How many watts?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
idk how many watts i need?
http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine recommended 657w, but is it a reliable source? I asked someone people and they told me 430-500w would be enough, but i did add a fan and an extra graphics card since then...

PSU calculators aren't reliable, don't use them. What will the PSU be powering?

Will probably fit, but wouldn't you like something a bit more roomy? Like the Antec 902 for example.
