Power Supply for unlocked Phenom II x2 555 and following specs


I just bought the Phenom II x2 555 BE although it should have been a x4 955. The Phenoms on the stores are all out of stock(some phased out) and this x2 555 BE is the only remaining one in stock.

As soon as I get over the warranty limit, I'm planning to unlock it. But I wish to know if the PSU and mobo will make it through.

Right now I have an unlocked Sempron 140(unlocked to Athlon II x2 4400e) and I've been using this for almost two years.

These are the mobo and video card specs

Mobo: Biostar A780L v6.1 http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=472#dl
VC: AMD Radeon HD 6750 1GB

PSU: A generic 600W

Now, if I unlocked Phenom II x2 555 Black Edition which I believe results into a Phenom II x4 955, will one of these PSU suffice for the unlocking of 3rd or fourth core?

FSP Hexa 500W

Antec Neo

I'm really intrigued by the Assassin's Creed 3. Most people who have high end rigs complain about low fps in Boston but my cousin who has Phenom II x2 555 played it well. He has a GeForce 440 gfx card.

Thanks for your time and also, I am open to suggestions. But please understand that I am not that rich to replace everything above I have right now. But am already looking forward to it once I really have the money and if I need to upgrade.

  1. I would go with the Antec in this case, it is plenty with its 40amps on the +12 volts.
