I think the wattage on the PSU would be sufficient (for 10 days that is, full load 24/7 it would probably be asking a little too much) but that is assuming you have a quality PSU giving you that 750 watts, and I don't know if your PSU is or not. For example a think a Seasonic X750 would do fine with a phenom dual 460s, and a 9800, but I don't know enough about your PSU to say how good it is.

Thanks for the help Greg Miso and Juano. I found a great deal on a 1kw psu ($50) thumb.gif

Uhh I would check with the PSU guys in the PSU section, because IMO a $50 1kW PSU's quality would be suspect. I paid $160 and that was a good sale.

^ This.

I paid £180 for my 1KW PSU, I wouldn't trust a $50 psu even if someone gave me $50 to use it biggrin.gif

Well it's not the worst 1kw PSU. It's an OCZ EliteXstream. It got the HardOCP Editors Choice Gold award so that's gotta stand for something right!? Reviews are mixed though

The PSU is the one thing you should definitely not skimp on. Think about it. Your entire rig depends on the quality and reliability of the power supplied by the PSU. If it goes bad, the least it would do is make your system unstable. At worst it could destroy other components or start a fire.

A good quality PSU is a an investment. It doesn't immediately go obsolete like other computer components do as soon as you buy them. If I was buying a 1000W or larger PSU, I would stick with either Corsair or Seasonic.

How would a 295 Compare to a 560TI in points ?
