I say keep it too ;) Once you get it built you can check the rails..and go from there  :)

:rolleyes: looking at the rails.... i would not expect too much out of it:

that is a pretty powerful system you are putting together there.....the new setup could make quick work of that psu! :P

It would be a little less wattage if you didn't have the Geforce 6800 GT listed twice ;)

....yeah, a little! :P

 

maybe that example was for a SLI setup?

 

anyways, it could still be a heavy +12v load for that psu.....i'm not saying it won't work with it, but i'd look into a better one if it were my system.

I have the same but does she need it?I think that matters most :erm:

Well the OCZ has very healthy 12v and 5v rails. AMD 64's tend to get "funny" if the PSU isnt pumping enough amps. A good PSU is often the overlooked piece in a system. The 470 will do fine too. Watts isnt as important as amps and stability in the 64"s. Edited by SIK_L_CELL

A quality 350w and up will do without any overclocking. I'm running this on my other athlon64 without any problems and have used the 6800gt with the setup.

True, but the way I see it is, why save a few bucks now and have to spend more later. Plus knowing that it isnt my PSU giving me problems is priceless.

I agree. My 520w powerstream is the best power supply I have used and in the future plan to use other ocz power supplies.

 

They also come with a 5 year warranty. :woot:

Very true I love mine too!!! :P

 

 

But I think she can build her PC without problems..as long as the connections are there ;)

NOPE...I want you to explain to DL that she needs a $140 power supply...why would she need it and what would it do for her and why???

Sure, first of all you dont "need" a $149 PSU. I bet that 350watt Enermax will be just fine, but I would look at the OCZ 470. The psu is the powerplant of your system. all electronics and AMD64's especially for that matter run better and safer on CLEAN, STEADY power. OCZ is by far the best performance for the money I have found. And your system will be upgradable on a quality PSU. So if you use all quality components you can rest assured that you will spend more time enjoying your new rig than troubleshooting. Didnt mean to step on anyones toes, Just my 2 cents.

You can do better than that JackeL ;)

just borrowed the picture is all! :P

 

onecool, i'm not suggesting she buy a $140 psu (although that would not be a bad thing).....there are plenty in the $70 to $100 range that will do a lot better than the one she has.

 

hell, i'm not suggesting she buy a new one at all......but if it were mine :yup:

 

:beer:

I've got this 470W power supply http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-103-446&depa=0 the fools just forgot to list the other 12v rail. One rail is 16A and the other is 15A

 

Here is a power supply calculator to determine what you need.

http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/

It reccomends a 362W power supply for my AMD system.
