Are these watts enough !!!??

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
i know the answer for my question already

these are my computer Specs >> as shown below

i didn't check my power supply output when i had the computer

so .. i'm running it right now ( since a month ) and i haven't noticed any thing weird at all

fortunately .. i have the right to return the whole device to seller .. cauze he the one who told me that my PSU is 400 watt

but is it necessary to do that ?? i mean.. is it possible that my chips have been damaged ??

at last .. please , give your advise for a convenient PSU with the lowest budget

I dont think its NECESSARY if everything's working fine but if you want a nicer PSU I would suggest the SeaSonic S12 series, they are the best there is:

330W for $59

380W for $77
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151022

430W for $99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151023

500W for $129
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151024

and 600W for $149, this is what I have
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151025

In reality even the 330W should be fine for your system since these are VERY high quality PSUs but I would either get the 430W for $99 or go all out and get the 600 for $149, it really is a great price for what you are getting.

yeah, I don't think there will be a problem w/ your rig... you've just been underpowering it. I would highly suggest you get a new psu though. maybe you can get some cash back from the guy who you got it from. for your rig I would suggest a quality 500w psu.

tell him that you have to have at least a 350w psu to run that 6600GT... he can look at the specs and manufacture suggestions and it will back you... then try to get some money out of him.

then get either a Seasonic S12-500, OCZ powerstream 520 or a Sunbeam Nuuo

it would improve stability more than anything else. Also, it'll allow you to power more devices.
