PSU - Enough for this system?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi Experts

I have a system

i7 - 2600K
Patriot Gamer8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
GIGABYTE GA-P67A-D3-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67
1 IDE 7200 rpm Sata 6 hard drive
1 DVD/CD Rom
1 EVGA GTX 460 1GB Video Card

1. i have a 400W power supply, will that be enough? http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp says i will only need 317W at max if i don't overclock. If i overclock, i will need about 380W. Does that number sounds right or i need a new PSU?



Thanks for help smile.gif

That's enough if the 400W unit in question is of good quality. What's the brand and model?

This? http://www.yang-it.de/ps_GPS-400BB-A.htm

I would invest in a better quality PSU, also I don't believe it will have all of the output connectors you'll need for your build. Corsair builder series are usually a good choice on the budget.

This Corsair 430 V2: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

$29.99 after MIR with free shipping

Thank you.

If i want to overclock the cpu to 4.5G or to 5G and overclock GPU, how much Watts i will need? Like a good brand with 500W will be enough?

For the little extra headroom, I would just suggest the 500W version of what I previously posted, which is ~$15 more than the 430W after MIR.

Don't listen to this guy, get this instead MUCH higher quality:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371035&cm_re=antec_500w-_-17-371-035-_-Product

Edit: No offence to the guy above me, just saying this unit is much better than the Corsair 500w for cheaper with no waiting for MIRs

How about Thermaltake TR2?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153114

Newegg offers 15% on All Thermaltake Power supply. SO it will be 75-20MR-11.25 = $44 too and 600W.

No, go with the one I posted. It's a quality unit. 2 PCIe connectors and 80+ Bronze(lower energy bills). It's enough for your build plus some really nice overclocking.
