Hello Tomshardware, long time since i've posted here and i've got a quick question regarding my PSU on a little upgrade i'm doing.
Current setup is:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
EVGA GTX 460 SE 1GB
Antec EarthWatts 650W
Seagate ST3750630AS 750GB 3.5 3H SATA HDD
Antec Case Fans 2x
Generic HP Case 16 X 16 X 8
Now this is a good Christmas gift for myself, but i'm concerned about what my PSU can handle. I've yet to Overclock my 965 BE as well, and with the Heatsink I fully intend to do it. Can my poor Antec weather this upgrade?
(I also intend to grab a new case along with all of this, Hohoho.)
you should be looking at getting a SSD for disk replacement for speed (boot to Win7 in under 30s with all background processes loaded easy) - HDDs are only good for capacity nowadays - unless you need an extra 2GB storgage space.
PSU will be fine - could even bolt an SLI config in there without any sweat
