Cpu and compatibility question

Hey, I'm going to upgrade some parts of my rig but I need to make sure that this psu can provide enough power for the parts and that the mother board is compatible with the cpu.
I tried my hardest to figure it own via research, but i gave up and decided to ask the experts.



Help, please? i'd really appreciate it.

    Yea your fine, 550W is plenty of power.

    That chip can consume 125W under load, and in a worst case scenario the mobo/RAM will consume 30W. From reviews, a 660 will consume roughly 200W under load, which is about right for a mid-range card.

    So a worst case scenario has ~355W being drawn on the 12v rail, considering that Seasonic PSU can give up to 540W on the 12v, I think your all good.

  3. That was amazing, thank you. I love how you broke it down for me.
    Is there anyway i can give you positive karma or something?

    There's a points system on the forums, posting gets us something like 3 points, and a best answer gets 20, more points equals a better rank. And if I didn't already have a gold Systems badge, would also contribute toward getting better medals.
