How many watts? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
If you're going to overclock you should get a good case with good airflow.

The Coolermaster HAF 912 is a good inexpensive case at $60

Coolermaster CM690 II is a good choice too. ($70):

This is very true. You never know when you might need/want more power, so going for more than you really need is always a good plan.

Corsair HX 850 will be good for you.. I bought a 1000 Watt just to make sure that if I add something else I have plenty of power. Remember, You only use what your system uses. So buying a bigger PSU than what you need doesn't mean that you pay more Electricity. You don't. Your PSU gives you what you need and nothing more.

Folding is something you do on your computer and has nothing to do with saving you money. It's a bit like benchmarking.
