Hello Forumers, Me again
Well, I was just reading around this forum cuz my computer will be here in a few days so I have to start building
Its gonna be fun! (First time builder).
Anyway, I bought a computer for a friend for Xmas and I have no Idea about PSU's etc so I was wondering if anyone can help, He plays only one game, CS!. And that plays on any computer I think, I bought him an additional video card (Not the latest but its pretty good...).
I only got it for him because he is going overseas soon And I will never see him again
(We have known each other since we were little kiddies).
I have spare ram for him, So I only got him 512 (I have an extra 1Gb DDR2 to give him). here are the specs; And I yeah Im wondering if the PSU is good for it.
80G Western Digital Caviar 7200rpm HDD
Thermaltake Soprano Black with 430W PSU
Intel ATX E6300 CORE 2 DUO /1.86GHz/2MB CACHE/1066FSB/LGA775
DDR2 512MB PC5300 667Mhz
Asus P5B-E CORE2EE P965 1066FSB Raid SND GbLAN 1394
Creative 2.1 Sound.
Nvidia 6600GT or something like that.. So yeah is 430watt enough?/
Right now I just realised that the computer Im on now has 550watt.. But it only has 512 ram and its pentium D... It came with 300watt and it had all the same stuff in it, But I took it back to the shop for warranty and told them it didnt wanna turn on, so they put me a 550 watt.. (Actually, I wrecked it, I was wondering what that red switch on the back does,, The 230-240 volt thingo)... But I didnt wanna tell them that.
So yeah, Maybe I can switch the PSU? But im a first time builder so meh i can get someone to do it for me.. Or is 430 enough?
