I would personally go for a PC Power and Cooling psu. Check the link on the bottom out if you do decide to play it safe. It is the same price as the Enermax that happens to be 610W.

I think I can prolly save up more for a new PSU, depending on the other components prices. Can anyone link a really good motherboard for my processor? If possible under $100.

GA-P35-DS3L at Newegg, usually 90, and more often than not free shipping.

Hey Chozart, I ran this wattage calculator, and it only came up with 375W. (Q6600, 3Ghz 1.5v, 1 pci nic, 1 sata hdd, 1 dvdrw, 1 usb device, 100% TDP, and 100% system usage) Is this thing way innacurate? I just bought this same psu from another forum, and I was going to upgrade to an e7200, now you've got me worried

If I don't have any other choice than get a new PSU to run my new system then so be it. I looked at newegg

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...24100+-+%24200

Out of the three first PSU's, the most viables for me (price wise) are the 1st and 3rd option. Which one would be better? And... could someone explain if 4 12v rails (in the first one's case) is better than 3? I just want something that could last me for a couple of years or more.

Though it'd be best if you said that this PSU I have would be good enough for my purposes .

I think I may end up getting the PC Power and Cooling but I am still debating between the 4 rails of the OCZ and wattage or that one which is considered to be the best of the PSU's manufacturers. But they say it's quite big and I have a mid tower (Antec Super Lanboy) I'm concerned it won't fit.

Also I may actually just grab an E8400 instead of a Q6600 since I'll just game I suppose.

Number of rails doesn't matter. Quality does. A good quality PSU will do what it states, whether it has one, two, fifty or one thousand rails. Don't even worry about this issue.

I would not get an OCZ... I am not *too* impressed by the ones build by FSP and am unsure about the others. PC Power & Cooling is good though (Seasonic OEM), and 610W / 49A on a single 12V rail is more than plenty power.

But again, at this moment, the best PSU in that pricerange is Corsair (ChannelWell OEM). The TX750 goes for about the same price as the PC Power & Cooling 610W, but delivers more power (750W and 60A on a single 12V rail).

How did I miss this thread?

Ok, lets put up some numbers. Your Liberty will put out 384W on the 12V lines on a good day. A Q6600 a stock uses ~95W and a GTS512 will use ~130W. So a quad and the video card at stock will be fine for your PSU. Overclocking is a different story. A Q6600 @ 3.6GHz can use up to 200W at full load. That puts you at ~85% load on the PSU. That is starting to get up there in my comfort range. A marathon gaming session wouldn't be good for a PSU with a bad reputation for dieing. If you start ocing the gfx and add a couple HDDs and you are going to be overloading the psu.

Now if you were to get a E8400, that is a different story. Stock power draw is ~65W and even overclocking to 4GHz will make it use up ~110W. IMO it would be fine to use the E8400 with your PSU but I can't recommend the quad for long term use with that PSU.

Now for your list of PSUs you linked, Raidmax and Apevia are a BAD idea. I would say no less then 40A on your 12V rail if you are going with an OCed quad.

Right now, about the best deal you can get are the Corsairs from buy.com and provantage.com. The vx550, tX650 and tx750 are all good choices for you and great deals. Buy the highest watt one you can afford. The higher the better obviously to be more future proof. For example the rumored GT200 is said to draw 240W! If this is in indicator of future gfx cards, buy the best you can now so you don't have to buy a new psu AGAIN in a year or two when you upgrade again.
