FSP PSU, can't choose

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok Now Help me with this
The PSU


I decided for a FSP PSU probably a Bue Storm edition. But wich one of them?
i have to choose between:
Blue Storm II 400w or 500w
They all are listed Here
The Blue Storm II 400w would be the best to get for my budget
Blue Storm II prentation: Here

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ socket AM2
Motherboard: Gigabyte Socket AM2 GA-M55S-S3
Monitor: Samsung 19" LCD SyncMaster 913N
Cooling: Stock at first, then afterwards i buy a better one
Case: Codegen 4063-CA Black/Silver without PSU
GPU: XFX GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI-E
Harddrive: First i use old 37 Gb IDE one Afterwards i buy sata drive
RAM: Something from Kingston, Buffalo, Corsair, G Skill or Geil (probably 2 x 512 mb OR 2 x 1 gb)

The actual main question is if the Blue Storm II 400 w is enough?
Please reply, not much time left ;P

500w all the way.

the 400W psu will DEFINETLY be enough to run your system. I have a forton sparkle that ran this:

E6300
asus P5nE SlI
4GB DDR800
36GB raptor
500GB WD sata hdd
X1800XT 512mb
2 DVD RW drives

But the 400w will most likely be running at it's maximum so you dont want that, she may not last too long. Spend the extra 10 pounds, do it for your baby, she will give ya many more years of love, plus if you decide later to buy an 8800gts or an HD2900XT, you'd be strapped right there...

Yes a 400W can run your pc fine,I ran a 300W psu with a 8600GT and it worked fine if i can run a 300W PSU then you can run your PC with a 400W and a 500W
