Hey guys. Im looking at getting this system.

gt 430 which states it needs a minimum 300 w power supply.

sempron 140

4 gigs ram

500gig hdd

pci wireless adapter

880g mobo

How small a psu can I get away with?

Im looking at this case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811322013

it says 250 watt constant and 450 watt peak.

Will this be able to handle it?

Also these cases as well

Any advice?

What's your mobo? Can it fit in those cases you linked? The GT 430 wouldn't fit in those cases since they're even shorter than a standard HTPC.

I'd say a quality 250w would be enough, but get 300w just to be safe.

Any of the seasonic ones will be rock solid.

The GT430 has a 49w TDP and sips power. You should be able to run that system off of a quality 250-300w power supply without issue.

Yeah, but 450 allows him to get alot more, upgrade, ETC.

This looks like more of a low-power HTPC, etc. build than one that will be built up in the future, so potential upgradability to components with higher power conumption is not a concern in my recommendation. The OP can upgrade in the future and maintain a similar power draw.

Thank you for the replies, I want to stick to as low power consumption as possible .Upgrades wont be a issue with this pc.

The only issue now is will all these fit into the sentey slim 2420 flex case?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811322013

the gt430 is low profile, zonet wireless adapter is low profile, the 880g mobo is a micro atx mobo

I believe it does, as it says "expansion slots 4 low profile"

But someone had mentioned that it wouldnt?
