Hello,
I am planning on making a build for pretty much gaming, I am going to use the amd phenom II x4 3.4 ghz with and asrock 970 extreme and a 550 ti graphic card, my question is how much watts do I need. I am looking at the Raidmax hybrid 530 watts and dont know if that enough. Thank you

ah okay, cool. I was worried I might have got one less than what I need, also I think I should have added, that in order to use my ram (8gb ddr3) at 1600 mhz i would need to OC. Would 530 watts still be enough then? Thanks btw

Hi :) 

Overclocking the ram or graphics card makes no difference to power...ANY 500.. etc

Personally I would go for a better graphics card though...

All the best Brett :)

I am shopping from newegg, so Idk if there are any better sites, but as far as i know, newegg is the way to go, except im kinda scared im going to get a doa item
