Is this power supply ok?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a AMD Athlon 64 4000+ that I am trying to overclock. The power supply is an Antec Truepower 2.0 430w. The problem is on bootup it sometimes resets 3 times before it actually starts to load windows but once windows is runnung it doesn't reset or crash. Do you think I need a bigger psu?

That is enough, but barely, I'd get a 480W - 550W, you can get them for cheap but you need to get a reliable company, definately. A great PSU is: OCZ GameXStream 600W - $100. That's a great PSU and it'll last you, anything cheaper is crude, anything more exspensive, is wasted. That'll be good for a Core 2 Duo and SLi, so you won't need to worry about your PSU for quiet a long time.
