SFX PSU for future NCase M1 build?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I plan on downsizing to an ITX build and hopefully using the NCase M1 [http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1717132]

If I wanted to power an i5-2500K, 2x4 GB of DDR3 RAM, a Samsung 830 SSD, a GTX 660 MSI Twin Frozr, and a couple fans, how much wattage would I need?

Could a small form factor power supply provide enough power? The largest ones I've seen are only 450W :\

I know my current 650W PSU is overkill, but since the NCase M1 is smaller, I think it would be better if I could get a small form factor PSU instead of a full sized ATX one.

From PSUcalc you need minimum 380W but go with 430W-450W.

I ould recommend the first one. It's pretty good, fully modular so you can maximize space in the small case, and it's 80+ Gold Certified. Not bad if you ask me

GTX 660 uses less than 140W. i5 less than that even overclocked. Ram, SSD and fans use barely anything. I would be surprised if your system draws over 300W from the wall when loaded. 450W SFX PSU will be ample.
