram.
My current selection is:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 965 Black Edition
RAM: DDR3 Crucial Ballistix Sport 4GB 1333MHz CL9 1.5V x 2
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3
GPU: Gainward GeForce GT 430, 1GB
I know that gpu isn't the best one, but I'm not that much a gamer, so that doesn't matter.
What troubles me, will the current selection be handled by a 350w PSU, considering that it has only 20 pin main power connector and 4pin connector on +12V rail, whereas mobo requires 24 pin for main connector + 8 pin for + 12 V rail? P.S. Other components that would leech power of psu are fans, usb, and a SATA I 7200 rpm hdd.
You could use a new one. Newegg has a corsair 430w for around $35 after rebate that should work better, but my old antec 350w could probably run your setup also (it's well made). What brand of ps do you have?
Btw, i was just checking out some PSU's. Is this one good:?
Enermax PRO82+ 425W
Also, in the PSU description it is stated that it has:
+12V 4+4-pin (EPS12V) count: 1 - would this fit into the 8pin cpu power port, on my selected mobo?
Uhm, are there any real advantages in going for single 12V rail PSU in contrast with multirail one ?
Vendor link is of no use, as its in my native country language. Tho, it stated in the listing, that the PSU is " Refurbished by Manufacturer ". God or bad in the current situation? Also, i think the price is too high, its around 42$ currently?
