e6600 and evga 680i - PSU question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a rosewill rp500 power supply, evga 680i mobo, 2gb 800mhz ram, 7600GT, seagate 320gb, couple of dvd burners, big typhoon, 3 silverstone 120cfm fans. I am currently overclocked and fairly stable with an occassional reboot. Im not orthos stable but otherwise non gaming stable. MY QUESTION is, is this 500 Watt PSU capable of pushing all these things along with a 3.4ghz overclocked 6600 or have i technically reached my limits and should probably up the PSU in wattage and quality. I dont want to if its close but if it really is a necessary then I will but then which brand has the highest reputation for quality and what wattage should i go with. im definitely not gonna go with 1000 or anything close but 700-750 maybe. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated if i truly need one. Thanks, IM STILL TRYNIG

PSU isn't an issue with your setup at all. Your 500w has more than enough to power it all. Have you checked your voltages though? Make sure they are stready and within 3-5% of rated line.
