300W enough for this system?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am building a system in an Anted Cube. It has a 300W power supply, and I was wondering if it will be sufficient. I think it will, as I have run a P4, 6800, HDD, DVD, and CD-RW on a 300W before.... This is not for me, but I am being paid to build it.

Yes it should be ok.
The Intel Celeron should consume about 84W.
I don't think the 7300GS will consume more than 60W (check this site where it says the 7800GT only consumes 57W at peak 3D).
Assuming the DVD burner consumes 30W, the motherboard consumes 25W, the hard drive consumes 25W as well and the 1 stick of DDR2 consume 7.5W.

You get roughly 230W for the total.

You can get much better details about power consumption for individual components by checking this website. This is where I got most of my numbers used above.

yeah, should be ok, but im not sure how long it will last. Check the power supply requirements of the 7800gs then go from there.

I'm assuming that's a typo... unless they make 4 GHz Cellys now.
