Just need to be reassured that this will run my system at peak performance when gaming , i initially thought to get a higher wattage model but i thought this will be enough , Also i am going from an Alpine 750W power supply to this model i have linked below but i wanted to know if my new 550W Can handle my system for awhile without straining and blowing up on me if yes then how can it handle my system if it is 200W Lower than my old one and how much wattage roughly would i have spare , i have used this (eXtreme Power Supply Calculator Lite) but i am still not sure if it is accurate enough.
AMD FX 4100 3.6GHZ Black Edition
Kingston Hyper X Blu 2x4GB DDR3 1333MHZ RAM
Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 550TI 1GB PCIe 2.0 X16
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM SATA HDD
SATA Optical Drive DVD-RW-CD-RW Combo
TP Link Wireless Network Card 150MBPS PCIe x1
2x 120MM 2000RPM Blue LED FAN
OLD DC Fan Contoller Which says it uses 12V?
Yes no problem the XFX is built by seasonic and will handle your system no worries.For a system with a single GeForce GTX 550 Ti NVIDIA recommends a minimum of a 400 Watt or greater power supply with a minimum +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and with at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.
ahh thanks alot dude i kept writing this question on yahoo answers but i kept getting mixed answers like it will run your system fine , then other people saying you need a 600-700w and another person saying you need a 750w i was so confused , do you know how much watts i will have spare say if i want to upgrade my gpu , and how can this run my system if it is a 550W When my other was a 750W , 200W Difference?
