Choosing a PSU

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Im in a bit of a pickle here...i dont have money for a good psu right now but im getting a good deal for my mobo and ram and i was wondering if my thermaltake 430w psu could handle my new system ( i know its a crappy psu but i was a complete newb when i put it together)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153023

Could it support this


E6300 Processor

Asus p5B deluxe intel mobo

1x74gb raptor HD 2x250gb Seagate Sata drives

2x1gb Corsair Dominator XMS2 ram

6800gs

Dvd burner

Couple cathodes and gadgets


Im not going to OC until i get a good psu and h/s/f
Do you think it could support this rig or fry all my parts

I'm not sure, I doubt it to tell you the truth, just for the safety of your hardware, I would rather spend a couple more $xx that to ruin that nice rig.

Don't buy thermaltake. Friend bought one of their 500W ones at labor day sale at Fry's and the thing started acting up a couple days back. Here's a 400W FSP one, as long as you dont OC I think you're good

$40 is pretty cheap. You may be better off just waiting till you get the cash to buy a OCZ GXS or similar...or longer to buy a PC&C.
