Hi, I am pretty new to this so still struggling with my first build.
Anyway, I tried some online power supply calculators to determine what type of PSU I need, but I ended up with quite varied results. I probably don't need a very powerful one, but I want to make sure the one I have chosen will be enough.
My budget was around £500, but I guess I have to go a bit above that.
I don't need an OS or monitor as I already have them. I was just wondering if 1) the PSU will be enough, 2), the parts are all compatible and 3), the fans included with the case will be enough.
Dont expect to overclock at all. You have a locked CPU and a H61 board, both options that will stop you from overclocking. Only way to do it from there is through the FSB, which is a lot harder than through multipliers and wont go as far.
Believe me, you will eventually care about fan noise. After all, your going to be sitting next to the thing for a long time and very frequently.
