300 watt max enough power?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a stock hp a1610n with a hipro 300 watt max output. I also have an aftermarket 6200LE, a GB of g-skill on its way, a 120mm with led, abd will be getting another CD-drive soon. Should I worry about my PSU? I feel like all that stuff would use a lot of watts...and dont need my PSU "droppin a deuce" on me. thanks for any help

Estimated Power Usage:
X2 = 89w@12v (stock)
6200 LE = around 30w@12v
120mm fan = 5w@12v
HD = 6w@12v, 6w@5v
Optical drive = 10w@12v, 10w@5v
RAM = 20-30w@3.3v
Motherboard = 50w

You sould be ok even if you add a Optical Drive since it doesn't run all the time.
Once again...

the efficiency probably is somewhere around 80 or 70, so with duckie's calculations, you may be pushing the edge with it, but it should be okay for now, in the future i would look into upgrading the psu
