Could anyone help me with a power estimate please?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I've decided to build a carputer and I've bought myself an m4 atx 250w 300w peak psu
The spec is as follows
I3 2100 cpu
Evga Stinger z77 itx board
Gtx560oc gpu by gigabyte
Ocz vertex 3 ssd
Gps receiver

Would the Psu die out really quick or could it handle this?
the extreme psu calculator said the minimum is 247w and the recommended power is 293w which is still below the peak

Thanks in advance
Jay

That estimation is pretty spot on, 250W should do it, though I'd suggest a cooler, less power hungry VGA (for such a system).

Thanks, I was hoping it could work
And I would buy a cooler VGA but the thing is I've got it already from my xpredator build which I'm planning to start fresh on again in the future as I went too budget like the first time
In terms of cooling, I'm looking at a laing d5 to watercool the CPU and VGA because after searching a few times it's sort of the best pump for long distances (spare wheel well to front grille to 360 radiator). If this isn't powerful enough then it'll be a Bosch chargecooler which should theoretically work better
