9800GTX+/955 BE on 500w?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Topic. Will this work?

Getting new parts next month and was wondering if I could just opt out of getting a new supply if I don't need it.

^ the PSU I have. I got it about 2 years ago.

I been rocking the exact psu, folding 2 8800GTS (G92) for about 2 years 24/7 lol.
I also have an E4500 in that rig oced to 3.0ghz. It's been totally solid for me.

80 PLUS doesn't necessary indicate that a PSU is good or not. The Basiq might be fine but I would look for something better like this Earthwatt PSU:
