Hey guys, I have a Coolermaster eXtreme Power RP-650-PCAR 650Watt
I am looking to buy the following parts for my new build:
http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=13&bid=5&sid=35075 - i7 920 Intel Quad Core
http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=106&bid=5&sid=37175 - Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R X58
http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=153&bid=5&sid=38277 - Kingston Hyperx 6G(3x2G)

I am already running:
http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=82&bid=5&sid=48031 - Gigabyte GTX 260 GeForce GPU
What I want to know is will my PSU be strong enough to run those parts/what ever else I have in my computer once I put the new parts in.
Any other info you need let me know. Thanks.

Re: PSU question involving MOBO/Processor.

My first thought would be to use OCZ-G,Skill or Corsair RAM.
The Coolermaster "should" be sufficient but I would prefer a Seasonic or Corsair for peace of mind.

Building new PC, PSU and size problems.

Hey guys, I just want to know; will my GPU fit in my Soprano case: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/thermaltake_soprano_dx/ - Dimensions on the page.

I have a GTX 260: http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=82&bid=5&sid=48031

A guy on youtube had a GTX260 in the same case as me with a Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3 motherboard(it fitted quite well): http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2843

My GTX 260 currently fits in my Soprano Case (Link at top of page), My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2778

I am looking to buy the following parts for a new PC setup:
i7 920 2.66 GHZ Processor - http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=13&bid=5&sid=35075

Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R Motherboard - http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=106&bid=5&sid=37175

Kingston Hyperx 6G(3x2G) Ram - http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=153&bid=5&sid=38277
___________________________________________________________________________
Also I have a CoolerMaster 650Watt Extreme Plus PSU - http://umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=106&bid=5&sid=37175

Will that powersupply be good enough for the 3 parts above and the GTX 260 I have linked?

Thanks.

Re: PSU question involving MOBO/Processor.

I would suggest OCZ-G.Skill-Corsair for performance RAM.

Re: PSU question involving MOBO/Processor.

in my case all comps were off was watching tv in the lounge the damage cost throughout the house was in the thousands

it only took the psu in my com which was a quality unit cost over $300
the ups
wiped out the daughters comp completely in another room
the foxtel box
the front wireless doorbell
the 3 phone 2.4ghz system whose line ran through the ups
the house surge protector was not of much use because the surge came from the inside out instead of he outside in

a previous failure the supply just stopped supplying enough power

it's a matter of luck as to the end result

it's up to you to make the ultimate decision

Re: PSU question involving MOBO/Processor.

I have no idea what decision to make though, I am low budget and would do anything to save a bit. Ontop of the parts ive linked you I want Windows 7 so I dont have to wipe again in a year when games will need it, PSU is 200$ more and than what ever else follows.

Re: PSU question involving MOBO/Processor.

it's not a good move to compromise on the psu cut back on other components

shop around for components they don't have all come from the same place prices vary a lot
i order from all over the country brisbane,sydney melboune as well as locally in perth

Re: PSU question involving MOBO/Processor.

Using a low quality/underpowered CPU is putting your other hardware in jeopardy.
Get a quality PSU now and save your money until you can get then other hardware ar just wait until you have the money to purchase everything at once.
