What my old TP3-550 can take?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm currently running a antec TP3-550W on my old gaming computer. It's pretty good for my current computer, but I would love to know if it could power correctly a new computer (let say a i5 2500k (OC on stock cooler) + P8P67 pro) and keep my 4850.

I will not change the GPU before changing my PSU (next upgrade after the CPU/MB/RAM).

So, will the little beast would keep a decent recent computer?

It will also power: 5 Fan + 2 HDD + 4850 + DVD drive.

Perhaps. You should wait until Phaedrus or TwoCables chimes in, those guys know PSUs.

It's an outdated but reliable unit, it'll power your planned setup without any issue.

It's an older psu but going off of it's rated Amps on it's rails, you should be fine.

The PSU is almost 4 years old, and I never regret it.
It might be in my computer till summer, after that I will give him a peaceful end in a second computer or a small HTPC.
