Will my PSU be good enough for this?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hi.
I have bought all the pieces together for a build
The build consists of a:
AMD ii Phenom x6
Corsair 8 GB ram
1 tb hard drive

I have not purchased the graphics card yet, but im looking towards a gtx 560 (not ti) which i will probably overclock. The psu that i got with my case is http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...690&CatId=1509
Will my PSU be good enough for the gtx 560 which maybe overclocked?
If not i was thinking about these 2 http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...168&CatId=5431
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...113&CatId=1079

Are these 2 good and which one is better? If there is anything better could you please post it. Thanks!

The 650w psu (your first choice) would be your best bet and give you a bit more headroom for any future upgrades. To get a good estimate on your systems power draw try using a power supply calculator like this one @ http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Cheers.

Edit: And I don't know why you would get a Diablo Tek PSU...unless of course your aim is to blow up your hard ware in a creative way

Oops, I thought you were talking about the one in the combo offered with the case, my mistake. The one with the case is listed at 450w according to the page you linked. You may still want to check out the psu calculator, it should give you a decent estimate and you can play around with adding another video card etc. if you plan to do that sometime in the future.
