I'm planning to build my own system for the first time, and I'm wondering how big a power supply I need. Can anyone give me an estimate?
2 512MB sticks of PC3500 memory
2 Seagate SATA hard drives, probably in raid 0
Samsung CDRW/DVD drive
PowerColor ATI 9800 Pro 128GB
I haven't decided on speakers yet, but there will be some, probably a set of 5.1 compatible ones.
I'm thinking of overclocking the FSB by 10% or so, and the Vcore and Vdimm voltages may need to be adjusted upward slightly. I've also read somewhere that the PowerColor 9800 card comes slightly overclocked already.
Can someone offer an estimate of how much power the rig above would need? Also, I'd like to hear opinions on a decent case (for less than $40 without the PSU, preferably).
