I had a question I have some left over parts from old builds and a buddy of mine is making a mid-end gaming system and I am curious if I could give him any to help lower his cost.
I have old DDR2 1GB sticks/A64 cooler that will work but I was wondering if my Power Supply would work too.
CORSAIR CMPSU-450VX 450W the output is +3.3V@20A,+5V@20A,+12V@33A,-12V@0.8A,+5VSB@2.5A
The system he plans to power is this *no overclock*
X2 5400+ BE 2.8ghz
2x 1GB DDR2 800
1x 9800GT (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130380
1x 250GB SATA Seagate Drive
3x 80mm 2x 120mm and 1x 250mm fan
1x DVD/CD Burner
I think it would work...I used the http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
to get a general idea it was under 375w and I know the GPU needs 26 Amp which it covers but I am not sure about the rest.
Is it cutting it close or will it be just fine? Rate I am going he is gonna get one cheap upgrade.
