Solved How much wattage do i need for this build? Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: November 4, 2012 11:59 PM in Systems Share tomminater November 4, 2012 11:27:51 PM Hello! I'm trying to build my first gaming computer and i was wondering how much wattage i would need for my power supply. I'm on a budget though, so not a wattage to extreme or anything. I have these components: EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SUPERCLOCKED 2048MB GDDR5 DVI mHDMI DP Graphics Card 02G-P4-2662-KR Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I53570K SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5-Inch 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PC128B/WW CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 ASRock Z77 Pro4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard Any information would be helpful! Once again, im asking for how much wattage i should get given these components. Thank you!

Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, and XFX are usually safe brands to go with.

Get the answer larrym November 4, 2012 11:42:41 PM I have close to the same build and I'm using about 450 watts. I could add another 660 and still be ok with corsair cx600. anort3 November 4, 2012 11:59:21 PM A system with a single GTX 660 needs a recommended 430w power supply. To run 2 cards in Sli a 620w power supply is recommended. http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm Stick with Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ and Antec for quality models. tomminater November 4, 2012 11:59:33 PM Best answer selected by tomminater.
