PSU advice for C2D rig - Page 2

3x512?

Dude, it would be better to use either 2x512, or 2x1gb....hell, even 4x512 would be better. always keep it even, so you get dual channel.

I'd say 28a on the 12v should be plenty. Try and find an ocz, enermax, antec, or something like that....

Enermax Noisetaker 420 Watts is on a site located in the UAE ( where I am for now) and it proposes this one for 99$ dual 12v rails at 18A each. Has some heat protection which would be perfect for me.
However, i am dang broke after buying the VGA and the RAM and the CPU (which sells for bout 270$ here) so would it cause much damage if i use the 10$ PSU (if it is enough) for a couple of weeks till i can get my hands on some cash ?

That looks to be a suitable psu for your system.

Do NOT run it with the $10 psu. It may fry all your components and is a sheer unnecessary risk to your pc. Do NOT do it.

I think you should take that 450 out of your old computer if you still have it and use that for awhile, its proven to be solid. And if you still need that computer then put the $10 on in it.

I might just do that, but wouldn't that risk just making my P4 PC unusable ?


Edit: Enermax Liberty 400W seems more appropriateas it seems to have dual core support and 80% efficiency overall with more connectors.

Well it is a choice really, if you think that it will make it unstable, which I dont think it will, don't use your new computer until you can get the PSU, or don't use the P4 computer, I know which one I would choice.

well, I went for the Enermax Liberty 400W(link above). If anyone has any feedback on it, please post!
But I have to get a refund from the x1300 I got. Instead, I will be using the S3 Trio 64+
Found that one in my dad's OLD pc, (it;s from ~1997) lol.
Couldn't even finish booting XP on it , but it should work nice enough for a linux distro.
