PSU Decision, Please Advise

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am getting an e6300 and planning on oc'ing it to around 3.0. 7950gt for the GPU that I might OC some also. 2gb ram. 4 case fans and a Zalman on the cpu and another on the GPU. Anyway, the PSU I have picked right now is the 600w OCZ Gamer blah blah supply. Is this 600w enough since I am going to OC the CPU and possibly the 7950gt as well? I have just heard the 7950 is a little power hungry so I dont know if using it and overclocking it and the cpu would require a psu greater than what I have picked. Let me know, thanks!

It should be enough, but there's a chance that 7950 will suck enough power to make things unstable.

600W should be enough. Just make sure you get one with dedicated rails. You may want to consider a 700W PSU to avoid instability issues that sudo mentioned.

That PSU you have selected will be just fine.

I'm just amazed that these computers suck so much power. Think of the environment, mind you a 7950 would be nice. just make sure you plant a tree.
