200 watts enough power for..? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Newegg doesn't seem to leave much for what the case you're using uses
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=1&name=TFX12V

I would say go with the FSP... but I'm not sure how comfortable I would be with a 300W PSU.. I'm sure the 300W will work fine.... but I would say perhaps cutting it close. Only because I know those AMD CPUs like to consume power. Have you considered a Core alternative? Because 32nm really helps out with power consumption. Or perhaps waiting a little bit to see how much the Bulldozer CPUs will be next month?

He wants to use a mITX case...I think.

Not too many options in that price point. The Seasonic on that list is okay. Decent, but nothing spectacular. But I doubt the FSP could be much better.

They used an Core i7 980X (3.3GHz) with an HD 6570, total power draw at outlet was 181W which means 200W should be sufficient, however you have to consider the efficiency of the power supply, even at 85% efficiency you will be short.

Go with at least a 300W to be safe.
Wall draw =/= not an accurate way to calculate your wattage needs. Even if you factor in efficiency.

Actually the SeaSonic SS-300TFX is quite good. Better than decent.

That FSP TFX unit is alright as well.
