A8 5600k + crossfire motherboard, which PSU?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My budget is really short and these are the only PSU i can afford. My parts have arrived at the shop so i'll be picking them up in 1 hour but someone here told me that the previous PSU that i ordered was only 180W (even though it stated 420W) because on the 12V rail it was providing 180W only. However i'm confused whether these PSU would be bad just like that one or not.

My requirement:

HD 6570 would be crossfired with 7560d
a8 5600k with no overclock
4GB DDR3, one stick
2 HDDs
1 DVD DRIVE


These are the PSUs i have chosen:

http://prodimex.ch/pInfos.aspx?CODE=11745&D=Alimentation++500W+LC-POWER+Office+Series+(V2.2)+-+%5bLC500H-12%5d

http://prodimex.ch/pInfos.aspx?CODE=10850&D=Alimentation++400W+EUROCASE+PFC.+-+%5bEC400WX9%5d (This one is more expensive)


I chose these ones also because they're in stock so i don't have to wait for another 4 days :S

Hello,

In my opinion these psu's are way to low in watts to handle any crossfire or overclocking....I would bump it a little higher then ya got, esp if you plan to crossfire, and for future upgrades.

Thing is, the igpu doesn't require that many watts. Can you please tell me how i can calculate the amount of watts that each power supply would provide?
