Choose Me A Power Supply! - Page 2

post #11 of 12
600-650W will be ok with your system. If the budget is not a constraint, get one with higher effciency.

I have a system runnig in CF and SLI (GTX 285) for 3 years now on a 620W PSU. My wall power metre only measures Max of 500W, which I only get while benchmarking.

Gaming is about 300-350W which is the usual usage of my PC. Normally as a rule of thumb, you need to be at 50-70% of your power supply capacity in your normal use just for safety reasons.

Hey, think positive, you will always have money soon to upgrade your system!
