Subject: Can this motherboard handle these specs?
I'm thinking of buying this power supply - Antec 430W Power Supply TRUE430

My current specs for building the computer are:
ASUS P4PE/R/L/SATA Motherboard for Intel P4 478
Crucial DDR PC2700 512 MB • CL=2.5 • Unbuffered • Non-parity • 6ns • 2.5V • 64Meg x 64
Intel Pentium 4 2.4BGHz 512K 533MHz CPU Northwood P478
Maxtor 80GB 7200RPM Hard Drive Model 8 MB Cache
Creative Audigy 2 Platinum
ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 8500DV


I'm going to do some video editing, (not much) gaming, sound editing, 3d graphics..

Is this a good start or do I need to look further?

Thank you,

Looks good, powersupply will be plenty enough.
You might want to considder a faster videocard though if you want to do much gaming and 3D graphics.

My dual-PSU PC is so powerfull that the neighbourhood dimms when I turn it on :eek:

More than Adequate you could go with the 350 and save some dough.

It should be fine with the TRUE series (as opposed to the LIE series, ie all my standard Antec 250W units start dropping the voltage around 160W and crap out around 180W).

I also have problem with older PSU but the TRUE series seem to be fine.

Right, but I have a newer untrue PSU with the same problems.

Should be more than adequate for your needs. I have a TruePower 480 and it's superb.

Good spec too!
