Could this hypothetical PSU handle a


2 gigs of ram

athlon 2 regor

mini itx mobo, atm biostar a880g, but I dont mind changing for lower wattage use.

EDIT crap, forgot another question. I dont plan to overclock anything, could I go with less wattage on the psu, how low. I want to go low as possible. Thanks again.

External PSU? Do you mean unregulated PSUs (aka power brick)?

These are inefficent and hard to design at higher loads.... that is why we use switching PSUs at higher wattages.

For that build, you can probably get away with a quality 200w unit.
